James Governor: The upswing – How Java got its mojo back

Whether we’re talking Analytics, Big Data, Cloud, NoSQL, Continuous Integration and Deployment, Mobile computing or Minecraft, Java is at the nexus of the mass convergence of trends we’re currently seeing in tech. It’s still fashionable in Web developer circles to dismiss Java the language, but its not going anywhere, and the JVM as we know it goes from strength to strength. In this talk, James Governor looks to put the return of Java into context, with both stories, and quantitative data.

The Rise and Fall and Rise of Java – RedMonk’s Stephen O’Grady

The Java ecosystem, long a bastion of stability in an otherwise volatile industry, is often overlooked of late, overshadowed by newer, more hyped alternatives. In many respects, the unrest couldn’t have come at a worse time, as developer attention and focus is fragmenting under a constant stream of platform, language and framework fragmentation. What does this mean for Java advocates? RedMonk’s Stephen O’Grady explores and unpacks the recent events, and looks at likely scenarios moving forward with an eye towards the implications for Java, including the future of Java the language and Java the platform.
