    OffHeap 68. Facebook is in hot-water...again (very Meta)

    So we are technologist, and we create technology, and we live on it... technology on its own is neither good or evil...but what happens when a corporation dives into that gray are of how technology is used? We discuss what it means to have such a big influence in how people get their news, interact with each other, and at what point you can't just say "I don't want to interfere"
    A very pundit-adept topic, we discuss what could possibly be done to help the issue of misinformation while also balancing the need to be heard.

    OffHeap 66. Faster LTS releases? And A new Java license you say? How...peculiar

    OffHeap 66. Faster LTS releases? And A new Java license you say? How...peculiar

    So aside from being all giddy about Java 17 LTS release, we take now a deep dive on the changes that Oracle announced on their release schedule and Licensing. WANL (We are not Lawyers) but that didn't stop us from discussing what could it mean, and where would it go!
    Faster LTS, we are onboard. It's fun to be able to jump from LTS to LTS, but what does that mean for older releases and maintainability (as Oracle longstanding policy is to sunset the "oldest" of LTS when a new one comes out). We see the interesting dynamics on this with the new "Oracle No Fee Terms and Conditions", and what does that mean for Big Red's plan for our favorite programming language.
    In all, an interesting episode to pay attention to (and to know what's important). Like all Licenses, do talk to a real lawyer before adopting a new license (we really are just code monkeys that managed to wrestle a microphone). Or go with another Java open source binary provider on the standard licenses (Like Adoptium!)

    OffHeap 65. Helping your Boss Help You

    OffHeap 65. Helping your Boss Help You

    Allright, on this OffHeap Episode, we invited no other than @kenkousen to talk us about his new book. Helping your Boss Help You! As most of us are really underlings and have managers that we report to, Ken walk us through the things that he discovered work well (and shared stories of what didn't work so well) in a full-on, completely stuffed episode of OffHeap.
    We also dive into some of our tech news around Project Loom and Apple Surveillance. All in all, a very interesting, possibly life-changing episode of OffHeap

    OffHeap 64. Autobots...Rollout to the Bar!

    OffHeap 64. Autobots...Rollout to the Bar!

    Color me jealous! Most of the OffHeap crew (excepting me, Freddy) went back to our roots, and recorded Java Off Heap at the RoundHouse! (The local bar, where Episode 1 was recorded!). It was a great opportunity to be mostly zoom-less and let the conversation flow whenever it wants to flow!
    In addition we got Cedric Hurst (@divideby0) to join us there! In all an interesting evening, with libations, Boston Dynamics Acquisition, a deep discussion on the "Right to Repair", and the implications of GitHub Copilot (the auto-filler AI-powered, FOSS trained helper) on this field!

    OffHeap 63. Don't forget to do your backup kids

    So new things are happening! Jakarta EE 9.1 was released, GraalVM got to 21.1, and Spring Native is now at 0.10.
    We also get a new LightBend CEO (what does this mean?), and the favorite developer Copy-Paste Website (StackOverflow) got bought for (insert Dr. Evil voice here) ONE (.8) BILLION DOLLARS. You didn't hear it first here, BUT we sure talk about what does this mean! (Remember ExpertsExchange?)
    Lastly we dive into a deep discussion on Ransomware and security and how all these things we work everyday can, and are affected by it. Why some companies are keeping up, others are letting security slide, and more importantly, for us as Developers, what kind of role we play on these things.
    A passionate discussion on which we touch many points and explore our involvement on this field!

    OffHeap 62. On Stallman, Apple and Basecamp

    OffHeap 62. On Stallman, Apple and Basecamp

    Right, there were a good tricle of tech news like the release of Scala 3, and that now Microsoft is part of the OpenJDK (hm… we wonder if the JClarity acquision had anything to do w/that ;). But the Internet was rocked by a big tidal wave of D&I avoidance, Social pressure (but some would say Cancel Culture?) and selective historical facts.
    In that we dive to explore what has dominated the tech twitter feeds, facebook post, and essentially comment on the unbelievebable nuclear explosion (implosion in the case of Basecamp) that just happened. With the advent of Basecamp’s new policy (and the pyramid of hate), and the follow-up en-masse resignations, then Apple’s offer, twice rescinded to Antonio Garcia Martinez, to finally the Electronic Frontier Foundation inclusion of Dr. Stallman back on the board (on which, his past is either forgiven, or forgotten) this episode dives into how it got to here, and we piece together how these bungled-up situation blew up in the twittersphere
    Come take a listen and tour with us the reality of being in tech today! Start listening now for a riveting episode ride!
