About 7 years ago, I attended a session given by Java Champion Peter Lawrey, leader of Chronical Software, at a JavaOne conference. Since most of my prior development work in the realm of low-latency high-performance was C/C++ software, I was very interested in hearing what Peter might say about how Java addresses this problem.
I caught up with Peter again recently, and asked him some questions about what’s happened since then, and where we are today. Here are my questions and Peter’s responses.
Today we’d like to introduce a new community manager for all things Raspberry Pi on foojay: Frank Delporte!
He’s really curious about what’s already been created with Java on the Raspberry Pi and what we can all learn together from these experiences.
You can contact him with a direct message on Twitter to discuss further and share articles for publication on foojay: https://twitter.com/frankdelporte.
We’re happy to announce that we’re hosting Chris Newland’s VMOptionsExplorer right here on foojay, providing all details per release on Java command line switches.
It also shows a diff between the currently selected release and the previous release, showing a tab for the switches that have been added and those that have been removed.
From this week, we’re happy to announce that we’re hosting Marc Hoffmann’s Java Version Almanac right here on foojay.
It provides details per release on OpenJDK distributions, new features, and differences between APIs across releases.
Let’s also meet Marc. Here’s a quick interview with him about the Java Version Almanac!
