I have put myself forward for the JCP (Java Community Process) elections in order to participate in the Executive Committee. To be honest, I have little experience in political and I know at this time, many of you will be feeling jaded about the real politics. However, this issue is about the future of Java. […]

This is a warning to the reader; your might feel at the end of this entry that it is all Dickens’s Christmas Carol and “Bah! Humbug!”. You would be rightfully semi-accurate in your analysis, of course. Quite simply, I hate when I go to an interview that is either face-to-face with a potential employer, or […]

I remember the year 2010 for the FIFA World Cup Final in South Africa watching the amazing tournament matches on BBC TV.

We were five students of Kirk Pepperdine’s Java Performance Tuning Course, which took place in September 2011 near Chania, Crete.
