It may be my imagination and definitely just anecdotal but I have the distinct impression that the JavaSphere has gone into overdrive. I’m seeing more useful articles, blogs and discussions than I have for a long time. Startups using Java seem to popping up more often than I can remember, job openings seem to be up, and there’s a buzz around Java that we haven’t had for a while. Part of this will be down to Java 8 being released, and part down to the general economy improving, but it seems to me to be even more than that. I have a sneaking suspicion that we’ve entered a strong Java upswing. I guess in time we’ll see if I’m right.
I sometimes list articles written by product vendors in the newsletter. I’m not paid for these, they get in on merit because they’ve got something useful or interesting to say about Java performance. It’s unsurprising really – Java performance tool vendors often have a lot of experience and customer stories about Java performance issues and we all benefit by finding out about the information. It’s always better to learn from others mistakes than to make your own 🙂
