Earlier this month I attended Pivotal’s SpringOne platform conference in Las Vegas. In case you’re not familiar with it, Spring is a Java Framework “that helps development teams everywhere build simple, portable, fast and flexible JVM-based systems and applications.”
For some of you out there you may be thinking Java is old school and not relevant in in today’s modern world of digital business. Au contraire mon frere.

Some of the ground James covers:
- Facebook as a big Java shop. Twitter as a member of the JCP (Java Community Process)
- Seeing a lot of Java innovation even outside of Android
- Big Data e.g. Hadoop written in Java/JVM
- We will see cloud native Java in the next 3-5 years
