It is our pleasure to bring you a very special Basement Coders podcast live from San Francisco. We were given the opportunity to sit down with James Gosling, creator of Java. We do apologize for the background noise on this one, it was taped gorilla style at a coffee shop in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art during a busy lunch hour. But if you can filter out the noise you won't be disappointed as you'll get to learn some interesting facts about James, where he grew up, how is career took Shape and how Java was born. We also find out what James is up to these days and his thoughts on the current state of Java.
