Java Pub House

Lambdas... You have heard about it, it's like those celebrities that are everywhere (Tom Selleck). Well, is time to go and actually meet the great start. In this episode, me (Freddy) and Bob go deep into Lambdas, what they really are (are they magical?) and why would you want to use them. So Join in and let's listen to the most awaited feature of Java 8!

(And yes, the title is a reference to the "Revenge of the Nerds", how appropiate isn't it :)

And we are ramping up again! This is an exciting time to be developing in Java. With the advent of Java 8, lambdas, streams, Jigzaw and the Internet of Things, we are coming back big! In this episode we introduce our co-host Bob Paulin, and offer a glimpse of Java 8, Jigsaw, Streams, and OSGI Standard.

So you have programmed for a while, and may even never realized that you have been using them, but there are static methods (which in turn can create static classes), inner classes and static inner classes. Sometimes is hard to understand why or when to use these, but never fear! After listening to this episode you will never get an unexpected static surprise!

So, here's the deal, I went down from Chicago to JavaOne 2013, and took Bob Paulin along. There are sooo many sessions and such great content that it was really hard to know when to start. So we decided to do something cool! We set-up shop in the heart of JavaOne and grab unsuspecting speakers and ask them to spare a couple of minutes to tell us about their sessions (all awesomeness!). 

And the good news is that Oracle will make all of the presentations referred in this talk (and much more) available for everyone! Take a listen and prepare to be amazed by the awesome presenters of JavaOne.

It happens all the time, you are working and suddenly you need to database an object. And maybe you have a fancy O/R Mapper or something like that, but we seldomly ask 'do we really need this in a relational format?'. There are actual alternatives (from byte serialization to xml, to, oh, my, NoSql databases). Here we explore the reasons why you may want to skip the Object Relational mapping and concentrate more on ease of development!

So we hear about HyperThreading and how it is sooo cool, well, it is and it isn't. If you are really trying to squeeze performance out of your application HyperThreading might not be what you're looking for. There are so many other things that happens at the CPU level that have so weird names (like Thread Thrashing, 'say whaaaat?'). If you are really serious on squeezing every worthy CPU cycle of your app (or if you're interesting on what really really goes under the hood) take a listen! (ah! and treat me a beer, if you like what you hear!)

Have you ever wonder how bit masking work (or what is that?) and why do you need it? Or why a tree structure exists? (or what is breadth first vs depth first), or what are game trees? We put our Computer Science hat and go "depth first" in some fundamental compsci concepts, and, more importantly their utility, ending with Game trees (and they are not only used for games)!

This is a presentation I did for the Chicago Java Users Group on the topic of multithreading. There are some solid foundations in here to start tackling multithreading programming. Some of it might've been already been seen in depth from our other episodes, but in all, it has good foundations for anyone that does multithreading programming.

You remember recursion right? that ugly, confusing thing they made you do either on CS-300, or at job interviews. Have you ever wondered how to make it safe and right? and why do we really use recursion? In this episode we go into proper recursion programming (and lose the fear of making it wrong), and understand why stacks get filled with it, and what problems do they really solve (answer, not many).

In addition we talk about the nature of Double objects, vs double the primitive (And why it is so hard to do == comparisons in doubles), plus some little known things about Strings (like interning). In all it has a little bit for everyone, so take a listen!

Episode 34. New Year's (2013) Resolution! Less bugs and more coverage! ----

Ok, so we all celebrated (but may not remember) the end of the old year and the beginning of a new year! This is a time for starting new things, and trying to be a little better. How about starting by looking at our code and squish some bugs! By using findbugs we can easily test for the 'duh' (and some not so duh) bugs quickly by looking and automatically analyzing our code. After adding Findbugs, we can then add Emma, which will look and measure our unit test code coverage (if you are into such a thing). These two tools are like the Richard Simmons that let us lose the unwanted bug weight in this new year!
