The Programmer's Price

This is a long article but it's worth reading through. Marc Cantor shared it on his FB page. You hear "hey, it's all about API's and integration these days" and in some cases that's true. There's more to being a great developer than that, though. It's increasingly hard to sift through the hoards of applicants or your tight circle to build teams. Thoughts? More

OrlandoJUG September

Hello OJUG,I'm in San Francisco for Java One. Chris Schaefer is doing a great job with the Sarasota JUG and Vlad's hosting some amazing presentations at the Tampa JUG. The JAX Jug is busy as usual. Miami JUG is on hiatus until next year. Meanwhile, there are tons of interesting Meetups around O-Town and the Space Coast. I hope all of you are well and busy. I look forward to another amazing J1 with info to absorb about functional programming, NoSQL, graph db's, Java 8, other languages on the JVM…See More

The Bilingual Developer

These days, it's hard to stick with just one language. Sure, you may be a Java developer or a Rubyist and "not interested" in learning another language. We tend to get comfortable in our comfort zone. But, being a polyglot has its advantages.

I said would have come but neglected to say that I can't because I'm already booked for the night.

Thanks! I would have come to Sarasota for the event, even though it's a bit of a haul, if only because I'm an amature brewer myself. I hardly know anything about Java except for the basics and the awareness from a decade of work that I can do (nearly?) anything in Java which I know how to do in C#. From there, it's just about learning what's common in the community and picking up tips and tricks from the experts.

Thanks for having me!

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest...

What cloud computing really means | Cloud Computing - InfoWorld

Cloud computing is all the rage. "It's become the phrase du jour," says Gartner senior analyst Ben Pring, echoing many of his peers. The problem is that (as with Web 2.0) everyone seems to have a different definition...

Cloud computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).
