The New Java Developers
Meet some of the young developers creating the future of Java. BY TORI WIELDT
As the Java developer community lead for Oracle, the best part of my job is going to Java conferences and getting to know developers. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting developers who are smart, fun, and passionate about Java—these individuals make the Java community happen. Here we introduce you to some of the youngest Java developers I’ve met around the world. They range in age from 18 to 27 and have been drawn to this field by Java’s flexibility, breadth, and energetic
open source community. It’s great to see a whole new generation of Java developers contributing to the vibrancy of our community. The future is in good hands.
