Episode 33 – Java is a Dead End from Stockholm’s Jfokus Conference
Mike Gualtieri, an Analyst, wrote an article for Forrester (i.e. the people your boss listens to instead of you) about how Java has outlived it's usefulness as a business language. Troll much? It's no surprise it caught fire becoming Forrester's widest read and commented article. Mike recently did a followup presentation justifying his claims.
