is a good friend of the Basement Coders, I know one of the reasons I look forward to JavaOne is because I know him and his ZeroTurnaround team will be there. They always have the most rocking booth at JavaOne and instead of it being manned by PR folks, it's the geeks of the company who work it (although Oliver White
is awesome too!).
Jevgeni fills us in about the new product releases of JRebel and LiveRebel happening over at ZeroTurnaround and we also discuss the hot-button topic that is OSGi. You see, Jevgeni is a bit outspoken against OSGi, where as our own cast member Jeff Genender is an OSGi fan boi. Me? Well I'm just continually asking myself "OSG-why?" If I can't get a canonical dependency like Hibernate to work with it, what is it's point of existence...
Also Jevgeni mentions GeekOut which is the Estonian Java Developer's June 14-15 2012 which boasts a great line up of speakers. Since it's taking place in Estonia, birthplace of ZeroTurnaround, you know it's gonna be a non-stop geek party as well!
Thanks for the great cast Jevgeni!
