In this podcast Charles Humble and Wes Reisz talk about Java 9 and beyond, Kotlin, .NET Core 2, the surge in interest in organisational culture, quantum computing and more.
Why listen to this podcast:
- Java had a big year with Java 9 shipping, Java EE going open-source and moving to Eclipse as EE4J, and IBM open-sprucing J9. From next year the platform will also be on a bi-annual release cycle with the next two versions (expected to be Java 10 and 11) both shipping during 2018.
- Kotlin joined Scala, Clojure, and Groovy as a strong alternative language for the JVM particularly for mobile where it was buoyed by Google’s official blessing of it as a language for Android development at Google IO.
- On InfoQ we also saw a big surge in interest around .NET linked to .NET Core 2, and at both InfoQ and at QCon San Fransisco we also saw an upsurge in interest around organizational culture with one of the culture tracks (the Whole Engineer) moving to one of the larger rooms.
- We started to see Quantum computers emerging from the labs, with IBM making a 16 Qbit quantum processor available via their cloud for developers to play with, and the corresponding library available for Python on Github,
- Another major trend from the year was the availability of machine learning libraries for software developers to build and train models
