Java Road Trip – Where have all our heroes gone?

I got an email from Oracle about the Java Road Trip. Looking over the website I wasn’t immediately excited to attend the event here in Denver. But even more than that, I looked at the profiles for the speakers and the staff and all I can say is, “Where have all our heroes gone?”

I didn’t recognize a single name. Maybe I just don’t get out much anymore. Or maybe Sun did a piss poor job of promoting their employees and rock-stars. Or maybe they shackled them to their desks or something. Who knows?

Hopefully Oracle and fix some of that and help me recognize the name “Tony Printezis” and be excited that he’s working on the JVM.
