James Gosling

Nov 17, 2010 · Mountain View, United States of America

GOOD NEWS: James Gosling is recovering nicely from his unplanned surgery in October. We received confirmation from James that he will be joining us in November to give the talk originally scheduled for last month.

James Gosling is best known as the father of the Java programming language. He spoke to our JUG members once before back in February of 2008 giving a talk on The Feel of Java.
