Tonight was a memorable evening at the Atlanta Java Users Group. James Gosling from Sun Microsystems was there. It was basically a 2-hour question and answer session, with no particular structure or agenda. Obviously, when the guy who initially created the programming language upon which the user group is based shows up, there is neither a lack of attendance nor a dearth of questions.
It was pretty fascinating to hear some of the ways that Java is being used. The work on the Real-Time for Java specification sounds promising, especially to anyone with an awareness of that market's untapped potential.
AJUG is allegedly going to post the video of the event somehow. I am not sure how that will be accomplished, but those interested might browse over to the AJUG site to see if it's there. James' weblog is usually a fun read.
