Warning: Community social engagement is highly addictive and can cause one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty keeping track of your thousands of “followers” and “friends”
  • More “free stuff” than you can store in your garage
  • Humbling run-ins with language designers, JVM gurus, and framework authors Unsolicited, crazy job offers! [e.g. Snorkeling in the Pacific to test your steering algorithm]

Come learn how the Java Community ticks from someone who has gone from Java coder to Java Champion and now is a humble Java Community Servant.
