If you haven’t watched a talk on language stewardship and evolution in a while – I would highly recommend this one.

Brian Goetz, Oracle’s Java Language Architect, makes a brilliant, witty, and passionate case for pragmatic evolution of programming languages and provides compelling reasons why Java not only remains relevant as the top programming language and platform of choice but – even after 20 years – continues to deliver innovation that matters to the entire IT software ecosystem, including 9 million Java developers and those building software with alternate languages on top of the Java runtime.

Cheers,
