Or if you would like, you can treat me a beer!
Welcome to Java Public House, the podcast (and blog) dedicated to the hard working Java professional!
This blog was created to help those of us who have to work with Java day in and day out, and its mission is simple, is a podcast created by a developer for developers. You can think of it as "free" training seminars in downloadable form. We will cover Java related topics (such as multithreading, Swing, JavaFx) and gear it towards understanding these topics a little bit better, and while there are a tons of sites out there that describe good things about Java, we tried to be a little different.
This podcast talks about how to program in Java; not your tipical system.out.println("Hello world"), but more like real issues, such as O/R setups, threading, getting certain components on the screen or troubleshooting tips and tricks in general. The format is as a podcast so that you can subscribe to it, and then take it with you and listen to it on your way to work (or on your way home), and learn a little bit more (or reinforce what you knew) from it.
Within this podcast we are open to get questions from everyone, and the most popular then gets slotted for next week's topic (as easy as that!). So, let's learn together, and have fun (and become better professionals!), a win win!
Who is JavaPubHouse?
Freddy GuimeOk, so my name is Freddy Guime, I have three kids, two cats and one wife. I have been working with Java for more than 10 years, have been awarded the title of Java Champion, and help run the Chicago Java Users Group.
As of now, I'm Software Technology Evangelist at Expedia Inc. Trying to find those performance bottlenecks is my passion and I'm always looking for ways of making the code better and getting other people to learn from my mistakes.
I have presented in conferences (JavaOne, DevNexus, CJUG) on topics ranging from Community Building, to Multithreading and Memory Leaks. I like to make my presentations fun, so now I bring my guitar to them.
