Episode 30. I always thought Generics were as good as brand name Erasers (Java Generics part 1)

Hi there! Finally back on a (hopefully) standard schedule. I have been moving a house with three kids, two cats, one wife, one dog, and one grandma (they are heavy!, just kidding!) and just found the box with the podcast equipment!

we hit the ground running with Generics. What are the benefits (and potential pitfalls) of Generics? Why do we even need them at all? The syntax looks pretty confusing, but with some Jedi Mind tricks one can actually start seeing how they work. If you use Generics (Almost everyone does :)) you should take a listen!

Ah! and if you are going to JavaOne check my t-shirt on the previous post
