Danny and the Three Platforms
By dannycoward on Feb 02, 2006
Hello World !
Someone once described their programming style to me as 'every program is an edited version of Hello World' (hi Tim). Ah, but what editing.
I realised this morning that I am the Goldilocks of Java Platforms, having worked on the J2EE platform, the J2ME platform and now starting in on the J2SE platform. Except I'm not so fickle. Or blond.
If you know me already, you may remember me from the heady early days of J2EE while we were still struggling through the three letter acronyms, not realising how much better four can be. Or perhaps from one of the hats I wore in the J2ME platform team, where I think even my willingness and ability to discard the shackles of job function were stretched close to the limit. Perhaps you knew that I most recently spent some quality time with myself and a small selection of other popular langauges to see how the other half live. More on that soon, I promise, but can I just say that sometimes we all need to log out, ring off, close the door and do something fun ?
But now I've found the J2SE platform, I think its going to be just right ;)
