Our Most Popular Tech Articles of 2011

Guest Author

You can stop holding your breath now. We have determined the Top 20 (meaning: most popular) Tech Articles Published by OTN in 2011!

What conclusions can we draw from this list? Well, for one: Traditionally, we publish a "Top 10" list at the end of the calendar year. But in 2011, there were so many popular articles published that this ceiling was too limiting.

Other conclusions:

  • Java developers love reading articles. Total domination of the page view numbers this year.
  • Adam Bien is not only a Java Champion, but a Page Views Champion as well. Neither Brittany Spears nor George Clooney would have been more helpful to us in that department.
  • You all seem fairly curious about Java 7, Java EE, and JavaFX.
  • If you have your own observations, let's see them in comments.

 Without further delay, here's the list:

  1. Fork and Join: Java Can Excel at Painless Parallel Programming Too! (Julien Ponge)
  2. Taking Your First Steps with Oracle Solaris 11 (Brian Leonard & Glynn Foster)
