JCP Survey!

The London Java Community (LJC), which is an Executive Committee member of the Java Community Process (JCP), is asking Java developers to participate in a JCP survey titled "What should the JCP be doing?

The JCP is the mechanism that decides on future standards related to Java technology. Those standards give users like you a choice of technologies to develop with and more independence from vendor solutions.  

The JCP cares about community feedback and has successfully encouraged community participation using transparent tracking processes. Take the survey, your feedback matters.

Get started with Java!

Every year, the Java platform is growing with new features for enterprise, web, embedded and mobile application and developers. To help beginners navigate the platform and get started with Java technologies, new learning resources are available on the New to Java website. Developers will write a "Hello World" application, test their Java knowledge,  create user interfaces with JavaFX, and build enterprise applications with Java EE, desktop applications with Java SE or applications for mobile and embedded devices.  

Being up to date about current trends and networking with other developers are also critical for a career in programming. Developers can connect with top leaders in the community at conferences and community networks such as local user groups. They have the chance to contribute to open-source projects such as OpenJDK and Adopt-a-JSR to name just two.

Finally, parents and educators teaching programming to children will find software tools for young developers. They are free downloadable development tools with easy to use interfaces for young students. And Minecraft is so popular! Java technologist Daniel Green walks us through Minecraft mods with Java.
