Starting in 2005, Pratik became involved with the Atlanta Java User’s Group (AJUG), and later became a board member. His work in bringing the world’s experts on Java technology to Atlanta have helped make DevNexus one of the largest community run Java centric conferences in the world. Around the same time, he started to share his deep knowledge of Java and the JVM to developers in the USA and around the world. He is a frequent speaker at the No Fluff Just Stuff tour and other Java-centric conferences. He also is the primary organizer of DevNexusJr, a venture that is part of AJUG to bring the joy of programming to the next generation of developers. Follow him at @prpatel

Welcome to the March/April issue of Java Magazine in which we dig into the inner workings of Java and the JVM. This issue is pure nerd-stim: bits and bytes have never been as much fun as exploring how the JVM manages garbage collectors and code caches. All good developers are mindful of how their code executes, but due to constant advances in the language and the JVM, knowing what's going on behind the scenes is not always easy.
The rest of the issue shows off Golo, a new JVM language; better persistence in Java EE; and how enums work in Java--all topped off by our famous language quiz, our no-holds-barred book review, and my editorial, which discusses a new proposal by the Java team to add greater type inference to the language. Enjoy!

Marcus Lagergren has been involved with the Java platform since the alpha versions. He worked at Appeal Virtual Machines, a performance-oriented start-up offering alternatives to byte code interpretation, slow-running thread implementations and non-native code. As one of the principal architects of the JRockit JVM, Marcus helped make sure that Java became a good alternative to writing programs in native languages.
Marcus contributed to virtual implementations of Java on hypervisors, when virtualization was still in its infancy, and demonstrated with the JRockit VE project that virtual solutions are good alternatives to physical platforms.
Marcus worked as a member of the Java language team implementing Java 8. He worked on improving support for dynamic languages on the JVM. Being a performance engineer at heart, Marcus demonstrated that dynamic languages, thanks to invokedynamic, achieve similar performance on the JVM compared to languages with a static type system.
