WatersWorks Podcast 8: Geertjan Wielenga and the Evolution of Foojay, "A Place for Friends of OpenJDK"
Show Notes

Foojay.io is a community website for developers who use, target, and run their applications on Java and OpenJDK. It's been up and running since April of last year, and it's been evolving into a rich, well-designed, and essential resource. John spoke with Geertjan Wielenga, senior director of open-source projects at Java development tools and runtimes provider Azul, about Foojay. Wielenga is the author of "Developer, Advocate!: Conversations on turning a passion for talking about tech into a career," a former employee of Sun Microsystems (the mother of Java), and the guiding hand behind the project.
