In the spirit of the recent State of the Union address, Ted Neward will present a brief 'State of the Union: Java Edition' to describe what he sees going on in the Java world-and in the larger world of software development in general-and how it will affect those who are developing and running applications on the JVM. He'll then take questions from the audience on any loosely-related Java or JVM topic, until the audience runs out of questions, the meeting runs out of time, or the universe runs out of Diet Coke.
