Hi All

Sorry for the late notice, but between the Google ski trip and the Sun Developer Council meeting, we haven't had the time to put together an episode for this week. Please bear with us, we will be back next week and have a couple of good interviews coming up as well.

As promised, here are the final details for tonight's (Jan 22nd, 2007) 100th episode which will be recorded live in front of a studio audience.

We will be recording at around 6.30pm, but it is recommended that you try and get to the meeting point by 6.15 - latecomers will find it hard to get into the complex.

This google maps link shows all of the important spots. Recommended parking location is off of Charleston Road (along the bottom of this picture). Hopefully you will find some spaces - at 6.15pm the car park should be clearing out a bit.

The place to meet is in between buildings 42 and 43 - shown in the top left of the maps link. A lady called Liz will be there to meet you and escort you in.

We are happy to announce that there will be complimentary refreshments, including beer, at this event :-). Learning from last time we didn't want to promise anything we couldn't deliver, so we left the announcement until the last minute.

Hope to see you there...

Also we have a special event coming up - our 100th episode which will be recorded live in front of an audience at the Googleplex in Mountain View. This event is open to the public and will take place at 6.30pm on January 22nd 2007 in Tech Talk 42 (in Building 42). Please let us know through the Java Posse Google group if you are planning on attending so that we can get a head count. This is of course a free event. Keep an eye on http://javaposse.com or the Google group for more details.

This is building 42 in the Googleplex - Building 42 is shown in the center of the map. At 6ish you should find the parking is clearing out so it should not be hard to find a space, although there is some building work taking place to install solar panels.

JRuby

We were lucky enough to get an interview with Charles Oliver Nutter and Thomas Enebo all about JRuby as they flew into town for a visit to Sun HQ
