“What’s Wrong With Java” as OpenOffice Document

Since my presentation at the Jazoon is only available as a PDF (and it looks horrible, too), I’ve uploaded the source OpenOffice presentation to my own website. It includes all the additional comments which are missing in the PDF. You can find it here.

For all those who couldn’t attend my talk: This document summarizes a few weaknesses of Java which are solved in Python and Groovy and why I think that Java is now at it’s peak. From now on, it’s going down. Not overnight, of course, and there is no need to rush into any kind of action. But in ten years from now, Java will be where C is today: Something you don’t want to build your career on (that’s Java, the language, not Java, the VM).
