Georges Saab, Vice President, Java Platform Group at Oracle
Georges Saab is the Chair of the OpenJDK governing board, and Vice President of Development for the Java Platform Group at Oracle which defines and implements the Java Language, Library, and the Java Virtual Machine.
Georges is a 30+ year veteran of programming language and platform development. His work with the Java platform began as a developer of Java Standard Edition at JavaSoft and Sun Microsystems, where he was a founder of the Swing group and Java Web Start, and continued as he ran development of the JRockit JVM for many years at BEA Systems. He has been leading the Java Platform Group over the last
decade from Java SE 7 onwards through some of the most fundamental changes in its ongoing evolution.
In this meetup, Georges will provide insight into how the developers of Java think about its evolution, and cover some of the exciting projects that are underway to ensure it remains relevant for years to come.
