February OJUG ::: Programming Platform Growth: Table Stakes or Deal Makes?

Hello Java Enthusiasts! 

You're in for a treat! We have a great presentation coming up, Here are the details.

Programming Platform Growth: Table Stakes or Deal Makes?
This talk draws from Ed's 25 years of professional programming
experience, spanning many languages, operating systems, and platforms,
to survey what it takes to make a programming language platform
successful in terms of widespread use. Ed will look at Java, Python,
Node, Go, and Swift and evaluate the ingredients that brought each one
its own form of success. Finally, Ed will draw some lessons that apply
to anyone trying to grow their computing platform, because, at some
level, we are all in the platform business.

## Purpose of the Talk

IT practitioners are often faced with platform selection choices when
building solutions for their customers. The set of available choices is
always subject to lots of churn and chaos. This talk looks at what
separates successful platforms from others in terms of how each one
deals with technical and non-technical concerns.

## Target Audience

* Architect level developers who are faced with technology selection choices.

* Developers who want the platforms they are building to be successful.

## Audience Takeaway

Success is never an accident, and when it comes to programming platforms
thare are many checkbox-type things your platform must have to ensure
success. But implementing these things requires lots of grit,
determination, and polish.
