James Gosling will revisit the topic of his 1997 article entitled "The feel of Java" that was published in Computer, the flagship magazine of the IEEE Computer Society. This topic is particularly relevant in the context of the vigorous debate currently surrounding the various proposals for adding closures to the Java Language.
Although this is a free event, we will be limiting attendance to a maximum of 150 attendees. Once registration reaches this limit, we will be closing registration. There will be no wait list.
