Honored to be a Java EE Guardian!

I am happy to announce that my request to join the Java EE Guardians was recently accepted! I first learned about the Java EE Guardians almost two years ago while writing my InfoQ news piece about Oracle's sudden slowdown in the development of Java EE 8 and the response by the Java community. It was during that time the Java EE Guardians were born. Reza Rahman , former Oracle evangelist and now senior architect at CapTech Consulting, led the creation of the Java EE Guardians. I was impressed with their charter and have followed along with their activities ever since. I am honored to be part of a membership that includes notable members such as the father of Java, James Gosling, along with JUG leaders, JCP experts, spec leads, bloggers, authors, and speakers. All you need is a passion for Java EE, now Jakarta EE , and be active in the community. If you have such a passion for Jakarta EE and interested in membership, please send an e-mail to their Google Group .
