Sun Microsystems hosted a programming summit yesterday with many big names in programming in attendance. Tim Bray has a good write-up about the day, the process putting together the event, and some of the outcomes.

Good to see so many major coders in one spot to share ideas. Tim predicts “that as time goes by, more and more of the code written in the Java ecosystem won’t be in Java. This is a good thing.”
