The Java Advent Calendar

The Java Advent Calendar is winter-festivities themed blog featuring (at least) one Java-related post per day between the 1st and 24th of December.

The concept is rooted in the tradition of the advent calendar – getting a small gift each day while waiting for Christmas – but it is not a religious endeavor. We want to give people who have something interesting to say related to Java an outlet and a motivation to do so (similar initiatives exist for other domains in IT).

The initiative was born in a split second and now we just crossed our half-way mark – we posted the 13th article. We cover a wide variety of topics from JMX trough computer vision and rounding of with Java sound. But this is not all! Stay tuned for a lot more interesting articles, including a pair of posts about the first two languages on the JVM (besides Java) which are still in use today (you will be able to win many bets with your friends with these two)!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who volunteered to post: without You this wouldn’t be possible! I would also like to thank the people and sites (like Java Code Geeks) who help promote the initiative: Thank You!

Finally I would like to ask for your support Dear Reader: if you like the idea, please spread the work. The posts are all CC-BY 3.0 licensed and you can share them freely as long as you specify its origin. We are present on most social networks, so please like, +1 and RT us. Also, if you have an idea for a post you would like to write, contact me, we might be able to squeeze it in!

Happy winter festivities everyone!
