Coming soon on JAXenter: videos from JAX London by Elliot Bentley.
From the post:
Can you believe it’s only been two weeks since JAX London? We’re already planning for the next one at JAX Towers (yes, really).
Yet if you’re already getting nostalgic, never fear – JAXenter is on hand to help you relive those glorious yet fleeting days, and give a taste of what you may have missed.
For a start, we’ve got videos of almost every session in the main room, including keynotes from Doug Cutting, Patrick Debois, Steve Poole and Martijn Verburg & Kirk Pepperdine, which we’ll be releasing gradually onto the site over the coming weeks. Slides for the rest of JAX London’s sessions are already freely available on SlideShare.
Pepperdine and Verburg, “Java and the Machine,” remark:
There’s no such thing as a process as far as the hardware is concerned.
A riff I need to steal to say:
There’s no such thing as semantics as far as the hardware is concerned.
We attribute semantics to data for input, we attribute semantics to processing of data by hardware, we attribute semantics to computational results.
I didn’t see a place for hardware in that statement. Do you?
