Learning about software shouldn't feel like an extended vision test. Hey, I'll be the first to tell you that developerWorks has some of the best articles and tutorials on software development around (that is my job). But when it comes to reading lengthy, code-heavy prose, even the most enthusiastic techy can get bleary-eyed. So this week, we're launching a new Java technology podcast series that takes you deep into a range of technical topics but leaves out all the fine print. Relax your corneas and listen as host Andy Glover engages with a new subject expert each week: This round, Matthew McCullough talks about Git; next week, Andy chats up Clojure guru Stuart Halloway -- and there are plenty more in the works.
And when your eyes are ready for more text, we've got a super new batch of features ready to go (see below). We also promise never to give you the dreaded puff-of-air glaucoma test.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
