Stephan Colebourne has worked with Java since version 1.0, and contributed to open source software since 2000. My work includes Joda-Time, JSR 310 (Date and Time API) and Apache Jakarta Commons. I was elected a Java Champion in 2007.
Why were you involved with FCM?
Is there any parallel with whats happening with function handlers?
Method handlers caught alot of attention...
It could be a huge win having function pointers...
What about the closure syntax?
Could Google Collections benefit from it?
What's the status of JSR-310 / Joda time?
