LadyJava sings about Java and make it look cool - but is Oracle still flavor of the month with Javaistas? Probably not. See the music video and have a few minutes of fun.
On the day that Oracle showed its intent (Oracle sues Google for Android Java use ) to make money out of Java in a way that might not endear them to the majority of Java users, let alone Android users, we have a new music video and song promoting JavaZone. It is basically a hymn to the joys of Java and JavaZone featurning "Lady Java". (Scroll down to view the video.)
But my guess is that they might want to change the first line
"I wanna program like they do at Oracle"
to something a little more critical and less aspirational.
I can suggest an angle for their next video which casts Oracle as Darthvader or the Java Antichrist or....
One shows a brain-dead corporate attitude to its clients and the other a more subtle understanding of its partners in crime and huge creativity. I've personally decided not to attend JavaOne as a protest - now if I can only work out where JavaZone is actually held ... where did I put Google Earth?
Anyway back to the music video - it's fun and the lyrics are amusing and its almost, but not quite entirely, suitable for work viewing.
