Who creates the Java Newsletter?

Me. Steve McLeod, a devout Java developer since the days of Java 1.1.8. That's pre-Swing, pre-Java EE, pre-Eclipse. I've worked on Java projects in multiple countries, for household names and for small companies. I've created commercial Java desktop apps, and Java web applications. I've followed Java as it transformed from a language mostly aimed at browser-based applets to the king of server applications.
