Code Hard! (with Java)

In the cubicles representin’ for my JAVA homies… 
In by nine, out when the deadlines are met, check it. 

We code hard in these cubicles 
My style’s nerd-chic, I’m a programmin’ freak 
We code hard in these cubicles 
Only two hours to your deadline? Don’t sweat my technique. 

Sippin’ morning coffee with that JAVA swirl.  
Born to code; my first words were “Hello World”  
Since 95, been JAVA codin’ stayin’ proud 
Started on floppy disks, now we take it to the cloud.      

On my desktop, JAVA’s what’s bobbin’ and weavin’ 
We got another winning app before I get to OddEven. 
Blazin’ code like a forest fire, climbin’ a tree 
Setting standards like I Triple E…. 

Boot it on up, I use the force like Luke, 
Got so much love for my homeboy Duke. 
GNU Public Licensed, it’s open source, 
Stop by my desk when you need a crash course 

Written once and my script runs anywhere, 
Straight thuggin’, mean muggin’ in my Aeron chair. 
All the best lines of code, you know I wrote ‘em 
I’ll run you out of town on your dial-up modem. 

We code hard in these cubicles 
Me and my crew code hyphy hardcore     
We code hard in these cubicles 
It’s been more than 10 years since I’ve seen the 404. 

Inheriting a project can make me go beeee-serk 
Ain’t got four hours to transfer their Framework.  
The cleaners killed the lights, Man, that ain’t nice, 
Gonna knock this program out, just like Kimbo Slice 

I program all night, just like a champ, 
Look alive under this IKEA lamp. 
I code HARDER in the midnight hour,  
E7 on the vending machine fuels my power. 

Ps3 to Smartphones, our code use never ends, 
JAVA’s there when I beat you in “Words with Friends”. 
My developing skills are so fresh please discuss, 
You better step your game up on that C++. 

We know better than to use Dot N-E-T, 
Even Dan Brown can’t code as hard as me. 
You know JAVA’s gettin’ bigger, that’s a promise not a threat, 
Let me code it on your brain  

so you’ll never forget. 

We code hard in these cubicles, 
it’s the core component…of what we implement. 
We code hard in these cubicles, 
Straight to your JAVA Runtime Environment. 

We code hard in these cubicles, 
Keep the syntax light and the algorithm tight. 
We code hard in these cubicles, 
Gotta use JAVA if it’s gonna run right.       

We code hard in these cubicles 
JAVA keeps adapting, you know it’s built to last. 
We code hard in these cubicles, 
Robust and secure, so our swag’s on blast 

and have fun!


It's an anti Java campaign?

That's a pattern of life?

Who wants?

I actually like that - it is a funny video. Kudos to Oracle doing that.

Don't take it too seriously :-)

Zedshaw said java code was shit. Deploying ruby in the cloud has never been easy, with java it's just a jar.

then I would like to challenge Zed Shaw to deliver a session with me at the next JavaOne to build a real world application with monitoring, messaging etc. in 1 h.

I would use Java - he whatever he like :-)

Let the attendees decide how much more elegant and nicer ruby code really is.

Do you like the suggestion? Bashing is simple - constructive feedback a bit harder :-).

thanks for your comment!,

Implement JAVA code which takes 2 dimensional integer array as input and prints out heaviest island.
