Max Rydahl Andersen is the tooling architect at JBoss by Red Hat.
In the early days he worked on Hibernate Core even before it became part of JBoss, and over time he have been involved in alot of projects at JBoss, mainly focused on the tooling/developer aspects.
He gets to touch upon almost every technology inside JBoss as they need tooling. It's given him a unique viewpoint of being an actual user of the technology - feeling both the pains and joys of a user.
Max have been involved in Ceylon from the early days and tried to keep up with the evolving specifications. Gives feedback and provide input in directions of the tooling and as such is now trying to make Ceylon available from Eclipse.
I had the chance to get to sit down with Jason Greene, Emanuel Muckenhuber and their manager Bruno Georges while they were having an JBoss Application Server team meeting in our Neuchatel offices.
We talked about how things changed since our last podcast about AS 7.0 (Episode 15) and from that got to cover what is new and great in AS 7.1 and what the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 Beta have to offer.
At Devoxx we were preparing for having an interview with Lincoln Baxter III about Forge, tweeted it out and JBoss Community member Paul Bakker came by and joined in on the fun and Episode 23 was the result.
In this episode we first cover news around OpenShift, Immutant, JUDCon India and Devoxx following with an interview with Lincoln and Paul about Forge.
We invited Marek Goldmann and Galder Zamerreno on to the stage for live podcast recorded at JUDCon London.
In this informal panel we cover the various approaches different languages are being used, supported, extended and even created in and around JBoss.org.
The sound is in areas not perfect because of the live scene, but the talks and topics comes out well so hope you will enjoy it :)
Michael Neale, Andrew L. Rubinger and I talking about what happened at JavaOne around JBoss technology.
Topics covers JCP.next, JavaEE Rocks, Web Profile, TomEE, Duke Choice Awards, Arquillian, Netty, Jenkins, AS 7, OpenShift, CloudBees, JUDCon and how JBoss team used Air B&B to get some sleep.

For this 20th anniversary of the podcast we have Mark Proctor and Michael Anstis from the Drools team on to talk about the recently released Drools 5.2.
We cover the latest news from JBoss Community and then get to talk about Drools history, what a rules engine is good for and Mark Proctor gets to answer to Mike Brock's
allegations from the last episode.
This time we are doing a very special episode of the Asylum podcast.
To understand the podcast it is good to have seen the video of the keynote.
It gives a rare view behind the scenes of how the team behind the JBoss World 2011 Keynote created and made the whole demo work.
Emmanuel and I recorded the podcast in his hotel room in Boston during JBoss World together with Manik Surtani, Jay Balunas, Jason Greene, Mike Brock and Sanne Grinovero.
It's filled with a lot of jokes and laughter and in between a lot of good technical content about the keynote and even some glimpses into how it is to be a developer in and at JBoss/Red Hat.
Don't forget to view the video of the keynote first :)
A few weeks ago at JUDCon Emmanuel and I sat down and talked with Mark Little during a live recording of an Asylum podcast.
Mark Little got to talk about JBoss Everywhere, AS 7, Ceylon, the JCP and its JSRs, JBoss Development methodology, beers and why transactions matters.
Thanks to all from the live JUDCon audience and those who asked question via @jbossasylum Twitter account to provide input to our questions.
If you haven't yet signed up for JUDCon now is time to do it. Especially since Emmanuel Bernard and I will be doing a live recording at the event with Mark Little, The Technical Head Honcho of JBoss honcho as our special guest.
If you got questions you would like him to answer, let us know in the comments and we'll do what we can to get him to answer them.
Another option is that you get a ticket for JUDCon and shout it to us during the recording.
Besides the opportunity to heckle us there is a lot of great presentations and hacking planned for two days by both JBoss employees and external contributors.
See you there!
Next week I'll be doing a talk at Miracle Open World in Billund, Denmark called See Context & Dependency Injection from Java EE 6 in Action.
Will be double fun since I'll be able to go and build lego's afterwards ;)
