About This Show
VoidStar Podcast is series where we talk to the top class achievers in tech and take a peek at the secrets to their excellence.
I have constantly wondered how top achievers in tech, especially, people who have proven track record of being excellent at say coding and developing huge open projects. Are they gifted people with extra-terrestrial abilities or are they mere mortals who share several drawbacks with the rest of us but do just enough things right, consistently. In early 2017, I set myself to start a podcast series where I would talk to top class achievers in tech and try to uncover any patterns in their habits, routines and approach. The interview format is an informal conversation with the guest for anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. If it’s much longer the episode is split into smaller chunks. My aim is to have a podcast that helps developers learn a new trick, be motivated to solve an important problem or simply do a bit more with your day. Hopefully, the show is as fun and exciting to listen to as it was for me. Please Subscribe.Read more »

VSP-003: How to Start Small and Win Big - with James Gosling, the Father of Java - Part I
Welcome to the [Void Star Podcast Series](http://www.mycpu.org/about-interviews). This episode contains my conversation with James Gosling, the Father of Java. James Gosling has made significant contributions in the field of Computer Science, while he is most famous for inventing the Java Programming Language, he has contributed immensely by building several tools, compilers, email clients, window managers and tons of other utilities. He has worked recently on 'Wave Glider', the autonomous ocean robots and now he's working on making Cloud Computing even better. In a sense, if there was something path-breaking happening in tech, James was around! What's his secret?
In this first part in two episode series, we talk about his early years as a student during which he may or may not have faked his age to get access to computers to practice programming, the true story behind the motivation for Java Language, his experiences programming the Ocean Robots, his take on A.I. and ramifications on our future.
