"Java technology has forever changed the way we work with and think about computers and networks," said David Fisco, editor-in-chief of the Java Report. "Our goal is to ensure that the vast community of developers, content providers and users - from programmers and Web designers to corporate managers and hobbyists - can take advantage of this incredibly pervasive technology by providing them with the most up-to-date information about Java delivered by the experts in the field."
The premier issue of Java Report, a bi-monthly magazine, is scheduled to reach newstands on March 1, 1996, and will include articles by Arthur van Hoff, Sun Microsystems Senior Staff Engineer and author of the Java compiler, as well as Steve Baldwin, Producer for Technology at Time Inc.'s New Media unit.
The first issue will also include product reviews of Symantec's Cafe and Natural Intelligence's Roaster.
At the same time, SIGS announced the launch of the 1996 International Java Developers Conference to be held May 13-15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in New York City. Leading off the event will be Grady Booch, Chief Scientist at Rational Software Inc., creator of the Booch Method, and one of the preeminent spokesmen for and about object technology in the world today. In addition to hearing about the latest advances in Java technology, attendees will learn how to create dynamic applications and Java and further hone their programming skills under the tutelage of the leading practitioners from the Java community.
"The Java Report and the Java Developers Conference together provide a comprehensive information source for the hottest technology today," according to Rick Friedman, President, CEO and Founder of SIGS Publications and Conferences. "Supplying the information-hungry Java market is our objective, and we believe SIGS -- with its background in producing the leading magazines and conferences for software developers -- is the only company today that has the proven resources to properly serve the Java market."
