Hi everyone!

This Thursday, November 2nd, at 9:00am PST will be the next Community Meeting on Zoom (https://washington.zoom.us/j/92831331326).

We will be hearing about the history and future of Java numerics from the man himself, the Floating-Point Czar from Oracle, Joseph D. Darcy.

Come hear an overview of numeric support of the Java platform, an on-going story ranging over more than a quarter century and spanning standards, specifications, virtual machines, libraries, and compilers, including resolving details as small as 2^-1074. The talk does not assume audience members will already be familiar with the details of the Java platform; attendees are welcome to ask questions about such details.

 Joe has been a key part of floating point support and Java since the Sun days, including math libraries, hexadecimal literals, strictfp, Project Coin, and platform support. He was also an interim editor of IEE-754 2008.

Be sure to make time to join us in hearing Joe detail the storied past, and promising future, of floating point in Java.

Thank you,
Ian Biggs
