E2E: Erik Meijer and Jeroen Frijters - IKVM.NET (Java VM implemented in .NET)

Sign in to queue

Description

At Lang.NEXT 2012, several conversations happened in the "social room", which was right next to the room where sessions took place. Our dear friend, Erik Meijer, led many interesting conversations, some of which we are fortunate enough to have caught on camera for C9.

Here, Erik interviews fellow Dutchman Jeroen Frijters, the creator and maintainer of IKVM.NET. See Jeroens' Lang.NEXT 2012 IKVM.NET presentation.

IKVM.NET is an implementation of Java for Mono and the Microsoft .NET Framework. It contains a Java Virtual Machine implemented in .NET, a .NET implementation of the Java class libraries, tools that enable Java and .NET interoperability.

Tune in.

Thank you Erik and Jeroen for the excellent conversation.

    The guy is called Jeroen, not Jeroens, presumably because there's only one of him.
