Ben Evans is a co-author for the upcoming “The Well-Grounded Java Developer (Covers Java 7)” for Manning Publications. The book is firmly aimed at the future direction of the Java language and platform with the open source nature of the OpenJDK as well as Ployglot languages on the JVM making the Java platform extremely compelling to work on as a FOSS developer.

Ben has been a professional developer and Open Source enthusiast since the late 90s. He has delivered world-class projects for banks, media companies and charities in that time, and currently works as a lead architect, principal engineer and in-house Java expert at one of the world’s leading financial institutions.
