For a long time, the cloud computing company baited Java Developers by offering an SDK that would make access to its AWS platform easier. Amazon Web Services has beautifully set up another lure for the Java Programmers to join its workforce. James Gosling, the father of Java, announced to join Amazon Web Services after bidding farewell to Liquid Robotics.
He revealed the details in his recent Facebook post where he stated, “It’s time for a change. I’m leaving Boeing Defense (nee Liquid Robotics), with many fond memories. Today I start a new Adventure at Amazon Web Services.”

The maestro who created one of the world’s most popular programming languages, Java, is now a “distinguished engineer” at AWS. The popular programming language is used for Web Development, Android mobile applications, and business software. Gosling put his blood and sweat for the development of Java since the early 1990s while he was working at Sun Microsystems. From an ordinary engineer to chief technology officer, the legendary techie continued the development until the company was bought by Oracle in 2009 in a deal worth at $7.4 billion.

Gosling left the company a year later after the acquisition was completed due to his role being reduced as that of an evangelist. He joined and worked at Google for six months after which he moved to Liquid Robotics as a Chief Software Architect. Liquid Robotics is best known for Wave Glider and ocean data services provider, both of them developed by James Gosling.
It is not the first time that AWS wants Java Developers to join its team. However, the recent hiring would certainly set a platform for the talented Java Programmers to join its cloud computing division.

Amazon Web Services offers developers various methods to run Java applications on its platform. This includes automated deployment using its Elastic Beanstalk provisioning tool and single-click deployment from within the Eclipse IDE.
Analysts believe that Gosling’s extensive experience and expertise in Java and cloud data processing will make him irreplaceable at Amazon Web Services. However, a better approach for him would have been to join Amazon.com, the parent company, instead of AWS.
Amazon expects to use the long experience of Gosling to get closer to its dream; automating the global supply chain through drone deliveries.
