What is Central?

"Central", "Maven Central", "The Central Repository". You'll here these terms a lot when discussing Java open source-based development. At Sonatype, we often take it for granted that everyone knows what we mean when we say "Central". We know that's not true, so we've put together this short video overview of Central and what it means to the Java community. Enjoy.
