Keeping Up with Java


It seems like keeping up with Java nowadays is an enormous task. Gone is the era of big, delayed Java releases that take many years. We’re now getting a new major release every 6 months. What’s up with that? You’re probably still developing on Java 8, even though Java 12 is already available.

Join this session to get an overview of what’s new in Java since Java 8. We’ll give an overview of the module system and other new features in Java 9, the local-variable type inference feature (var in Java 10), and the new HttpClient API (Java 11). Expect lots of advice on how to get from Java 8 to Java 11 and beyond. It’s time to embrace the newfound agility of the Java platform!

What will the audience learn from this talk?
How (and why) you should move from the ubiquitous but old Java 8 to Java 11 and beyond.

Does it feature code examples and/or live coding?
