Most projects that updated past Java 8 decided to stick to the LTS release 11. The new cadence created the illusion of not much happening after that, but nothing could be further from the truth - with new language features like switch expressions, text blocks, records, and sealed classes, Java is moving faster than ever.
In this talk, we'll take a simple Java 11 code base, update it to 16, and refactor it to use the new language features and APIs. You'll be surprised how much the code changes!
I also embedded them below. If they're focussed, you can navigate with arrow keys or swipes (they're two-dimensional, with chapters on the horizontal axis and chapter content layed out vertically). Use Page Up/Down for linearized order and ? for more shortcuts.
Here's a good recording of the talk. I hope you'll like it.
In the coming months, I'll present this talk at Developer Week '21 and JUG Switzerland. If you're there as well, I'd love to meet you - I'm always up for a chat. 😁 Just flag me down when you see me. (This includes chat rooms.)
I gave this talk a few times before. See below for links to slides (as they were at that very event), videos, and other information.
