With Java's switch to a six-month release schedule, the community needs to step up its game to stay up to date. Instead of having a year or more to prepare for a new release, it's a mere three months - we need to be better informed about what's going on to see changes coming before they're out.
- explains the details behind the new schedule and how to stay up to date
- discusses license and support of JVM distributions
- showcases Java 9 to 15 language features like
switchexpressions, and records
- shows the future of Java, brought by projects like Valhalla, Amber, and others
- looks at features of upcoming releases like pattern matching, value types, and fibers
Afterwards, you will not only know about the immediate future but also how to stay up to date without much effort.
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.
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.
