Java 17 Is Here!

In this talk, I introduce the Java language features, new/updated APIs, and new JVM capabilities that recent Java releases brought to the ecosystem

Some projects are still on Java 8, many on 11 and yet, Java 17 is already out! Java's recent releases have a lot in stock - in this talk you'll learn about...

  • new language features like sealed types, pattern matching, records, switch expressions, and more
  • the additions to existing APIs, like Stream and Optional
  • other niceties like multi-release JARs and performance improvements

After this talk you will be prepared to get started with Java 17.


Here's the current version of the slides.

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.
