19:00 - Keeping Up with Java
It seems like keeping up to date with Java nowadays is an enormous task. Gone is the era of big, delayed Java releases that span 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 11 is already available.
Sander will give explain what's new in Java since Java 8. He'll give an overview of the module system (Java 9), the local-variable type inference feature (Java 10) and the new HttpClient API (Java 11).
It's time to embrace the newfound agility of the Java platform! Expect lots of advice on how to get from Java 8 to Java 11.
20:30 - Java Modularity: the Year After
In September 2017 the long-awaited release of Java 9 gave us a new module system in Java. It also kick-started the release-train of frequent Java releases, with Java 11 being the first long-term supported Java version poised to take modules into the mainstream. So what has happened since the introduction of the module system?
Sander's talk will provide you with an overview adoption of modules in open-source libraries, IDEs, build tools, and so on. It will also feature tools that have emerged to make working with modules easier.
Expect an honest overview of the current state of modules in Java, with lots of demos to show what's possible. After this talk you can start developing your own modular Java application without hesitation!
Sander is a Fellow at Luminis in The Netherlands, where he crafts modular and scalable software, most often on the JVM, but with a touch of TypeScript when needed.
He also is a Java Champion and author of the O'Reilly book 'Java 9 Modularity' (see javamodularity.com).
As an avid conference speaker, Sander loves sharing knowledge, also through his blog at branchandbound.net and as Pluralsight instructor.
