19:00 - Modern Java: Change is the Only Constant / Mark Reinhold
"In the past year, we changed Java in three ways that we never have before: We modularized the platform, we removed some components, and we accelerated the pace of new releases. These changes aim to keep Java vibrant in an ever-changing world of competing platforms and new styles of application deployment, whether to the cloud or to app stores. They are disruptive, but they’re not as scary as you may think, and many developers have already adjusted to them."

21:00 - Ask the Java Architects / Brian Goetz / Mark Reinhold
As one of the most pervasive technologies of our lifetime, Java continues to innovate the application world around us. Through continued modernization Java offers developers a contemporary language and platform to create the next generation of rich, scalable, and secure enterprise applications. And as the technology landscape changes around us, often at an ever-increasing pace, Java is primed to offer developers continued uniqueness to address new opportunities.
In this open Q&A session, come ask about why Java is the way it is, or where it is going? Bring your favourite questions about the Java Platform and the Java Development Kit past, present, or future to Brian and Mark, key architects from Oracle's Java team.
