The Evolution of Java and the Developer Community by Heather VanCura
The Java Community Process (JCP) program celebrated twenty years of Java standards development in 2019. The JCP, Program is the process by which the international Java community standardizes and ratifies the specifications for Java technologies. The JCP ensures high-quality specifications are developed using an inclusive, consensus-based approach. Read more about the JCP.
Heather's session will explore how Java development has been brought into the open over the past decade. Several Java developer efforts have brought open source development processes and new levels of transparency and participation into their communities.
Learn about the latest Java innovations to the Java SE Platform – Java SE 11, 12, 13 and beyond.
Since the initiation of efforts to expand the developer participation in the Java community, Java standards development is more open that it ever has been.
