We have another Java Champion visiting us in October. Edson Yanaga is Director of Developer Experience for Red Hat. In this double bill, Yanaga, as he is affectionately known the world over, will embark upon a live coding session before your very eyes with the supersonic subatomic Java, Quarkus, a Kubernetes Native Java stack tailored for GraalVM & OpenJDK HotSpot, crafted from the best of breed Java libraries and standards. Right!
This developer-only event takes place at 19:00 on Wednesday 23rd October Birmingham city centre.

18:30 - Coding That Sparks Joy With Quarkus
Does your heart beat faster when you’re developing your Java application? Does it spark joy when you’re coding?
If not, then it’s time to leave some old ways behind.
Join us on this live coding session and get familiar with Quarkus. You’ll learn to love how your old and new favorite APIs will start in a matter of milliseconds and consume tiny amounts of memory. Hot reload capabilities for development will give you instant sparks of joy!
20:00 - Revisiting Effective Java in 2019
Joshua Bloch just gifted us with the 3rd edition of "Effective Java", but almost 10 years have been past since the last edition. Now we have a whole generation of Java developers that could benefit from this knowledge - but lost the past wave. It's about time to revisit all of this wonderful content, and upgrade your skills to the latest versions of the Java platform.
Join us on this deep dive session to check what is the updated Effective Java, and even add some more tips not included in the book!
