Event description

Description

The upcoming version of Java (Java 9) is in the tech press headlines at the moment, as the flagship feature has caused unprecedented controversy within the Java Community Process (the body that approves new Java standards). In this talk, Ben Evans (JCP Executive Committee member & Java Champion) will explain what the fuss is all about, how Java 9 compares to previous versions and explore some of the long-term roadmap for Java as well as how previous versions have evolved to lead us to this point, and discuss what it all means for the working Java programmer and the future of the ecosystem."
