January 15, 2021 | Virtual Event
On January 15 Dawson College will be hosting its free one-day online software conference, bringing speakers together from around the world, covering a range of topics concerning software development. The event is sponsored by Azul.
Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter will present ‘Why New Java is Not the New COBOL’. In this session he’ll explore some of the new features that have been introduced in Java – at a faster pace than at any time in its 25-year history. He’ll review how best to use them (as well as advice on when not to use them). Features covered will include local variable type inference, switch expressions, text blocks, records, pattern matching for instanceof, and sealed classes and changes to records.
Geertjan Wielenga, Azul’s Senior Director of Open Source Projects, will present about foojay.io, a place for friends of OpenJDK, and the new one-stop-shop for all things Java. Learn what foojay is all about, and how you can get involved too.
