Azul’s Deputy CTO Simon Ritter will present at this event. The title of his talk is ‘From JDK 9 to 12 and Beyond: Delivering New Features in the JDK’. In this session he’ll take a look at the rapid evolution of the Java platform with the introduction of new features in each of the recent releases: • JDK 9: Java Platform Module System • JDK 10: Local variable type inference • JDK 11: JDK Flight Recorder • JDK 12: Switch expressions. He’ll also cover many of the smaller features that will make your life as a developer easier. What might JDK 13 and 14 include? To answer that question, he’ll explore some of the longer-term plans for Java, such as project Amber, Loom and Valhalla.
