Azul Deputy CTO Simon Ritter will be speaking at this event about Project Jigsaw in JDK 9…

Project Jigsaw will bring modularity to the Java platform; something that will enable better security, performance and flexibility for deployment of applications. This talk will look at the fundamentals of how modularity in Java will work. Developers will need to understand that these changes go significantly further than just separating the standard class libraries into a number of discrete units.

Simon will explain the impact project Jigsaw will have on developers in terms of building their applications, as well as helping them to understand how things like encapsulation of private APIs, which have up until now been visible, will change in JDK 9.

Simon Ritter (@speakJava) is a designated Java Champion and formerly the head of Java Technology Evangelism at Oracle.  Simon has been involved in promoting Java since the release of the first official JDK when he joined Sun Microsystems in February 1996.  Simon joined the Azul team in 2015.

This event will be held from 7 to 9pm at the University of Texas J.J. Pickle Research Campus at 10100 Burnet Road in Austin.  The specific campus location is the Li’l Tex Auditorium in the Commons Building (#137).  Pizza will be served at 6:30pm.

We look forward to seeing you there!
