Keeping Up With Java, a tech talk by Sander Mak


Event Details


SAVE YOUR SEAT NOW!

BRING A JAVA FRIEND

Share this event and bring along a Java friend during this Tech Talk on 05 September 2019.

Sharing knowledge brings us closer, becoming committed experts! So, we hope to meet you in Utrecht during the “after drinks & bites”.

LET’S TALK KNOWLEDGE

Expertise is key. So, learn from the experts to become an expert and broaden your horizon by meeting fellow experts. During our TECHTALK, a Keylaner & an external subject matter expert shares his knowledge with you.

If you want to know more about Product Development, Java, Data & Migration, Agile Software Development? Save your seat and see what we have to share with you. Oh, and there’s pizza too!

The age of waiting three to four years for new Java releases has ended. Since the launch of Java 9, every six months a new version sees the daylight. This is why it’s more important than ever to stay up to date! Chances are high you are mostly developing with Java 8. With Oracle’s roadmap in mind, this won’t be for long. Java 11 is already up and running. So, what do we do now?

WHY YOU CANNOT SKIP THIS TECH MEETUP

During this TECHTalk we take a look at all the newly introduced features since the launch of Java 8. We first discuss Java 9’s new modular system, continue with the local-variable type inference feature (Java 10) and conclude the ‘big feature’ topic with Java 11’s HttpClient API. Besides the big features, we also cover smaller changes within the Java platform since Java 8. After this Talk, you will feel more comfortable to leave Java 8 behind!

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

 

ABOUT OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

“Software Architecture is the act of purposely balancing opposing forces. Experience and knowledge are key to ensuring our clients get the software they deserve. As a luminis fellow, I have a strong focus on sharing knowledge both within luminis and externally.”

Sander Mak is an experienced Software Designer and Developer with excellent analytical skills. Additionally, he has experience in being a Technical Lead and Architect during the complete software lifecycle from inception to production. Pushing the frontier on both the backend (event-sourcing, data science) and frontend (for example using TypeScript) every day!

His interests are broad but revolve mainly around the JVM ecosystem. Emerging languages like Scala and TypeScript have his full attention. By following the leading edge of software development he keeps learning and growing. Meanwhile, he contributes back by sharing knowledge at conferences like JavaOne, QCon, Jfokus, GeeCON and more.

ABOUT HIS BOOK

The Java 9 module system will affect existing applications and offer new ways of creating modular and maintainable applications. With this hands-on book, Java developers will learn not only about the joys of modularity, but also about the patterns needed to create truly modular and reliable applications. Authors Sander Mak and Paul Bakker teach you the concepts behind the Java 9 module system, along with the new tools it offers. You’ll also gain learn how to modularize existing code and how to build new Java applications in a modular way. Understand Java 9 module system concepts Master the patterns and practices for building truly modular applications Migrate existing applications and libraries to Java 9 modules Use JDK 9 tools for modular development and migration.
