In the dark ages, we had to wait for 3-4 years to see the new Java version with some new features. Now there are two major releases every year! Can we benefit from the new features before the next LTS release?
We don’t have to wait 3 years or so for new features any more. Isn’t that cool? 😉 So… you’d like to check what has happened since Java 11? Record types? Switch expressions? Pattern matching? No more NPE? String blocks? New functions in APIs? What are the Shenandoah and ZGC about? AppCDS to speed up spin-off?
If you find them interesting, let’s check out together new interesting stuff.
In this talk (because it’s limited to 45 minutes) I’m able to merely scratch the surface of the changes. Please don’t confuse it with a deep dive.
