Presentation: "The Road Ahead for Java"

Time: Wednesday 15:35 - 16:35

Location: Concordia Room

Abstract: Java doesn’t begin and end with the server, Java is everywhere. From servers and desktop applications to mobile devices, wireless sensors, smart cards, and TVs, Java is the world’s most widely used software development language and platform – it’s the choice of more than 9 million developers worldwide. This session aims to show you why – via latest developments in the Java Platform - from core Java SE and its reformation as a modular platform, and exciting new extensions to the Java language, to the new simplicity of enterprise computing in Java EE and its new directions towards cloud computing in the future.
