10:35am - 11:25am




Join Gil Tene, CTO of Azul Systems and member of the JCP Executive Committee, as he takes a look a where Java SE and the JDK are today (and where we've come from as a community). This technical backed talk will touch on Java 7/8/9/10/11 and explore the ecosystem, key decisions and trends, and bumps we've had (or will have) along the way. Some of the areas this talk explores include:

  • OpenJDK  and the move of Java SE to open source
  • The role of Java in the Big Data and Infrastructure components
  • Unsafe
  • JCP and OpenJDK
  • Upcoming capabilities with JDK9, and what later versions may be adding
  • and much, much more
