The Future of Java and You
This session will explore how Java development has been brought into the open - several Java developer efforts have brought open source development processes and new levels of transparency and participation into their communities. The Java Community Process (JCP) program celebrates twenty years of Java standards development in 2019. Learn about the latest Java innovations to the Java SE Platform - Java SE 11, 12, 13 and beyond. Since the initiation of efforts to expand the developer participation in the Java community, Java standards development is more open that it ever has been.
Learn how to take part in the Java developer community and the upcoming changes to Java - you can participate as an individual, corporation, or nonprofit such as a Java user group (JUG). This session answers questions about why and how to participate in the evolution of the Java platform. You will also learn about the global Adoption programs and how you can participate in contributing to the future of Java.
