What comes to your mind when you hear the word Java? How about blockchain, DevOps and microservices? If you want to learn about emerging technologies or dive deeper into topics you’re already familiar with (I’m looking at you Java 9), what better way to do that than to go straight to the source? You’ll learn all about blockchain from Brian Behlendorf, Executive Director of the Hyperledger Project, Georges Saab, chairperson of the OpenJDK governing board and vice president of development for the Java Platform Group at Oracle and Marcus Biel, Software Craftsman, JCP member and CleanCode Evangelist will tell you more about Java 9 and modularity and Abby Kearns, Executive Director of Cloud Foundry Foundation will talk about diversity in tech. Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation is here to talk about Eclipse Oxygen and the Java 9 support while JavaOne Rock Stars Monica Beckwith and Stephen Colebourne share their Java 9 experiences with us.
