[GUEST] Reactive Programming with Core JDK Workshop / JCP Intro
We have two *special guests* joining us. The first is Heather Van Cura - the chair person of the Java community process who will speak about how the JCP works and what you can do to contribute. As the one running the show, she'll teach us how each and every one of us can make a change to Java through the JCP. Later on we will have a workshop with Sven Ruppert from Vaadin. He will demonstrate building a functional reactive code with Core JDK. For the workshop you will need your own laptop with preinstalled with the following: - (Recommended) JDK 11 (possible with JDK 8 as well but why not use the opportunity to test drive the new shiny version of Java ?) - Maven - Git - Your favourite IDE (IntelliJ / Ecllipse / Netbeans/ Vim ) - Make sure to pull to the latest version of the workshop from Agenda: 18:00 - 18:30 Rally-up - Pizzas, beer courtesy of Kenshoo. 18:30 - 18:35 Opening words 18:35 - 18:50 The Future of Java and You / Heather Van Cura - Oracle 18:50 - 19:20 Functional Reactive with Core Java - the frameworkless way / Sven Ruppert - Vaddin 19:20 - 19:30 Short break 19:30 - 22:00 Reactive with Core Java - Hands On Lab * The Future of Java and You * Learn how to take a part in Java technology evolution through the Java community process.
