Java is now on a fast six-month release cycle. Many enterprises had just finished moving to Java 8 with its new features when Java 9 came out September 2017. These releases will provide enhancements to the JVM and the Java language and offer opportunities for rapid innovation for all Java developers.

But many major enterprises were waiting for Java 11 in September 2018 which is the next long term support release before migrating their apps. Some enterprises are moving from Java 9 directly to Java 11.

There are significant new and useful features in the Java 11 releases such as a new local variable syntax for lambda parameters, the HTTP Client standard and a brand-new, low-latency garbage collector (Epsilon - JEP 318). This session will review code examples of these new features in Java 11, and also features of Java 10. We will also discuss the impact of the new Java release train on production code.
