What we're about

Utrecht Java User Group refers to anyone around Netherlands, interested in Java and Open Source development.

Whether you are a professional in the field, an enthusiast , a student looking to build your career in Java development, or just somebody looking for good food and free beer, we'd love to see you at one of our meetups.

The "official language" is English, so that non-Dutch speakers can also participate easily.

Looking forward to meeting you all and exchange of knowledge and ideas!

Java 15; what's in it for me? & SSL/TLS for Mortals

After a seven month break because of Covid-19 we are happy and proud to announce our September meetup with two awesome speakers. Please join us and RSVP! Due to Covid-19 regulations, we have a limited number of seats available. We will take all necessary hygienic measures to provide a safe environment. Because of the limited number of seats, please keep your RSVP up-to-date so we can welcome someone else if you can't make it. 17:30 Doors open 18:00 Pizza 19:00 SSL/TLS for Mortals by Maarten Mulders 20.00 Break 20:15 Java 15; what's in it for me? by Sander Mak 21:15 Drinks ======================= Giveaways 1 JetBrains license 1 free ticket for AxonIQ Conference (Oct. 1-2) ====================== About the talks SSL/TLS for Mortals Using SSL/TLS the right way is often a big hurdle for developers. We prefer to have that one colleague perform "something with certificates" because he/she knows how that works. But what if “that one colleague” is enjoying vacation and something goes wrong with the certificates? In this session, we’ll take a close look at secure communication at the transport level. Starting with what exactly SSL and TLS is, we'll dive into public/private keys, and signing. We'll also learn what all this has to do with an unfortunate Dutch notary. Of course, there'll be plenty of practical tips & tricks, as well as demos. Attend this session to become "that one colleague"! ========================= Java 15: what's in it for me? With almost boring precision another Java release is brought to us this month. What's in it, however, is far from boring! In this talk, Sander will show you the highlights. We'll look at text blocks, records (the much anticipated data class for Java), pattern matching, and more. Be sure to bring your questions, because many of these new features are just a starting point for more Java evolution down the line. Let's find out together what the future of Java holds! ====================== About the speakers Maarten Mulders Maarten is a passionate architect, senior developer and trainer at Info Support. Also Oracle Groundbreaker Ambassador. He is eager about "building the right thing" and "building the thing right". He focusses on lean and elegant solutions, and loves to share new ideas and knowledge. Outside work, he appreciates crafting and eating good food, photography, and music, in no particular order. ==================== Sander Mak Sander is Director of Technology at Picnic —the Dutch online grocery scale-up— building Java-based systems at scale. He also is a Java Champion and author of the O'Reilly book 'Java 9 Modularity' (see javamodularity.com). As an avid conference speaker, Sander loves sharing knowledge.
