It used to mean you were severely behind if you ran a version of Java that was three versions off the newest Java release, but now Java 12 is out and Java 9 doesn't feel so old. And what's this about Java 8 costs money now? Oracle has introduced a lot of changes to the Java ecosystem in the last year. Zach VanMeter will discuss the current state of Java that and cover:
- New release cadence for Java
- New features from recent Java releases and what is on the roadmap
- Support/Costs for legacy Java releases
- OpenJDK vs Java
