October is all about Java 9 and to present all the exciting news for you is Venkat Subramaniam who will be our speaker of the evening! Pizza and drinks are served at 16:30, Venkat will start his talk at 17:00 (and finish ca. 18.30). The event will be held in English!

Abstract: If Java 8 was all about how we code, Java 9 is all about how we will build. Modularization will have the biggest impact of any change that happened in Java since its inception. In this presentation we will learn about the need for modularization, how it impacts development, the rules to follow when creating modules, and the effect it has on legacy code.

We will explore creating module, using modules, readability, exports, automatic modules, and unnamed modules.
