The Evolution of Java: 9, 10, 11, and 12
Java is a language in evolution. There are a handful of language changes in Java 9 and 10 plus several JDK changes in 9, 10, 11, and 12. Some of these changes are significant in that they allow us to do things more effectively than before. The difference can be anywhere from reducing code to avoiding errors that come from verbosity. In this presentation we will explore the language changes first. Then we will visit the additions to the JDK. Along the way we will also look at a few things that have been removed from Java as well.

We request all to follow general meeting etiquette in the meeting. Respect individual and personal views
Come to the meetings on time. We are ok with 15 minutes deviation. However any further delays will make the meeting irrelevant for you and un-necessary distraction for the speaker and the audience.
If you change your mind after RSVPing on the meetup please un RSVP. It helps in keeping track of the head count. We don't always get a bigger venue and its a last minute hassle to accommodate everyone in the meeting.
