1] The Future of Java and You
This session will explore how Java development has been brought into the open over the past decade. Several Java developer efforts have brought open source development processes and new levels of transparency and participation into their communities. The Java Community Process (JCP) program celebrates twenty years of Java standards development in 2018. Since the initiation of efforts to expand the developer participation in the Java community, Java standards development is more open than it ever has been.
Learn how to take part in the Java developer community and the upcoming changes to the Java platform – you can participate as an individual, corporation, or nonprofit such as a Java user group (JUG). This session answers questions about why and how to participate in the evolution of the Java platform. You will also learn about the global Adoption programs and how you can participate in contributing to the future of Java.

2] Cloud-native event-driven architecture with Spring and Azure
What can you do with serverless systems in the cloud? Plenty, and you can do it at great speed with the cloud-scale. In the session, you’ll learn about the role of serverless technology, the importance of event processing and event-driven architectures for Java developers.
Starting with a Spring Cloud Stream and Spring Cloud Function overview, we will show you how Apache Kafka, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Azure Event Hubs, Azure Functions and Cosmos DB can be used in an event-driven architecture. Followed by this discussion, we will show a live-demo of a solution-architecture that collect data from globally distributed sources, processes the data in real-time in order to derive near-real-time insights. If you want to learn how to build and deliver modern responsive streaming applications at cloud-scale, this session is for you. Don’t miss it!
