A new version of Java is being released every six months. The days of giant releases are gone, Java has truly embraced the spirit of agility. Some wonder, what impact will this frequent release have on Java, its quality, adoption, and future development? What intensives do developers and organizations have to keep pace with Java. Should they stay abreast or catch up once in a few years? All good questions and reasonable concerns.
In this presentation we will discuss the changes that are currently happening in Java, what innovation looks like in the Java ecosystem, what are some of the things we should keep a close eye on that are coming around the corner, and why developers and organizations, now, more than ever, should be adopting the newer versions.
