Java Community Keynote Reloaded

Session abstract

You wake up in the morning and go to work, grab a cup of Java, and sit down at your desk to code. But the coffee tastes too perfect…the low hum of the office fans too regular…and you get a weird feeling of deja vu as a black cat crosses your window…twice. You may already be a prisoner in the Java Matrix! The Java Matrix is a virtual world designed to keep hackers content while the machines exploit their creativity. Come to the Java Community Keynote and help the Java rebels fight against evil JVM agents who are after your code!Java, Open Technologies and Cloud Native Development: The Next Generation of Innovation EmergesInnovation in the Java ecosystem has always been driven by collaboration around core open technologies. A platform which has enabled developers to create solutions across a diverse set ofindependent domains. With a uniquely strong combination of partnerships between Java developers, standards organizations and technology leaders, we have created the largest, strongest, and most vibrant developer community in the world. So what are the newer challenges facing the Java community? As Java developers tackle cloud based deployment models to solve complex enterprise problems, new architectural patterns such as microservices emerge, driving a need to evolve existing programming models and invent new ones. In this keynote hear from two of IBM distinguished Engineers that will take you through IBM’s developer focus, and how an open community driven approach will enable the next generation of innovation needed on the Java platform. Learn how IBM’s ongoing commitment to the Java community and it’s wide support of open source and open innovation is powering Java into the future.

The keynote has started great!


Open sourced:

  • Open Liberty
  • OpenJ9
  • microaprofile


Buzzword compatible demo

  • 2X smaller memory footprint
  • 2X faster

  • its free stuff!

Getting started with Open Liberty:

There are lots off open source ibm projects out there

developer community

Fun for all :-)

  • Take the blue pill or the red EE4J one :-)
  • we are vulnerable to secret injection attacks
  • JVM Agents are out there!
  • you have to learn ‘the spirit of Jigsaw’
  • can you teach me karata to fight the jvm agents?
    • we will learn you ‘kata’ wich means types. We like type safety

Very fun Matrix enactment 👍👊
