Over the last 25+ years, Java has offered developers a wealth of technical value. The technical heartbeat is strong and vibrant. But as we look towards the next 25 years and beyond, the value of Java is dependent on...YOU. It's the community who gives life to Java, ensuring it meets the needs of modern application development. For Java, the future isn't some distant dot on a calendar, the future is NOW. This session will offer valuable channels on how YOU can influence that future and how you can play a role. The future of Java IS community.
