Java’s four big projects are entering the home stretch: Amber and Panama have already incubated, previewed, and even finalized some features, Loom and Valhalla are on track to follow soon. Time to take a closer look at how…
Project Amber makes the language more expressive and ready for today’s and tomorrow’s problems
Project Panama cuts through the isthmus separating Java from native code
Project Loom enables hassle-free and efficient structured concurrency
Project Valhalla mends the rift in Java’s type system and improves performance
After this talk, you will know what to expect from Java in the next few years.
