A Quarter of a Century of Java – in Croatia


Keynote speech

Date and time






This community keynote brought to you by HUJAK, will present the past, the present and, the most important, the future of Java as one of the best programming languages and the most widespread software development platform in the world today, but, even more important, as an enormous ecosystem of code, libraries, tools, services, and – the people behind it all. We will take on a journey through the most interesting features of Java programming language in the last years, as well as the most prospective new projects and features that will be a part of the future of Java in the next few years. To name a few, we will discuss many contemporary projects such as Loom, Valhalla, Panama, Graal, Loom, and Metropolis, as well as new features related to Switch Expressions, Text Blocks, Pattern Matching, NullPointerExceptions, and Records. In the second part, we will also address the current state of software development related to Java and similar technologies, presenting results from various developer's surveys, with additional focus on our part of the world and Croatia. We will also provide recommendations coming from HUJAK as local Java community and how to respond to current software development challenges, and discuss the future of our software development in the context of remote work, education, and employment.
