Getting the Most from Modern Java
About
With the release of JDK 16, we have had eight (yes eight!) versions of Java in three and a half years. In this session, we’ll explore in detail the following new features and how best to use them (as well as advice on when not to use them): • Local variable type inference (JDK 10) • Switch expressions (JDK 12) • Text blocks (JDK 13) • Records (JDK 14) • Pattern matching for instanceof (JDK 14) • Sealed classes and changes to Records (JDK 15) At the end of this session, you’ll be all set to write modern Java code!
