Duration: 50 mins

We will program with Java quite differently in the future than we do today. The reason is that Java is embracing asynchronous programming like never before. This will have a huge impact on how we create services and web applications. In this presentations we will look at what asynchronous programming is, what continuations are, how they get implemented under the hood, and how we can benefit from them.
