Evolution has always been in the Java DNA, and according to Darwin, "It is neither the strongest nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change".

Project Amber is transforming Java's basic language constructs and introducing features to enhance productivity and coding experience. Join this session to stay ahead of the curve as Java adapts to the changing technology landscape and becomes more relevant than ever.

The audience will take away why, how, and where to use these language modifications that will transform your everyday coding experience. You'll see for yourself if it is worthwhile adopting all these new features.
