We know technology can change the world. We've seen it from the Industrial Revolution to the impact of social media on elections.
The question is: can we do better?
Can we help people enact the sorts of changes they really want to see? Can we bring people together, encourage empathy, help bridge divides to build better societies?
This Birds of a Feather session is an opportunity to come together to decide actions that we, developers, can take to promote the sort of change we want to see in the world.
At this conference, no doubt we're going to learn all about what's coming in Java 9, and it's so much more than just Jigsaw. But what we're really wondering is, will it change the way we develop, like Java 8 did? Will my tools break when I try to use it? Is it worth playing with it before it comes out, or should I just wait until everything stabilises?
In this talk, Trisha will take a look at the features in Java 9, demonstrate, via live coding, using the new features in IntelliJ IDEA, talk a bit about the current and future support for Java 9 in IntelliJ IDEA, and look to the near future to see how Java 9 may impact our day to day development.
