Anticipating Java 9 - Functionality and Tooling


java Java Language

LL 20 A

Thursday from 11:00 AM til 11:50 AM

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.
