The Java Community Process: How you can help to define the future of Java
This session will explain how Java is evolved through the Java Community Process (JCP) program and how you can participate in that evolution as an individual, as a representative of your employer, or as a member of a non-profit organization such as a Java User Group. We will discuss the Adopt-a-JSR program and provide examples of the ways in which Java User Groups from all over the world have helped to define, to implement, and to test the Java EE 7 and Java SE 8 platforms. Java EE 8 and Java SE 9 are being developed now. You can help, and in the process you will have fun, learn new skills, and advance your career. Learn how to make the future Java!
Hope to see you at Voxxed Days Istanbul 2016.
