Garden State Java User Group

November 2020 Meeting Information

November 4, 2020
Java Community Participation and Collaboration in 2020

We are happy to announce that Heather VanCura will be our special guest for this month's meeting.

The Java Community Process (JCP) program celebrates twenty five years of Java development in 2020. The JCP is the process by which the international Java community standardizes and ratifies the specifications for Java technologies. The JCP ensures high-quality specifications are developed using an inclusive, consensus-based approach. You can learn more about the JCP here.

Heather will explore how Java development has been brought into the open over the past decade. Several Java developer efforts have brought open source development processes and new levels of transparency and participation into their communities. Learn about the latest Java innovations to the Java SE Platform - Java SE 14, 15 and beyond.

Since the initiation of efforts to expand the developer participation in the Java community, Java standards development is more open that it ever has been. Learn how to take part in the Java developer community and the upcoming changes to Java - you can participate as an individual, corporation, or nonprofit such as a Garden State Java User Group (JUG).

This session answers questions about why and how to participate in the evolution of the Java platform. Learn about how you can participate in contributing to the future of Java and influence the next generation of Java developers.
