Presentation: "Java Past, Present, and Future"

Time: Tuesday 09:00 - 09:50 / Location: Store Sal, Musikhuset

When it was introduced nearly 18 years ago, Java was a combination of radicalism and conservatism; it made a bold gamble that garbage collection and JIT compilation would mature fast enough to be useful for mainstream programs, while eschewing then-trendy features such as operator overloading. Java succeeded beyond Sun's wildest expectations, and now 10M developers program in Java. But the world hasn't stayed still; the hardware, the developers, and the problems we want to solve today are not the same as they were 18 years ago. So, how has Java evolved to meet these challenges, and how will it continue to evolve in the future? This talk will look at where Java has been, where it is today, and where it may be going in the future.
