New languages, work environments, technologies, and devices. Clouds roll
in bringing new rules. Is open really the source of the future? If the
future is now, what comes later? Java developers thread on a fine line
between working standards and bleeding edge science-fiction experiments.
What are the possibilities for the future? Can new languages available
for the JVM warp the realities of software development? Will Java really
be part of the new flock of devices? Cloud computing is changing the
game, how Java is a fundamental part of it? What open source has to do
with all of that? Is Java even the right solution for an open source,
cloud enabled environment? Are we prepared? This session will explore
possibilities for the future of development, sharing insights on what
you need to do now, to develop the future.
