Am 10. Mai 2016 lädt die Java Usergroup Berlin-Brandenburg und die E-Post Development GmbH zum Vortragsabend How Java evolves ein. Die gesamte Veranstaltung wird auf Englisch stattfinden.
How Java envolves (Patrick Curran): The Java Community Process (JCP) is key to the evolution of Java technology. This session emphasizes the value of transparency and participation in the JCP program, through both Java User Groups (JUGs), and through the Adopt-a-JSR program, the community led and developed program to empower Java developers around the world to make a contribution to Java technology. Find out how to become an active participant in advancing the Java platform - JSRs for Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 8 and Java Standard Edition (Java SE) 9 are being developed now. This session discusses the transparency that enables participation in the JCP program and how to get involved through the Adopt-a-JSR program. You will also hear about some upcoming changes to the Java Specification Request (JSR) process itself through the latest version of the JCP, and learn how you can get involved. Come with your questions/suggestions, and leave with the motivation and information you need in order to become an active participant in advancing the Java platform now and in the future.
Panel on the Java Community Process: This session will be followed by a panel discussion with the JCP Executive Committee (EC) Members. The EC is the group of Members guiding the evolution of Java technology in the JCP. The EC represents both major stakeholders and a representative cross-section of the Java Community. The EC is responsible for approving the passage of specifications through key points of the JCP.
