Join us on Thursday 10th January for a Project Valhalla and Java event.

Uberto Barbini will start with a short introduction to Valhalla. He’ll discuss the remaining open problems and look at examples on the current syntax. Following this, there will be a Valhalla workshop where attendees will be given time to try it out.

After a short break we’ll hear from Simon Maple and Heather VanCura who will give us an overview on the future of Java. Following this, you will have the opportunity to download and try out Java 12 early access builds and give your feedback before its release in March 2019.
