Evolving Java and the JVM: Mobile, Micro and Modular

Location: Mountbatten, 6th flr.

Day of week: Wednesday

Although the Java language is holding strong as a developer favourite, new languages and paradigms are being embraced on JVM, including Kotlin, native microservice frameworks, and modularisation (Jigsaw).

This is an intro-level talk on deep learning. We’ll start with a brief introduction to deep neural networks, why they are important and how they work. The talk will then cover two of the most important deep neural architectures: convolutional networks which excel at handling images and recurrent networks which handle time-series or sequential input (such as text). We'll show examples of both convolutional and recurrent networks using the deeplearning4j framework.

Java is on billions of devices but what does that really mean? How far can you take Java? Whats the smallest device you can run it on and what’s the largest? What about cloud or clusters or containers or even new types of hardware? In this talk learn more about how Java and the JVM cope with the challenge of meeting the needs of such a disparate set of requirements. With a range of examples this talk will explore the cutting edge of “Java at Scale” and discuss...

Since Java 9, a brand new module system is part of the Java platform. This isn’t your average language feature: making the most out of it may involve rewiring your brain. In this session we explore the benefits of a modular codebase using Java 9 modules. After reviewing the basic concepts of modules, we’ll explore modularity patterns that enhance your design and development skills. Then, we'll take modules to the extreme by creating a tiny custom runtime image...
