From Chaos to Clarity: Data Frames in Java

Finding that traditional data structures just aren’t cutting it? The Java Collections Framework and tools like Eclipse Collections are useful but can fall short in complex scenarios. Defining domain classes can help, but frequent data and business logic changes make refactoring a constant hassle. Alternatives like map-oriented programming often result in cumbersome and hard-to-read code. Enter data frames. They combine the efficiency of collection frameworks with the ease of grouping and transforming data. Join me for a talk and code demo to see how data frames can simplify tasks like data transformation, enrichment, validation, and reconciliation in your Java projects. You’ll learn how to streamline your workflows and handle data more effectively.

Jakarta EE 11: Going Beyond the Era of Java EE

Join us for an informative presentation on the evolution and future of Jakarta EE. Since its inception in 2018, Jakarta EE has grown from an open-source continuation of Java EE 8 into a robust platform with significant updates and new features. We’ll explore the major milestones from Jakarta EE 8 to the transformative Jakarta EE 9, and the introduction of the Core Profile in Jakarta EE 10. As Jakarta EE 11 prepares for its GA release in the first half of 2024, we’ll dive into its new and updated specifications, including its alignment with Java 21, the latest LTS release. Our session will offer a concise history of Java EE/Jakarta EE, highlight the exciting changes in Jakarta EE 11, and provide practical insights with code examples.
