Speaker: Brent Wilkins

Topic: Java 9 Modules: What’s the Hype All About?

One of the biggest hypes about Java 9 is the Java Platform Modular System (JPMS) or Project Jigsaw. Modules give us 3 core principals:

  • Strong Encapsulation
  • Stable Abstraction
  • Explicit Dependencies

In this talk we will discuss the history of JPMS, look at some of its core features and do some demos.

Speaker Bio

Brent Wilkins is a Senior Java Developer at Hobby Lobby, where he works on the HobbyLobby.com ecommerce website as a full-stack developer. Before that he spent 25 years in IT at The Hertz Corporation developing and architecting the full-stack Java platform for their US Rent-A-Car locations.

Speaker: Jason Lee

Topic: Jerkey: An introduction to Kotlin DSLs using Jersey

One of the many strengths of Kotlin is the ease with it allows us to write Domain Specific Languages. Perhaps you’ve seen Anko for Android, or maybe TornadoFX for JavaFX and gotten the itch to write your own, or maybe just wondered how its done. Wonder know more!

In this session, we’ll start from the beginning as we build Jerkey, Kotlin-based DSL for building Jersey applications (Jersey + Kotlin = Jerkey ;). We’ll start by covering the basics you need to understand in order write a DSL. Next, we’ll spec out how we want the DSL to look and work, and, finally, we’ll implement it and in doing so demonstrate not only the power of Kotlin, but how well the Kotlin/Java interop really is by showing code paths bouncing between Java and Kotlin code.
