Introducing Java 7 - Moving Forward - 7/7/11 7:00 AM


It would have been awesome :) 7/7/7 or something similar. But even if I believe, that the Oracle marketing guys fought until the last minute against M.Reinhold and A.Messinger they obviously lost. The final GA date for Java SE 7 is and will be the 7/28/11. But let's forget about this. Most important are the parties happening around the world.
First and foremost the Java User Groups Gear Up to Celebrate the Java 7 Launch and there are other Oracle sponsored events or even better some mini conferences. Introducing Java 7 Webcast: Moving Java Forward. There should be time to attend. If you are reading this, there are still two more hours to go until the webcast starts. And here is my little contribution. Preparing a mini session about the new Java features hosted by my company, I decided to put up the slides. So, if you are into learning something new: Here you are. A comprehensive overview about Java 7! Like to read your comments! Have a great party!
