Java 13 with Georges Saab

Java has been popular since the 90s, when it started to be used as a programming language for enterprises. 

Today, Java is still widely deployed, but the infrastructure environment is dramatically different. Java is often deployed to containers in the cloud. If those containers can share resources, then those containers can share the same underlying Java infrastructure. 

Java 13 is the most recent public release of Java. The new features in Java 13 reflect the changing demands of modern application developers. Georges Saab is an engineer with Oracle who has been working on Java for more than a decade. He joins the show to discuss how Java development patterns are changing, and how the language is evolving to accommodate those changes, including discussion of garbage collection and dynamic application class data sharing.
