So is time to celebrate! We got a new box of toys with the new release of Java! This is also a Long-Term-Support release which means that’s usually a “good one” to jump into! Switch Expressions! Helpful Nullpointers, Sealed Classes… there is a TON that’s new
And we got the best Doctor in town to walk us through all of them. We’re of course talking about Stuart Marks! (AKA Dr. Deprecator). We cover most of the important features from 11 to 17 (there’s a ton that was left out, so keep following the links to know more!)
