Welcome to the twenty-third issue of Hashtag Jakarta EE!
Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you are interested in participating in a Jakarta EE Community Chat! It is, as you see, very informal and low key.
We are making progress with Jakarta EE 9. The platform specification is almost done as you can see in this issue. The Milestone release is just around the corner and we are planning to host a release party to celebrate this milestone (pun intended ). Stay tuned for updates by following JakartaEE and/or me on Twitter.
