As I promised in Hashtag Jakarta EE #126, here is a short recap of my weekend in Istanbul and Java Day Istanbul 2022. The eighth edition of this conference had an online part on Friday, whereas the main conference day was in-person on Saturday.
Traffic in Istanbul can be a challenge on weekdays, so it is a good strategy to have the conference on a Saturday.
I did a talk titled Jakarta EE 10 – Feature by Feature where I went through the new features introduced in Jakarta EE 10. I demoed a couple of the features, including the new API for Build Compatible Extensions in CDI 4.0 lite.
Java Day Istanbul is a community-oriented conference that is supported by the Istanbul Java User Group. It is well organized and features a great lineup of speakers and content. It was my first time speaking in Istanbul, and I surely hope it won’t be the last.
