Switched for javascript - I guess dealing with gulp, yarn, npm, and everything is easier..

An older video from earlier in the year - but there still seem to be a lot of people under the impression that JDK9 only brings Jigsaw, when that's hardly the case.

Sure, a lot of these changes are smaller things, but for the end user/developer - will probably have a much larger immediate benefit than such things as modules.

A Haskell keynote at a C++ conference? Regardless of your thoughts on Haskell, this is a really interesting talk on parallel programming, memory models, data baking.

Using +Apache Maven and JDK9 Jigsaw Modules to make a super small, self contained, modular JRE+App distribution.

35mb for java.base@9-ea - that's smaller than #$(*&#( Hibernate!

Jigsaw APPROVED on second ballet vote.

However...

On 2017-06-23 Red Hat voted Abstain with the following comment:
Red Hat is voting Abstain at this time because although we think there has been positive progress within the EG to reach consensus since the last vote, we believe that there are a number of items within the current proposal which will impact wider community adoption that could have been addressed within the 30 day extension period for this release. However, we do not want to delay the Java 9 release and are happy with the more aggressive schedule proposed by the Specification Lead and EG for subsequent versions of Java because getting real world feedback on the modularity system will be key to understanding whether and where further changes need to occur. We hope that the Project Lead and EG will continue to be as open to input from the wider Java community as they have been in the last 30 days and look forward to the evolution of Java being driven by data from users and communities beyond OpenJDK.
We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the EG, the Oracle Specification Lead and others who assisted in the numerous meetings which have taken place in the last 30 days. This increased collaboration and positive approaches to discussing and resolving issues has been welcomed by ourselves and the wider Java community.
