Prepare for Two New Preview Features with JDK 13

Developers once had to wait years to use new Java features. Now, updates are released every six months, offering the ability to test and evaluate “preview” features and offer feedback before they become permanent within the Java environment. The upcoming release of Java 13 will bring with it two new experimental language features: enhanced Switch Expressions and Text Blocks. In this webinar, we will cover:

  • The updated Java release cadence and “preview” features.
  • The new experimental language features coming with JDK13
  • How these features will work in a live coding environment.
