From now on, Java experts can apply with lectures for the next edition of the JavaLand conference. The call for papers planned for this is still open until September 27th. According to the current status, the event is to take place from March 15 to 17, 2022 in Phantasialand near Brühl. However, if the pandemic conditions do not allow a face-to-face event, what is probably the most important and largest German-speaking conference for Java developers will be held online, as this year.
We are looking for lectures of every level with a length of 40 minutes. Main topics include core Java & JVM techniques, JVM languages, software architecture, security, quality & testing, methodology & culture, enterprise Java, microservices, containers, cloud & infrastructure, tools, data & streaming, innovations as well as frontend, mobile & UX.
The newcomer program is also open. The initiative is aimed at those who have no or only minimal stage experience, but still have exciting stories to tell from their projects. Experienced mentors provide support from the selection of topics to the stage appearance. You can also apply for this from now on.
More than a hundred lectures
In the end, the JavaLand conference will again present itself with over a hundred lectures, community activities, workshops, an accompanying exhibition as well as exchange and networking with an amusement park flair. You can register for the event from September 1st.
The next year’s program will be announced from November 3rd. More information about the JavaLand conference can be found on the event website. Speakers will find helpful clues on a special page.
Java 17, the new LTS (Long-Term Support) release of the programming language and platform, will appear on September 14th. On the same day, Heise will host an online conference on the subject. In so-called deep dives, she presents the most important innovations since the last LTS release and gives valuable tips on migrating to the new or the latest Java release. Attractive early bird discount rates currently apply.
(Constant) increase in participants and community program
The JavaLand enjoyed growing popularity from year to year. In 2019, the organizers – the German Oracle User Group (DOAG), Heise Medien and iJUG, the interest group of German-speaking Java User Groups – welcomed around 2100 participants in Phantasialand. Compared to the 2018 edition, this meant an increase of around 200 visitors. It started in 2014 with around 800 visitors. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted hosting the 2020 edition. The organizers had to cancel the conference. This year the online edition welcomed well over a thousand visitors.
