Hello and welcome to another year of JavaAdvent. 24 fresh articles, one every day from December, 1st until Christmas eve.
We are happy to have many well-known and not-so-well-known authors on-board this year. You can look forward to a huge variety of different contents.
Markus Eisele will kick off this year with his end of year review, keeping an eye on developer joy.
Beside Markus’ article, you will find articles about dependency management, concurrency, Elasticsearch, Spring boot, reactive operator, polyglot programming with GraalVM… Well, let’s not spoil too much!
Another treat is brought to you by Jetbrains. We are proud that they support us this year. They gave us FOUR licenses to give away. So we decided to split this pack into two by two. Two of them will go to two lucky authors as little extra thank you.
For you, our loyal visitors, we have the other two reserved for a raffle you can easily enter via this Google Form: https://forms.gle/K64XAH6npZujyL7q6. Simply give us your name, first name or nickname are totally ok, and your email address. On December, 24th we will draw the two lucky winners and send the licenses to them to that very email. Once you got the license, you decide which tool from Jetbrains toolbox you’d like to use for a whole year free of charge.
So, enough of the preamble text. Enjoy this year’s edition of the Java Advent and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to be involved next year.
