Join me at TopConf Linz Feb 1-3 2016 Linz, Austria. I will be talking about Android and Java, subtle and not so subtle differences, origins and possible futures.
The title of the talk is Beyond Harmony: Java SE vs. Android. It's scheduled 2016-02-02 at 12:00. Abstract: It is common place that most Android apps are written in Java. But what does that mean? Are enhancements to the language available immediately, or can't they be used at all? Do developers benefit from improvements to the class library? This talk not only addresses these questions, but explains how to use features that are not meant to be available.
