In the Java 9-10-11-12-13-14 -... course participants learn the new features that have been added to the Java Platform after Java 8. Since Java 9 a new release of Java is published every six months, so that the Java versions have succeeded each other in rapid succession ever since. This is much faster than the 3-year time span that was previously common.
The new release frequency fits better in the modern continuous delivery world. You don't have to wait long before new features are implemented in Java. The consequence is that new Java versions contain fewer new features and that it is also not clear in advance which feature has been introduced in which version. Also organizations will not be able to implement a new upgrade of their code base every six months.
The course starts with the discussion of the new features in Java 9. Among other things the new module system introduced in Java 9 is discussed. Modules can be seen as a kind of package over Java Packages, so that code can be built in an even better modular way and is reusable.
Attention is paid to the additions in Java 10, such as type inference, class data sharing and more. Attention is also paid to improvements in GC algorithms and the JVM.
Next we pay attention to the extensions in Java 11 such as nested access control, lambda parameters, new String class methods and more. Java 12 additions include switch expressions, raw String literals, the JVM Constants API and more. These extensions are also discussed and explained.
Finally the new features of the Java 13 and 14 releases are treated as well as the features of releases that have been published since then. The course is constantly updated and focuses on the most important new features since Java 8.
The course Java 9-10-11-12-13-14-... is intended for developers who want to learn the new features that were added to Java since version 9.
Good knowledge of and experience with Java 8 programming is recommended, but is is not required to have extensive knowledge of Java 8.
The theory is treated on the basis of presentations and is interchanged with exercises. Demos are used to clarify the theory. The course uses the newest version of Java. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.
Participants receive an official certificate Java-9-10-11-12-13-14-.... after successful completion of the course.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
