I went to FOSDEM to talk to like minded Java people. Always nice to see what’s happening across the open source Java community.
I spent most of my time in the Java Track Focus on OpenJDK and Java 9 of course but some cool other activities happening. IBM is open sourcing J9 (Which was announced at JavaOne 2016) Charlie Gracie @crgracie explained all the whys and wherefores.
On day two I went out looking at the other tracks around. FOSDEM is always amazing for showcasing the passion and inventiveness of coders. I did come across (in the Open Games room) the amazing Living Orb Give that a look!
