Dr. Venkat Subramaniam gave a marathon of highly rated sessions at Devoxx Belgium. We talked about the adoption of Java 9 and the problems it tries to solve: “When it comes to making code available, one of the things we have to really get a grip on is, ‘What do we really depend on?’…you don’t want to use everything, you’re not going to use everything.”

We also discussed Reactive Programming and finally… code that just plain sucks.
