Java Annotated Monthly – November 2020

In good news, banning myself from reading the newspapers and scrolling through Twitter on my phone at night means my levels of anxiety are significantly lower this month. In bad news, it means less content for November’s Java Annotated Monthly. The silver lining is that you can have a more relaxed November, with less stuff-you-have-to-read.

Java News

Java 16 is due 16 March (that works out nicely), and some features are already planned.

Java Tutorials & Tips

Loads of lovely Java tips this month

Open Source

October is Hacktoberfest, which JetBrains was sponsoring and participating in. So it seems a good time to give Open Source it’s own section in Annotated Monthly, at least for this month.

Languages, Frameworks, Libraries and Technologies

It was quite a big month for Kotlin, and since I’m right in the middle of it all here at JetBrains I can’t help but add a bunch of relevant content to “Java” Annotated Monthly. Well, the JVM is a big place and there’s room for all of us.

Conferences and Events

Advocacy & DevRel

In October the Java Developer Advocacy team at JetBrains expanded to four members! If you haven’t met us all yet, we are: me (Trisha Gee), Mala Gupta, Helen Scott and Dalia Abo Sheasha. Fortunately I have a bunch of advocacy-related links to post, which gave me an excuse for the introduction.

Culture & Community

And Finally

A round up of blog posts and videos from IntelliJ IDEA and JetBrains:
