Java Annotated Monthly – August 2021

Apparently it’s been three whole months since I, Helen, last had the pleasure of editing Java Annotated Monthly. I do feel that time is passing differently since the pandemic. Then again, I’m constantly surprised that it’s not March 2020. Right, on to the show! First up, IntelliJ IDEA 2021.2 has been released! Trisha has done an excellent job as always with the screencast detailing What’s new for Java Developers.

I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that we, the Java Advocates Team, launched our Coffee Club this week. We streamed our first session called Episode Zero (of course) on Wednesday.

Episode One is going to be live on our YouTube channel on Wednesday 11th August. We will all be talking about levelling up as a developer through non-technical skills. We hope you can join us for the discussion!
