Games of Playtika - how we play, code and build using Java - powered by Playtika - DevAfterWork

About The Event

Do you test your code? How much effort do you put into testing?

During this presentation we will speak about the benefits of doing multiple types of developer based functional testing. You will find out how an extensive testing approach, efficiently implemented, can actually save you time on the long term and guarantee the success of the delivery.


In the last few years, the programming has changed drastically per the way hardware evolved, where parallel processing, real-time, cloud, and several other approaches have been introduced to achieve higher performance. Lambda expressions and streams received a heartwarming welcome in Java 8.

Java has been around for more than 20 years and has been declared dead many times but it is still the world's most popular programming platform. Their big secret is compatibility, but evolving a platform in a way that doesn't break people's code and "runs forever" takes longer.


Java has evolved using this strategy preserving the investment in your code, your experience and your knowledge and JDK 14 & 15 are no exception.

This talk will focus on Java's latest features that adapt to rising developer expectations and address the right-sizing language ceremony.
