Description JCON-ONLINE 2021 is the big international Java community conference organized by the Java User Group Oberpfalz in cooperation with JAVAPRO Magazine. Java is our profession and JCON our passion and a lot of fun. We love to provide Java developers a spectacular 100% live conference that is open to the entire Java- User-Group communities world-wide.

Last year, more than 2,000 participants from 51 countries worldwide have joined the JCON- ONLINE 2020.

The 5th JCON edition is presented as an online live conference for the second time. All sessions will be streamed live and recorded.

Maarten Mulders will talk about 'React in 50 minutes':

You've heard about React, the user interface library developed by Facebook? And you're wondering how to use it beyond the “Hello, World” stage? Then this talk is for you! Join me in an action-packed session full of live code examples where we'll discover how you can use React to build the hottest web applications while keeping your head cool. When you leave the room, you'll know enough to build real-world web applications!

Hanno Embregts will talk about 'Will Git Be Around Forever? A List of Possible Successors':

What source control software did you use in 2010? Possibly Git, if you were an early adopter or a Linux kernel committer. But chances are you were using Subversion, as this was the product of choice for the majority of the software developers. Ten years later, Git is the most popular product. Which makes me wonder: what will we use another ten years from now?

In this talk we will think about what features we want from our source control software in 2030. More speed? Better collaboration support? No merge conflicts ever?

I’ll also discuss a few products that have been published after Git emerged, including Plastic, Fossil and Pijul. I’ll talk about the extent to which they contain the features we so dearly desire and I’ll demonstrate a few typical use cases. To conclude, I’ll try to predict which one will be ‘the top dog’ in 2030 (all information is provided “as is”, no guarantees etc. etc.).

So attend this session if you’re excited about the future of version control and if you want to have a shot at beating even (!) the early adopters. Now if it turns out I was right, remember that you heard it here first.
