What's New in Java 16

Like clockwork, another Java release arrived this March. In this session, we'll dive into the exciting new features of Java 16. First, we'll look at API updates that will make your life easier. Then, we'll look at two major new language features: records and pattern matching. Sealed classes are still a preview feature in this version, but we'll take a peek at what they can offer as well. Come join me to stay up to date on all things Java!
