« jbang: Unleash the power of Java for shell scripting »
16:40 - 17:05
JUDCon Conference [Amphi 139]

Scripting is not something you do with java. You use bash, python, groovy, kotlin or something else than Java.

What if I told you that it does not need to be that way ?

Since January 2020 there exist a way to use Java as a language for scripting. No maven, no gradle, no scaffolding, just a single .java file which can use external libraries and you are of the races.

Come to this talk to hear how jbang came to be, what challenges it solves, how it helps you to explore and teach Java.

Will also cover how by using the power of Github Actions jbang is now automatically published to be easy installable on all three major operating systems and become accessible everywhere.
