Learn You Some JShell for Great Good

Tech Elevator 7100 Euclid Ave., Suite 140 , Cleveland, OH (map)

JShell is the interactive programming tool for Java. Like the REPL (read-evaluate- print-loop) tools built-in with Python and Ruby, JShell allows you to easily try out your code without a lot of ceremony, or extraneous boilerplate. It comes included with Java 9. It is easy to learn, and fun to use. Whether you're an experienced Java developer, or just beginning, JShell will change your programming for "great good".

Bring your laptops with Java 9 installed to follow along, or simply watch, and  be transformed.  The presentation will cover basic JShell coding and editing, and more advanced topics such as the use of external JARs, and integration with IntelliJ. 


Craig Castelaz has been a programmer for over 30 years, and has coded in both modern and ancient tongues. Prior to coming to Tech Elevator, Craig was a Principle Software Engineer at Oracle. He is currently an Instructor at Tech Elevator in Cleveland, OH.
