It’s been a while since the last event with Javaforum Malmö. In fact, our last meetup was a little more than two years ago. I don’t have a good explanation for this other than that it has been two busy years with a lot of travel around the World. The goal going forward is to have some more regularity around the events. Join Javaforum Malmö on Meetup, follow Javaforum Malmö on X, and join us on Slack to stay up-to-date. And, of course, if you are interested in hosting an event, speaking at an event, or just helping out in general, do not hesitate to contact me!
We started with a talk by Gerrit Grunwald titled Wargames – Java Vulnerabilities and Why You Should Care. As the title implies, Gerrit takes you through all you need to know about Java vulnerabilities, and how to mitigate them.
After the pizza break, we continued with my talk From Spring Boot 2 to Spring Boot 3 with Java 21 and Jakarta EE. The takes you through how to handle the namespace change from
jakarta.* when bumping the version of Spring Boot from 2 to 3.
It was a very successful event for Javaforum Malmö with almost every seat taken as you can see in the photo below. I guess I was more focused on catching my cool personal banner in the frame than capturing Gerrit on stage. You can see him hiding behind the camera in the background.
