It has been a couple of weeks since I last traveled anywhere, but now it starts again. I will speak at the Belgium JUG in Hasselt on Tuesday, March 19. My talk there will be about what to expect from Jakarta EE 11. As usual, there will be a live demo. This time, the demo may be a bit more exciting than usual since I have upgraded to MacOS 14.4 already (see the next section for why). Anyway, I am looking forward to meeting friends in the Belgian Java Community, and hopefully, there will be fries…

Oracle announced yesterday that macOS 14.4 introduced an issue with Java on Apple silicon that can cause Java processes to terminate unexpectedly. Read the full announcement for more details. Since I always keep my system up-to-date and install all updates as soon as they are released, both my MacBooks may have this problem. I haven’t noticed anything yet, and maybe the applications I usually run aren’t affected. I am pretty sure that Apple will provide a fix for this fairly quickly. If you haven’t updated to 14.4 yet, I would wait until that fix is available.

Devnexus will happen in Atlanta April 9-11. This is the premier Java conference in the US and is definitely the place to be at that time. The speaker lineup is amazing, and the schedule is packed with world-class sessions along with social activities. There will also be an entire track dedicated to Jakarta EE as well as the opportunity to attend the Jakarta EE Workshop with Ken Fogel and myself.
