We are still developing a jbang workshop but there are 2 workshops available online now for students :
https://jcp.org/java-in-education

There is also a video talking about what is jbang and slides that we are using as background for a workshop targeted at students:

We did discuss jbang last time - Barry and Frank are investigating some options for a workshop and will report back in August.  Maybe they can share more here in this thread.

Hi,

I just realized I missed This as I was on vacation. 

Any conclusions / feedback on the jbang parts ?

Re: Updates from our discussion today and action items

 

Here's my contribution:

Edwin Derks is a Java Champion, Principle Software Architect at Ordina, writer, speaker, and contributor to the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile projects. In this video, he explains how Java is more than just a programming language.

Barry Burd is a Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, a Java user group leader, the author of "Java For Dummies," and a Java Champion. In this video, he explains how Java's thoughtful, elegant design makes teaching and writing a pleasure.

-----

What do you say to high school students who are interested in Computer Science? As leaders of the Garden State Java User Group, we tackled that question in March 2022. We contacted a Computer Science teacher at Madison High School (in Madison, New Jersey, US) and offered to do a presentation. We decided on an in-person visit rather than a less-engaging virtual meeting.

To prepare for the meeting, the school's Computer Science teacher polled her students. As a result, the students gave us nearly thirty questions about Java, how to study, how to keep learning, and how to choose a career in computing. Based on these questions, we selected slides from the decks created by the JCP Java in Education group. We weaved the slides and the students' questions into a lively discussion about Java and Computer Science.

At the start of the meeting, we asked the students to ask questions and make comments in real-time. We wanted the session to be a conversation, not a canned speech. In retrospect, this decision to have a two-way discussion was essential to the success of the meeting. By asking them to speak up, we acknowledged their contributions to the topic at hand.

As we expected, one of the students asked about the wordiness of the Java programming language. Why should they deal with all that syntactic baggage? We answered by reminding them that Java technology is more than a language. It's an entire ecosystem. As for the language itself, we likened it to reading. When you first learn to read, you see single letters. After a while, you stop concentrating on the letters and start seeing words. Eventually, you see beyond the words and read for the real meanings of sentences, paragraphs, and entire books.

In the same way, a novice Java programmer sees method headers, assignment statements, for statements, and other syntactic features. But an experienced developer sees beyond the syntax and understands the algorithms, the architecture, and the impact of an application.

As we ended our session, we offered to return to the high school and contribute more to the success of the school's Computer Science program. Our connection with teachers and students is more than a single visit. It's an ongoing process.

Hi Heather,

Mala: Mala is an author of multiple books on Java, talks about the history of Jetbrains, and what makes it the most popular Java IDE. She talks about how Java is a robust, secure, and relevant language and has been a life of her career.

Simon: Simon is Deptuy CTO at Azul. He is a prolific speaker who talks to a lot of developers and helps them understand Java. His early bets on Java paid off and stayed very much part of his journey from the very beginning.

Simon's video seems to be cut off in the middle. Can somebody please validate that?

Hi there, 
 
For planning purposes we will meet in April on this date to discuss Creative Coding in Java for fun and games!
 
Abstract :
 
Creative Coding is a genre that allows us to express our creativity by writing code. It is often used to create music, art, games, and even tools for creative pursuits. This is especially attractive to students who are new to programming as they learn how coding can also be used to express their creative interest, and have fun all the while building their software engineering skills. In this presentation, Suyash Joshi will present how modern Java language and related technologies (Java Libraries) can be used for this purpose. We will look at several examples of Java projects from art, music, IoT & AI that enable and inspire creative coding in Java.
 
Bio: Suyash Joshi is an professional Java developer, previously at Oracle and now at RingCentral. He is also a creative coder, STEAM Evangelist based out of San Francisco. He is also the author of a forthcoming book on Creative Coding.
