Microsoft JDConf is an online Java focused conference where developers can come together to share interesting topics and stay engaged. Learn more about the latest cloud and AI development trends, best practices, tips, tricks, and more.

Microsoft’s mission is to empower every developer on the planet, and this includes Java! We welcome every Java developer around the world to this community focused event. JDConf started in 2020. We saw an amazing turnout and want to keep the engagement going.

Java is critically important to Microsoft. Not only are we building tools and services like VS Code, GitHub, GitHub Copilot, and Azure services, we’re also part of the Java Community Process and contributing back to the community. We use Java ourselves running millions of JVMs in production - from LinkedIn and Minecraft to Azure Big Data services and Yammer.

Our goal is to highlight Java expert speakers and showcase the great work that’s going on across the Java community. To support this, we invite you to submit session topics for consideration.
