Power of Clean Code -Olivier Gaudin
- Better predicitiblity and repeatability
- Empahsis on tooling doesn’t yet help us developer better software.
- Necessary, but not sufficient. Need great code.
- 42% dev time spent remediating bd code and tech debt
- 59% devs believe too much time is spent debugging vs innovating
- Software rewrites cost 3X more than estiated
- 90% security incidents from poor coding practices
- Quick feedback loops are more recent.
- Developers should own code. For existing code, clean over time. Quality gates ensure new/touched code is clean. After year, should have touched 20% of code. Ater five years, 40-50% clean.
- Happy devs, happy teams

Community Sharat Chander
- Did survey on how long people using Java. A lot were 10+ and 20+. And a good number of 27 years folks!
- 1.8 million stak overflow qustions
- 360 user groups
- 355 Java champions. 50 new this year
- 1 million Java certs (hit this year)
- had JUG leaders and Java champions stand. Now I see why he wanted us in the front!
- Bruno Souza – lifetime achievement award. Nice to see he had his Brazilian flag cape on
I like that Oracle blocked off the back half of the room on entry so people sit further up. And also that they had reserved seating for JUG leaders and Java Champions. Finally, I like that they had closed captioning in the keynote. The content represented a good kickoff. Lots of ground covered and lots of announcements
