In this session you’ll learn about Oracle’s strategy for and inner workings of OpenJDK, the community where the development of open source implementations of the Java Plaform, Standard Edition takes place. We’ll dive into community participation in OpenJDK up til now & changes to make community participation easier in the future. You’ll learn what it takes to contribute code to OpenJDK effectively, and what types of contributions would be most welcome for JDK 8 – from finding the appropriate Project within the OpenJDK Community & the proper mailing list to start the first conversation, over suggesting improvements to existing or new features & coming up with a first patch, to getting your proposed changes committed and becoming a regular contributor. Finally, we’ll take a look at participating in OpenJDK as a community tester and how to go about providing feedback to the development teams.
