Relevance

You are going to discuss things that participants of the conference find useful not only yesterday but also today and in the future. Does this subject matter have wide appeal and application? 

Practical applicability

The content is important from a practical point of view and you not only cover the existing problems / solutions, but also share your experience.

Topics

JCON traditionally focuses on Core Java, Serverside Java, APIs and Frameworks because that's what we as Java developers work with every day. However, the main topic will be Java-Cloud-Native and Microservices because this is the future of Java and a must-have for Java developers.

Motivation

We love Java. That's why we want to bring together Java developers from all over the world. To learn, to connect, to have fun. The feedback we receive proves us right and motivates us to keep going.

Team

JCON is a team effort and a conference by developers for developers. The JUG Oberpfalz does the heavy lifting in organizing everything. But the heart of the conference are our speakers with their sessions.

Community

We often work in completely different branches, but Java is our common denominator and connects us all. Over the years, not only acquaintances but friendships have formed on account of JCON!
