    Backend | Java 21 releases one of the most anticipated features, virtual threads, and previews structured concurrency. It rethinks the way multithreading works in Java. It was born out of the idea that reactive Java is too complicated and blocking threads has to be cheap. Resulting in the new virtual threads that we run thousands of! The aim of virtual threads and structured concurrency is to have high-throughput lightweight threads and new programming models on the Java platform. In this talk, I will demonstrate virtual threads and how to create and manage them using structured concurrency. Furthermore, I'll provide some practical advice to avoid pitfalls when you start using virtual threads in your application.

I know, but this statement is based on a research and thorough analysis of the past 26 years of web development, the recurring patterns that affected the transition between web technologies and the current trends and direction things are going towards. All signs show that we’re at the beginning of a new generation of web frameworks.. and the first framework of this new generation is Qwik, which has reached v1.0 "Why should we care about it?" Qwik allows JavaScript developers to write any size app and have it load instantly, with no extra effort. It completely eliminates the need to manually optimize your app for performance, and that pays dividends especially as your app grows. Businesses gain better SEO ranking, conversions and User experience while developers can focus on building features instead of chasing after performance issues. Basically, Qwik introduces the same revolution that video streaming brought to the world. So if we don't want to become the next ""Blockbuster"" in the Netflix story, we need to understand the next evolution in web development and how to adapt to it. In this talk, we'll cover the past, present and future of web development, but more importantly, we'll get an awesome introduction to this new and innovative framework and the cool & new technology behind it.
