Visiting a conference is a very interesting experience. Plus you can meet some interesting people, hear what’s in hype, learn some new stuff and ask questions. On the other side, due to a budget and/or (what’s missing the most) available time, sometimes it’s not easy to participate to a conference. Nevertheless, this does not have to mean that you should not be able to watch online recordings of some of the interesting talks and presentations. If you search the internet and particularly Youtube, you will be surprised how much interesting stuff is available there. And all for free. Of course, what’s not free – is your free time. 🙂 You’ll have to find some and invest it in widening your horizons.
Since recently it somehow became a practice that many conferences (even big ones) publish recordings of the talks. In the Java world as well. So, if you have some time, you can enjoy recordings of major Java conferences and top industry speakers presentations. In this post I’ll share some links to Youtube playlists with recordings of Java conferences from 2015.
