jbang: Unleash the power of Java for shell scripting | DevNation Tech Talk

Scripting is not something you do with Java. You use bash, python, groovy, kotlin, or something else other than Java. What if I told you that it does not need to be that way? Since January 2020 there has been a way to use Java as a language for scripting. No maven, no gradle, no scaffolding–just a single .java file that can use external libraries and you are off the races. This session will cover how jbang came to be, what challenges it solves, and how it helps you to explore and teach Java.
