Barcelona will host JBCNCONF, the congress of Java programmers, at the end of May


The fifth edition of the event will be held on 27, 28 and 29 in the CCIB of Barcelona

The Java programmers congress JBCNCONF will celebrate its fifth edition at the International Convention Center of Barcelona (CCIB) on 27, 28 and 29 May and will be attended by more than 600 attendees and 70 speakers.

The event is sponsored by companies from various sectors but with a close relationship with the programming and development of software such as Red Hat, Codurance, Casumo, Oracle Netsuite, Newrelic, Scopely, Glovo and Mango.

Java is a programming language chosen by companies such as Google, IBM or Mastercard for the creation of websites and mobile applications, being present in more than 15,000 million electronic devices in the world such as mobile phones, game consoles, computers, tablets or even supercomputers.

JBCNConf speakers will discuss the great advances that Java has experienced in recent years as the programming language chosen by more than nine million developers worldwide.

The JBCNConf is a meeting point for programmers, developers and software professionals who come together to network and learn about the Java world and its latest developments.

The JBCNConf organization has focused in 2019 on promoting computer programming and software development among new generations through JBCN4KIDS, a series of practical workshops in which children and teenagers will discover the programming work behind video games or web pages.
