As the update window likes to remind us, “3 billion devices run Java”. Many think of Java as a safe, cosy language, often for new programmers. Using examples with surprising behaviour, this talk will discuss how to avoid falling into subtle traps in the Java language, particularly in arithmetic expressions and class construction. We will also explore how future languages could improve on the design of Java. You will be able to take away some Java programming best practice, and some flaws in its design.
