JFuture is an engineering conference that aims to provide high quality content for backend engineers, who primarily use Java for their work, open source and hobby projects. At JFuture we also try to combine tech talks with presentations about science and art.

Previous JFuture editions took place in Minsk, Belarus and were organized with the support of the local Java and Kotlin communities. This year the conference comes to Tallinn, Estonia and will be held on October 2.

We believe that diversity of speakers and topics will make our event better.

JFuture aims to provide the community with the best resources on Java every year.

The videos of the talks will be shared for free with attendees and community worldwide.

Videos of talks from 2019.

We are looking forward to your proposals!

CFP Description

At JFuture we are looking for the following content types: talks, keynote talks, workshops.

Your proposals should include as many details as possible about the topic and format for the presentation. Vague and overly broad proposals don’t showcase your skills and knowledge. The more you can tell us, the more likely the proposal will be selected.

COVID-19 & JFuture 2020

We fully understand that the current situation with the COVID-19 outbreak pretty much affects the travel plans though we hope that by October it will have been stabilized and we will be able to celebrate our Java fest.

In the worst scenario if the virus situation doesn't improve we plan to conduct the event online. Would you consider such an option in this case? Please let us know in the relevant CFP section.

The audience - 500+ Java & related technologies engineers (all levels, but mostly mid-senior developers).

We will be glad to consider your submission on one of the topics below. If you want to talk about something different but still relevant to the conference primary subject, feel free to propose your talk.
