It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's SDKMAN: Software Development Kit Manager

SDKMAN is the Software Development Kit Manager. It is fast becoming the defacto standard for installing JDKs and other JVM related SDKs on the CLI. It's a Free and Open Source tool with the primary purpose to making developers' lives less painful!

This talk will begin with a demo of how SDKMAN can be used in your daily workflow. We will show you how to install multiple Candidate Versions side by side and how to switch between them. We will also look at some of the other functionalities that it offers. We will then take a peek under the hood and see how SDKMAN works both in the CLI as well as the serverside backend.

Finally, we will take a look at other aspects of what SDKMAN brings, including Vendoring, Community Contribution and Future plans.

If you really don't know what SDKMAN is, or if you would like to have a peek under the hood at what it does or how it does it, this talk is a must for you!
