I am writing this out from frustration in trying to understand the “wide ecosystem” of Java. There is always something new to learn about this language in each new release, and moreover I can't see where the official new releases are coming from, so I can well be a part of it and see how the language is evolving and also I cannot find a community with java developers actively engaged in discussing Java in real time. I know this forum is good, but I feel like it's too big, one feels like a fish in an ocean.
So my questions are:
- What are the official resources to go to so I easily see what's new on the language on each release and learn them?
- What organisation can I follow on GitHub to be seeing in realtime as the language is evolving so I can also contribute and be a part of it.
- Finally, what platform can one be a part of that has java developers actively discussing?
