Project Loom is a huge step forward in the way the JVM implements concurrency. It introduces a concurrency model that is straight forward to use without sacrificing scalability. It gets a lot of traction since it was released in preview mode in Java 19, however, it is not a silver bullet that will magically resolve everything. In this talk we will go through the essentials of the project and help understand when and where applying it will make your life as a Java developer significantly better.
