The presentation I gave at Jazoon is now available online. It suffered a bit from the converstion to PDF, but it’s still readable. Note that I tend to write slides with less text and bigger fonts, so a lot of the content is not captured in these slides, but this will be enough to give you an idea.

In this presentation, I gave a fast and furious tour of the programming languages that you have seen on front pages recently, some of which are seen as potential successors to Java. I also make the point that despite these claims, I don’t see any language dethrone Java for a very long time. My prediction is that Java will keep cherry picking the best features from all these languages and continue to adapt to meet the challenges of tomorrow, either at the language level (unlikely to change much) or via frameworks (much more likely).
