The Java Pub Quiz

Methodology & Culture

Oh yes, the one-and-only Java Pub Quiz is back!

Test your knowledge about the programming language we all love: Java!

With fun and interesting questions presented in a fast-paced pub quiz style which cover a wide range of Java related subjects. Bring a friend or just join up.

We've got beer for everyone and prizes for the winning team. It will be huge fun! Maximum number of participants: 100 people, first-come first-served. We'll make teams on the spot.

Three years in a row the Java Pub Quiz at Devoxx was a great success (last year we received a rating with score of 4.9 out of 5)! In this quiz it’s all about having fun and digging in your brain to find where you stored the most obscure Java knowledge you have. We'll present around thirty questions in quick succession and allow teams to submit answers and compete for a funny prize. As this is a pub quiz, we will make the quiz interesting by having different types of question rounds (e.g. guess the framework, picture rounds, debug this code, etc).

We'll also provide complementary beers and play music to bring attendees the real pub experience.

Scheduled on Thursday from 12:45 to 13:45 (Europe/Brussels) in BOF 1
