Project Loom is a new Java-based platform that allows for the creation of virtual threads. These threads can be used to speed up workflow and improve scalability. The first preview of the project will be available in March 2019.
Ron Pressler of Project Loom gives a quick overview of the platform and some of its features. He shares that his favorite language to work with on the platform is closure, and praises the App Store and Spaces for their usefulness in developing mobile apps.
