What is LJC about?
The LJC is a broad community of technologists and other associates with Java and JVM-related technologies. Although it is based in London, UK – it has some international membership due to its global programmes (such as Adopt a JSR and Adopt OpenJDK). The LJC hosts regular events including casual catch-ups in a cafe, hack days, evening talks, unconferences, workshops, mentoring, demos, a career mentoring by London’s
Java specialists and much more.
The LJC acts as a voice for Java engineers in London UK as well as globally. This includes but is not limited to creating Adoptium, the world’s leading OpenJDK distribution, representing Java developers worldwide on the Java standards body, and contributing towards charitable works.

Sponsor the LJC
The LJC has a multitude of events and global initiatives impacting hundreds of thousands of developers due to the generosity of Recworks, volunteers and key sponsors. You can donate directly or talk to us about a sponsorship package.
Since it’s inception, RecWorks have always invested in and sponsored the London Java Community both in terms of time and money to power the events. Over the years that relationship has now become more official in that for any placement which came through an LJC event, RecWorks now gives a % of all the placements back to the community.
