In this session we will explore the journey of migrating major services from JDK 8 to JDK 11 using Amazon Corretto, Amazon's no-cost distribution of OpenJDK.

We will walk through the code and dependency changes required to migrate services to JDK 11, how we measured performance, and how we safely deployed such a significant update across multiple regions in production.
