Java 8 is out! This will be a good opportunity to take a look at the new features:
• Lambdas, Method References and Default methods
• Streams API
• JSR-310: The date and time API
We'll look at highlights from the launch party, take a look at using Lambdas with existing libraries and more.

• Eclipse JDT committer Manju Matthew on Eclipse's Java 8 support.

Info on getting there:
Peoplebank offices are on the south-west corner of Flinders Lane and Queen St. Doors lock at 6pm but someone from Peoplebank will be downstairs to let people in. If when you get there, no one is present, call [masked] and we'll send someone down. We also will be having a raffle, so when you get to Level 13, there will be someone to greet you, get a name-tag, and also put you in the raffle draw. For those driving in, there is flat rate (~$10) after hours parking on Market St, between flinders lane and flinders st.
