    It was a great presentation. Jim was obviously very experienced and knowledgeable on the topic. I already knew about the introduction of lambda functions and some APIs like the Time/Date and Base64 APIs that were introduced in Java 8, but I was not aware of Streams, so that was cool new stuff for me to learn. The presentation was well-structured and covered many topics in the allotted two hours. I would have loved if Jim would have dived a little bit deeper into the implementation of lambdas, but there were only two hours to talk about all of the new features in Java 8. The bottom line take away I got from the presentation is that Java 8 introduces many great new features that make the language more robust and more fun to develop applications. I can't wait until I get to start using Java 8 in my current job!
