Oracle recently release Java 8 almost three years after Java 7. The long awaited addition of Lambda expression seems to have been making all the buzz. But there are some quite significant other news that went under the radar.

On this GOTO night we’ll be covering some of other really great new features in Java 8, amongst
• How lambdas has changed the APIs
• Date and Time API
• Nashorn, Javascript runtime
• Project coin outcomes

If you didn’t get the lambda expression the first time, there will be a very brief introduction to how that has changed the language.

Speaker: Martin Westergaard Lassen

    I am sorry about the last minute notice but I've been feeling run down all day after a long weekend trip away and need to head home asap to rest. I hope I can make it next time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
