-Introduction to Java 8 java.time
Java 8 will be shortly launching and this is a great opportunity to take a tour through the API and see the new features.
There will be a short presentation followed by live coding.
Jim Gough has worked with java.time for several years on the Adopt A JSR program for the London Java Community.
-Twins: FP and OOP
Object-Oriented Programming has well established design principles, such as SOLID. For many developers architecture and functional programming are at odds with each other: they don’t know how their existing tricks of the trade convert into functional design. This problem becomes worse as hybrid languages such as Scala, Java 8 and Ruby become common. We’ll talk about how functional programming helps you implement the SOLID principles, and how a functional mindset can actually help you achieve the holy grail of OO, encapsulation.
Richard Warburton is an empirical technologist and solver of deep-dive technical problems. Recently he has been working on data analytics for high performance computing and has written a book on Java 8 Lambdas for O’Reilly. He is a leader in the London Java Community and organised the Adopt-a-JSR programs for Java 8 and runs the Openjdk Hackdays. Richard is also a known conference speaker, having talked at JavaOne, JFokus, Devoxx, Geecon and JAX London. Previously he worked on static analysis problems and compilers and has obtained a PhD in Computer Science from The University of Warwick.
