-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.

Bio: 

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.

Bio: 

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.
