This month, Daniel Lissner will do an overview of some new features of Java 1.8 and work on some code examples to demonstrate the goodness! Details at MemphisJug.org. For additional discussion and announcements visit the Memphis JUG Google group.

Yeah, definitely a big thanks to Diane and VACO for feeding the nerds (despite the sign saying not to). I am definitely digging Joel's functional programming talks. Incidentally, I had mentioned a blog post about Java's past resistance to functions: http://steve-yegge.blogspot.com/2006/03/execution-in-kingdom-of-nouns.html
Also checkout videos by Neal Ford re: Functional Thinking and Martin Odersky, creator of Scala. Odersky has a free video course at Coursera that I think is also viewable on YouTube.

Thank you Diane and vaco for sponsoring, and Southwest for hosting this Meetup. Thanks Joel for the interesting talk on java testing and thank you Daniel for the interesting and informative talk on new features of Java 1.8 as well as covering conceptual ideas. Thanks to everyone who turned out and added so much to the group!

I accidentally scheduled the Unity workshop the same day as the JUG meeting so I won't be able to attend this time. Won't make the same mistake next time!
