Monthly Java Meetup: Java 8 Lambdas!

  • Aug 19, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

RSVPs are open! This month's theme: Java 8 Lambdas.

This month our featured speaker will be Timothy Fagan, who will give a presentation on the most eagerly anticipated Java feature since Java 5: Lambdas.  There have been some major changes since early ideas on how Lambdas would look in Java, but now that Java 8 is feature complete, the syntax and APIs are available.  This presentation will teach you everything you need to know to start working with Lambdas in Java 8, so no Java developer should miss it.

Dario Laverde will also do a surprise demo featuring Lambdas.

If anyone would like to do a lightning talks, please contact the organizers or come prepared to speak at the meeting.  We are always open to presentations or demos on anything related to Java (preferably on our theme this month) running anywhere between 5 minutes and an hour, on a first come basis.

A special thanks to PulsePoint for providing a location, pizza and refreshments, and to O'Reilly and Pearson for providing door prizes.

Note: for future reference, we generally meet the 3rd Monday of each month.

      I would try to explain it but I wouldn't do it any justice. There were so many changes. The big takeaways were the lambda, the for each loop replacing for/while loops, the stream collection (amazing), the ::, iterating through zip files, and the functional interface. He didn't have enough time to explain virtual extensions. Java world has a pretty good explanation.

      I blogged about it (http://www.selikoff.n...­). Not as good as being there, but better than nothing. Most of the slides are in the photos.
