With the launch of Java 8, the language has just gained one of the must-have features for functional programming: functions (specifically, lambda expressions). This month, in association with Functional Brighton, we'll do a live-coding exploration of what this looks like, and what it gives you, including a look at streams in Java 8.
There will also be a brief summary of Java 8's other features and whether it is time to switch.
We'll be meeting at the Skiff, with doors open at 7pm, and talks starting around 7:45. RSVP to help us get an idea of numbers. Beer, pizza and soft drinks will be available courtesy of Brandwatch, who are sponsoring this month's event.
