Topic: The Power and Perils of Parallel Streams

"If streams can be parallel, why not make them parallel all the time?" is a common question from developers getting introduced to Java 8 streams. In this talk we'll take on three separate topics. 1. When to consider parallelization and when not to. 2. How to parallelize, how to decide on number of threads, and how to control the threads pool. 3. Learn about some common mistakes people make when using parallel streams. The goal of this talk is for us to learn when and how to make good use of parallel streams.
