Benefiting from Java 9 Improvements

Mention Java 9 and everyone immediately thinks of Modularization. While that's quite important, Java 9 contains many other improvements to the language and the JDK. In this presentation we will dive into the language level improvements and also the changes related to the streams API and functional style of programming. The objective of this presentation is to help developers make better use of Java 9 from the language, the JDK, and functional programming point of view.
