Type Inference: Friend or Foe

Abstract:
Java 10 has local variable type inference, but type inference is not really new in Java. Is type inference good or it is it bad. Are there challenges to use them? When is a good time to use type inference? What are some of the limitations to using it. This presentation includes the details of Java 10 type inference, but certainly will not limit to it. We will step back and discuss type inference from the programmer point of view and work thought the benefits and caveats. At the end of this presentation you will be able to decide when to use it and where to avoid it.

Improving moved to 5445 Legacy Dr. in Plano. This is the Northwest corner of Legacy and Hedgcoxe. It doesn't have great signage right now so here is a picture of the south side of the building (the side facing Legacy) where you should park and enter.

A couple of things:

• Doors will be locked after 6:00 PM but we will be monitoring the south doors until the meeting starts at 7:00 PM.

• After that or if you can't get in before then and no one is watching text (469)[masked].

• There is parking on the north side of the building too.

Hope to see everyone there.
