At first glance, we get excited about lambdas. But soon, as we begin to program in Java 8, we begin to realize that the real power is packed into the streams. This presentation focuses on streams, discusses what they are, and looks at how they differ from the common collections. You will also learn about the usage patterns and the benefits of designing APIs with streams.
