Date: This event took place live on April 23 2014

Presented by: Richard Warburton

Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.

There's a revolution calling! Lambda expressions are coming in Java 8 but how can developers benefit? We'll go through a series of code examples, that show how to:

  • Use the new lambda expressions feature
  • Write more readable and faster collections processing code using the Streams API
  • Build complex data processing systems with the new collector abstraction
  • Use lambda expressions in your own code
