Mary had a little Lambda

Grand Ballroom - Salon A/B

Lambda expressions are coming in Java 8 and dramatically change the programming model. They allow new syntactic patterns that were not possible before, increasing the expressiveness and power of the Java language. In this presentation, you will learn how to take advantage of the new lambda-enabled Java 8 APIs including enhanced collections, functional interfaces, and simplified event handlers. Start using these in your application today leveraging the latest OpenJDK builds so you can prepare for the future Java 8 release.
