55 New Features in Java SE 8


Speaker: Simon Ritter

With Java 8 only round the corner (available in March 2014), we wanted to give you a session on Java 8 and what is new that you can play with. Simon Ritter, the head Java Evangelist at Oracle, presents to us what has changed since Java 7, including lambdas, default methods, Streams and much much more.

Descriptions and discussions are followed up with code samples and examples of how the new functionality can be used. Many examples show simplification and a reduction in boiler plate since Java 7.

Slides are also up on slideshare here and the full IRC log captured during the session can be read here.
