Jump-Starting Lambda Programming

You’ve probably heard about the new Lambda feature that’s going to be in Java 8. What might not be obvious is why Lambda is important and how you can use it effectively. This session re-examines familiar programming constructs, taking apart several simple examples and putting them together in a new, “Lambda-ready” (functional) style.

It also shows how this powerful alternative style provides greater flexibility for structuring programs and easing the transition into parallel programming. Finally, it introduces Lambda itself, which is when it will become clear why the Lambda construct is important and how effective it can be when used in this style. There will be no math in this session. Well, maybe just a little.
