JDK 8: Lessons Learnt with Lambdas and Streams



Simon Ritter starts with a short summary of the key features of both Lambda expressions and streams before moving on to some real world examples of how to use them effectively, including a number of lessons learnt from trying to apply an imperative style of programming when it should have been functional. He finishes off with a quick look at some of the ideas for improvements to streams in JDK 9.


Simon Ritter is the Deputy CTO at AZUL Systems.
