*JDK8 Massive Open and Online Course: Lambdas and Streams Introduction*


*Start Date*: 14-JUL-2015 03:00:00 PM



*Java SE 8 (JDK8) *introduced a fundamentally new way of programming in
Java with the introduction of Lambda expressions.

Lambda provides a simple way to pass functionality as an argument to
another method, such as what action should be taken when someone clicks
a button, or how to sort a set of names. Lambda expressions enable you
to do this, to treat functionality as a method argument, or code as data.

You may have heard about Lambda expressions, and are curious what impact
it will have on you as a Java developer.

This course is designed to answer your questions and more.

Have you ever wondered what Lambda expressions are in Java?
Have you ever wanted to write parallel code in Java without worrying
about threads and locking?
Have you ever wanted to process collections of data without using loops?
Have you ever wanted to do functional programming in Java?

All of these questions will be answered in this practical hands-on
*MOOC*. This course introduces two major new changes to the Java
platform: Lambda expressions and the Stream API.

*Presented by: *Simon Ritter
