Refactoring to Java 8

A session at NFJS Greater Wisconsin Software Symposium

Friday 11th March, 2016

1:15pm to 2:45pm (CST)

Java SE 8 introduces many new features that can simplify your code. Using streams, lambdas, and the new Optional type all change the way we write Java. In this presentation, we'll work through a series of examples that show how to rewrite existing code from Java 7 or earlier using the new Java 8 approach.

Examples will include replacing anonymous inner classes with lambdas, switching from iterating over collections into transforming streams, using immutables wherever possible, lazy evaluation, and more.
