Live Webinar: Functional Programming with Java 8, March 26th

Join us Wednesday, March 26th, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM GMT (7:00 AM – 8:00 AM EDT) for our webinar, Functional Programming with Java 8, featuring Dr. Venkat Subramaniam.

With the release of Java 8, the biggest change is going to be in the programmers mind. In addition to the new syntax for lambda expressions and method references, a significant paradigm shift awaits us.

In this presentation, we will discuss how Java 8 now facilitates a functional style of programming and why we should care about it. Using multiple examples, during this live coding session, we will explore the strengths and benefits of the new Java 8 language features.

Space is limited, please register now.

      This was a difficult one to fit into our scheduling. We don’t have any plans to hold a second session at the moment but we will record the webinar and publish it on our JetBrainsTV YouTube Channel. Stay tuned to this blog and @JetBrains to find out when it becomes available, normally within a few days after the event. Thank you for your interest in joining us.

    Another vote for letting us PDT folks know when it’s up on YouTube. I’m an early riser, but not 4 a.m. early. 🙂

    Just wanted to say that I’ve seen Venkat talk at one of my local user groups, and he’s great… I encourage everyone to check this out if they’re able. 🙂
