Functional Programming with Java 8

The recording of our March 12th webinar featuring Venkat Subramaniam, Functional Programming with Java 8, is now available on JetBrains YouTube Channel.

In this presentation, we 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.

    I think Venkat’s important strength is in making topics easy to understand despite your professional level while also keeping your attention focused. The iterative style of presentation, moving from imperative to declarative style of programming in small and easy to follow steps is really helfpul.
