JavaOne 2015 Recap + Functional Programming in Java
Wednesday, November 18th, 2015
6:30 - 8:30 PM
James Velasco and Jim Bethancourt
There were lots of big announcements, fancy demos, and technical sessions at JavaOne this year -- come and hear about the best of them! There was plenty of excitement about what's coming in Java 9, Java EE 8, and running apps in containers. There was more was going on that you'll want to learn about as well.
We'll also learn about the functional programming paradigm of telling your code what to do instead of how to do it is now much easier with the language and library features available in Java 8. Come and learn how this style of writing code is easier to read, easier to write, and easier to scale on your hardware!
James Velasco is the Chief Computer Scientist at INT and has been a past speaker at HJUG and JavaONE, and is a current member of the JCP.
Jim Bethancourt is a Sr. Software Developer at Triple Point Technology, and has led the Houston Java Users Group since 2007. He has given talks at the Houston JUG and at JavaOne.
