Event Details

Presented by

Jim Bethancourt


Java 8 is bringing a number of new features, the most well publicized being Lambda Expressions. However, there are a number of other features coming in Java 8 that will make life as a Java developer easier as well -- interfaces with method bodies and a new Time API based on the Joda Time open source library. This talk will cover how to get the most out of these new features and the new opportunities they offer.

Jim Bethancourt has been a software developer for over 8 years and has been the President of the Houston Java Users Group for 6 years. He is also SCJP 5 and SCEA 5 Certified and has spoken at the JavaOne and Houston TechFest conferences and at HJUG meetings.
