You’ve probably heard the buzz about functional programming. As a Java developer, you may have glanced at how other languages on the JVM solve many problems in a simpler, more elegant way by using the functional paradigm. Lambdas in Java 8 will address many of these issues, but what is less known is that it's actually possible to leverage some of the functional-style techniques even today.
In this session, you’ll learn about real-world experiences with functional frameworks such as LambdaJ, Functional Java and Guava. What should you consider before adopting them? How do they compare against one another? If you want to be prepared for the functional future of Java 8, getting to know these techniques now will put you ahead of the curve!
