Java 8 Features Demystified

Not since Java 5's introduction of Generics and the Collections API has a Java release been so highly anticipated. Join us to learn about some new and powerful features of the Java SE 8 platform. Chief among the new features are Lambda expressions allowing Java developers to take advantage of today's multicore processors.

We'll walk through examples that will demystify new syntax, and you'll learn about backward compatibility.
