Java SE 8 (JDK 8) introduced a fundamentally new way of programming in Java with the introduction of Lambda expressions.
Lambda provides a simple way to pass functionality as an argument to another method, such as what action should be taken when someone clicks a button, or how to sort a set of names. Lambda expressions enable you to do this, to treat functionality as a method argument, or code as data.
You may have heard about Lambda expressions, and are curious what impact it will have on you as a Java developer.
This course is designed to answer your questions and more.
Have you ever wondered what Lambda expressions are in Java?
Have you ever wanted to write parallel code in Java without worrying about threads and locking?
Have you ever wanted to process collections of data without using loops?
Have you ever wanted to do functional programming in Java?
All of these questions will be answered in this practical hands-on MOOC. This course introduces two major new changes to the Java platform: Lambda expressions and the Stream API. For details please visit the registration page here.
