Oracle recently launched Java 8 to the world ( March 25, 2014), announcing the revolutionary release of the world's #1 development platform. It is the single largest upgrade ever to the programming model, with coordinated core code evolution of the virtual machine (JVM), core java language, and libraries. Java 8 introduces significant productivity and performance enhancements, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance. Java is the platform of choice for the Internet of Things, cloud, mobile, and social application development, with Java 8 providing the path for platform standardization.
With Java 8, developers are uniquely positioned to extend innovation through the largest, open, standards-based, community-driven platform -- spanning from small devices to cloud-based development. For all you developers out there, a new Java Virtual Developer day is now scheduled and you are more than welcome to join for free. @ oracle.6connex.com/portal/java2014EMEA
