NightHacking is kicking off the new year with Brian Goetz, Java Language Architect at Oracle, providing an in-depth look at Lambdas. Watch the live stream and join the three-hour hacking session. There will be a Google Hangout setup for groups participating remotely. Find a NightHacking Meetup in your city or create your own. While you can hack in a group of any size, 5-15 is the ideal range. NightHacking will supply the Git repo and examples, you supply the coffee or beer!
NightHacking will send out the hacking materials shortly before the broadcast. Any recent JDK 8 build will work, the build of record will be b121. Follow @_nighthacking for the latest updates.

Interested in trying out the new lambda feature in Java 8? If so, this
“higher-order lab” is for you. Participants will use a recent JDK 8
development build and a recent NetBeans build that support the lambda
feature and will take part in exercises intended to teach them about the
new lambda feature of the Java programming language and the new Streams
Library API. The exercises start off very simply, so that beginners can
learn the fundamentals. Additional exercises covering grouping and
parallel reduction aim to challenge more-advanced participants.
Participants need not have any prior knowledge of Java’s lambda feature.
