This is our yearly pilmigrade to JavaOne, where we get to meet good old friends, create new memories, and best of all, geek out for an entire week on Java! We got to learn about the big things waiting for Java (the Internet of Things), and got to talk about how people are making a difference in Java (With the adopt-a-jsr program). We got to talk to great people like Peter Pilgrim(@peter_pilgrim), Marcel Offermans (@m4rr5), Heather VanCura (@jcp_org), Bruno Souza (@brjavaman), Mattias Karlsson (@matkar) and Geert Bevin (@gbevin). In all, is a great podcast to get a feel of what has been happening at J1! (Oh, and you gotta follow them!)
So it's all the rage, and things have been getting smaller and slimmer (think your first cell phone), well, code is no different! Today we cover a trend on what is considered one of the better ways to scale, yet like everything else there are caveats. Bob is actually going to take us for a spin on creating our own MicroService by using Spring Boot!
Follow us! @fguime , and @bobpaulin
So now we deep dive into what the "Real" advantages of Java 8 are :). The lambdas were just a head-fake (to quote Randy Pausch), the real meat is all the support that was brought because of lambdas, most importantly Streams. Streams are now pervasive in Java 8, and thanks to the way it was implemented is mostly backwards compatible! Oh boy, take a listen to start really tapping into the power of Lambdas and Java 8!
