We went to one of the best sources to learn what's happening with Var and Java 10, @stuartmarks! Also, what has been (and is being deprecated) on Java 10, and 11. And little inside perspective of having a new java version every six months!

Included is a the "convConvenience Factory Methods for Collections" List.of, Set.of, Map.of that @stuartmarks did for Java 9! (and his new contributions for Java 10). And a interesting trick of the non-deterministic order of unmodifiable sets! (A Stuart Marks special!)

So come and listen to this episode which contains great tips and tricks directly from one of the contributors to the Java Programming Language API!

Episode 70. Let's put puzzles together. Using Java 9's Jigsaw!

Episode 70. Let's put puzzles together. Using Java 9's Jigsaw!
It was both the most anticipated and (one of the) most controversial features in Java 9. What's the bruhaha all about? What is Jigsaw (or the Java Platform Module System)? What does it bring? Can I use it? And if so, why would I use it? All these questions are answered as we dive into the history of JSR-376 (it has been years in the making). And since Jigsaw is so big, there might be a two-parter for us! So stay tuned!
