Java 8 concepts

Do you want to learn the fundamentals of the Java 8 programming platform? Would you like to be able to understand how to make use of the latest Java 8 functional programming features? Maybe you're on a new project which is based on Java 8 and you'd like a gentle introduction to how the Java 8 platform hangs together?

Then this course is for you!

We take you from knowing absolutely nothing about Java 8, assuming just a basic to intermediate level knowledge of Java, and take you through each concept in the Java 8 platform, step by step, from first principles.

In this course you'll be introduced to and come to understand:

  • What's new in Java 8 (and why you should take notice!)
  • Lambda Expressions (what they are and how to use them)
  • Functional Interfaces (why they're important and what role they play)
  • Function Descriptors (a handy tool for understanding lambdas and functional interfaces)
  • Method References (the different types and how to use and apply them)
  • Default Methods (what they are, why they were introduced and where to use them)
  • Pipelines and Streams (understanding through example)
  • Optionals and the Optionals API (what they're for and how to use them)

This course is a concise, no-nonsense guide to Java 8 which explains just enough detail so that you can absorb and understand the core concepts and get you up and running, quickly and effectively with coding in Java 8.

We cover theory of Java 8 and functional programming from the very beginning and do this step by step so you're comfortable with the main foundational concepts.  Then we jump into live coding where we use the constructs we've just learned and apply the principles in practice.  In this way you get to understand the foundational features of Java 8 and then apply them in practise.

Jump in today and let's discover all about Java 8 together - I can't wait to teach you everything I know about it inside!
