Java 8

12 hours
Java has been significantly changed in version 8. Many long-planned features were introduced in the language, making it more functional. Using these features requires new approaches to programming and a deep understanding of new principles.

This training is designed to help participants understand the new features of Java 8. The course covers lambda expressions, data streams, stream data processing with map-filter-reduce approach, asynchronous programming and DateTime API. Every key area has a number of practical exercises that allows participants to practice what they learned.
Target Audience:
The training is designed for Java developers.
To introduce developers to the new features in Java 8.
