Going Reactive with Java 8
& What is New in Java 8

Presented by James Ward & Jeanne Hiesel


Going Reactive with Java 8:
Non-blocking, asynchronous, and reactive programming models are all the rage today. This session will explore in-depth why these patterns are important in modern apps. We will drill down and see how to apply them to event-driven web, mobile, and RESTful apps. To illustrate the concepts, we will use Java, Scala, Akka, and the Play Framework as examples.

What is New in Java 8:
Are you wondering what is going to be in Java 8? So are we. The features being added in Java 8 as known in early 2014 will be reviewed/detailed. The first Java8 candidate was released on Feb 5th.

The Java 8 Launch is scheduled for 25 March 2014 and will include some features that were planned for Java 7 but later deferred. Language-level support for lambda expressions (officially, lambda expressions; unofficially, closures) A JavaScript runtime to allow embedding of JavaScript code within applications Annotations on Java Types Date and Time API.
