Course Title
Programming in Java 8

Objectives
From the programming point of view, Java 8 has had the most impact on how applications are crafted. Lambdas and Streams fundamentally change how we create applications. While we continue to make use of both the imperative style of programming and the object-oriented paradigm, we need to carefully leverage the functional style of programming that's now possible in Java. This course has been designed for developers to gain an in depth practical knowledge of Java 8 concepts so they can put them to immediate use on their projects.

Duration
