    Functional programming has started (re)gaining prominence in recent years, and with good reason too. Functional programs lend an elegant solution to the concurrency problem, result in more modular systems, are more concise and are easier to test. While modern languages like Scala and Clojure have embraced the functional style whole-heartedly, Java has lagged a bit behind in its treatment of functions as first-class citizens. With the advent of Java 8 and its support for lambdas, however, Java programmers can finally start reaping the power of functional programs as well. Even without Java 8, it is possible to adopt a functional style with the aid of excellent libraries such as Guava.

    This talk will explore how to apply functional concepts using the Java programming language and demonstrate how it can result in simpler, more elegant designs. We will conduct this in a hands-on workshop style with attendants being encouraged to code-along. So bring your favorite Java 8 aware IDE, an open mind and prepare to have a lot of fun.
