April 2014 Meeting - Exploring Java 8

This month, we will explore Java 8, the latest edition to Java platform.  Java 8 introduced numerous language features and API changes.  While some changes are merely surface deep, others introduce fundamental changes to language idioms that will have profound effects on how Java is used in the foreseeable future.  For the April 2014 meeting, presenter, Vladimir Vivien, will cover the changes and features of Java 8 that will most likely impact your day-to-day development activities.
