Streams in JDK 8: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

BOF (Bird of a Feather)

java Java Language


Wednesday from 21:00 til 22:00

The streams API combined with lambda expressions, both introduced in JDK 8, provide a way for developers to use a functional style of programming for the first time in Java. As with all powerful features like this, it is easy to abuse them and produce code that is difficult to read and hard to maintain.

In this BoF we’ll use examples of streams to discuss whether the code is good, bad or ugly and talk about ways the code could be changed. No doubt, this will lead to some interesting discussions!

If you have examples of stream code you think would be good to discuss please feel free to bring them along.
