This is a very rapid course on Java 8 functional programming.
Functional programming has been the most importantÂ of all Java 8 new features.Â Using Java 8Â functional programming, we can now code many things much faster than before, in a concise,Â fluent andÂ readable manner. But, unless you learn those functional programming features properly, getting used to those becomes a bit confusing. So, in this course, we are going to grasp how to do functional programming in anÂ intuitive and conceptual manner, very rapidly. We'll learn each feature with simple and crisp examples, which'll be very brief but quite informative.
This course is actually part I of a two-part course. ItÂ covers about JavaÂ Lambdas, e.g. lambda expressions,Â method references, composing lambda expressionsÂ etc. The next part, which is coming soon, will be about Streams. You'll find link to that in the resources section of the last lesson.
We've done some practical exercises in the lessons here, and the links to the source codes are available in the resources section.
