First Coimbra JUG meeting – The new Java 8 Features
Last Thursday, 19 December 2013, the first ever meeting of Coimbra JUG was held on the Department of Informatics Engineering of the University of Coimbra, in Portugal. I couldn’t be more proud, more than 50 people attended the event.
The highlight of the meeting was the my talk about the new features in Java 8, especially lambdas. I think that most of the people enjoyed it, but maybe it was not that interesting for the folks that already use lambdas or equivalents on other languages. Also a lesson learned for me.
You can find more photos of the event on our Meetup page. We also have a few videos that I’m uploading right now. I’ll update the post when I’m done.
A special thanks to Jetbrains for giving away 2 free licenses of IntelliJ 13 to raffle among the participants. Congratulations to the lucky winners of Math.random(), Hugo Lopes and Luis Rosa.
