First Coimbra JUG meeting – The new Java 8 Features

posted by Roberto Cortez on

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.

After a quick intro to the JUG by myself, explaining the JUG objective and purposes, we had Samuel Santos from PT.JUG to share some of his experience running and managing the biggest JUG in Portugal.

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.

If you’re curious, here are the materials (in portuguese):

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.

Feel free to comment 🙂

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my blog, and thank you for the visit. Please take some time to read my About me page.

I have created this blog to share any Java related topic to anyone that may care. For me, it would be useful to improve my English and keep a record of stuff I work and do. I usually forget a lot of stuff!

Anyway… Enjoy!
