For the March meetup of the Jersey City JUG, Angie Jones presented Modern Java: Beyond Version 8.

As a software development coach, I work with clients no matter what their code is written in. When they’re using Java, it’s rarely a recent JDK. And with the advent of OpenJDK, the JDK situation itself has gotten a bit harder to follow.

Angie’s talk filled us in on some of the major new goodies since Java 8. You might come away motivated to keep up with the latest and take full advantage in your code.
