Portland Java User Group - Your Brain on lambda(x)
This month's topic: Your Brain on lambda(x)
Functional programming is (again) a hot topic among developers. Languages such as Scala and Clojure have functional concepts at the core of the langauge, and even more solidly object-oriented languages such as Groovy and C# 3.0 include functional concepts. This talk will cover whether langauge really matters, some functional techiques that enhance the power of a languge, how to implement some of these using existing Java syntax and semantics, and the future of functional additions to the Java langauge.
Speaker: Phil Varner
Phil is a software developer with Oracle, working on the Business Rules component of Fusion Middleware.
PJUG meetings start with some time to eat and socialize (pizza and beverages are provided), followed by the featured speaker, then some time for Q&A, discussion, and sometimes a drawing to give away swag. :)
Though we like knowing how many people to expect, you don't have to RSVP, on Upcoming or otherwise. Go ahead and just show up!
Many people also go for drinks afterward, at a location decided on the fly (more often than not, Jax on 2nd).
