2.Java Puzzlers NG: The Strange, The Bizarre and the Wonderful

Not sure about you, but working with Java 8 made me lose all of my hair and most of my sleep (or was it the jet lag?). If you still havent reached the level of Brian Goetz in mastering lambdas and strings, this session is for you. And if you think you have, heres some bad news for you: you should attend as well. Youll see some surprising, bizarre, and inconceivable parts of Java 8, so you wont be (too) surprised when they hit you in production. Like any other puzzlers session, this one consists lots of puzzling questions, answers from the audience, t-shirts flying around, and a lot of funall for one purpose: to make you understand Java 8 better.
