Hello guys,

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read at this post, I have a couple simple questions. I'm taking SCJP exam on May, have not read that much about the new Java release (although I'm very interested to learn).
What do you think are the major advantages and benefits having lambda expressions compared against other popular programming languages?
Also I would like to know your thoughts about the best learning path for this new features of Java from a novice perspective

Thanks again!
Regards

Hi Carlos,

To have a quick idea of the benefits of lambdas in 10min, I suggest you watch the video we made on this topic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd-sqHjmfB0

In a nutshell, it lets you write more concise code and cope for requirement changes.

The best learning path is to read our book ;-) Otherwise I'd recommend watching a few lectures/videos on youtube. This website will give you a quick access to all java 8 updates: http://www.techempower.com/blog/2013/03/26/everything-about-java-8/
