Hi, am a java beginner but have been programming in php for over 5 years. I have been watching a couple of video on stream and lambda in java 8 by Dr. Venkat Subramaniam and am really tempted to drive into it.
Do you think it is a good idea to jump into functional programming...learning about lambda and stream or to continue practicing java 7 and below till am completely good enough to start functional programming.

My opinion would be if you're interested, dive on in.

The argument for being "good enough" to start functional programming is IMO a fallacy.
Functional programming is quite a different think space from procedural / object oriented.

In fact you will potentially find functional programming easier to pick up without having your thinking affected with concepts from "regular" java 7 programming.
