Functional programming is all the rage. It can undoubtedly produce cleaner and more expressive code, but why switch to Scala or wait for Java 8? In fact, there are many ways to dramatically improve your Java code quality by using a more functional style today. This presentation discusses how techniques such as functional programming, using fluent APIs, and other clean coding practices can make your code more concise, more readable, and much easier to maintain. But more importantly, you will learn about libraries such as LambdaJ and Google Guava that make this possible today with your existing Java code base.
