Design for Quality in Java 8 / 16:30 - 16:45

Object Oriented programming has existed for almost 60 years and is still the largest paradigm in computer science.

In this talk I will show you how you can use the new features of Java 8 to increase maintainability, testability and reusability of your software systems as well as introduce a few existing patterns from other programming languages to Java.
