The weather here is beautiful but muggy. I’ve got that holiday feeling now that the exams are over and lots of my business students‘ thoughts are turning to Majorca. I went to an interesting talk on the new features that will be included in Java 8 last night hosted by the Java User Group Münster. Pretty much wall to wall guys…but that’s IT for you! They all seem very nice and polite anyway.
Interesting to note that something called anonymous functions will be included in Java 8. A quick check on wikipedia confirmed that these are part of the programming language LISP, a language I learned on my artificial intelligence masters course back in 1994. Nice to know that nothing is really that new.
