Simon Ritter: Project Lambda: Functional Programming Constructs in Java

You might assume that lambda expressions are simply a more syntactically compact form of inner classes, but, in fact, the implementation of lambda expressions is substantially different and builds on the invokedynamic feature added in Java SE 7. This session explains the ideas behind lambda expressions, how they will be used in Java SE 8 and look at some of the details of their implementation. Filmed at JAX London 2013.
