Prezentare #1 – Java Collections: The Force awakens

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… Java open source developers managed to the see the secret plans of the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the JAVA™ COLLECTIONS FRAMEWORK. Evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters investigate the performance of the Empire’s most popular weapons: LinkedList, ArrayList and HashMap. They also investigate common developer errors and bugs to help protect their vital software. With this new-found knowledge they strike back! Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents, JDuchess races home aboard her JVM, investigating proposed future changes to the Java Collections and other options such as Immutable Collections which could save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy….

Prezentare #2 – Java Generics: Past, Present and Future

Generics are one of the most complex features of Java. They are often poorly understood and lead to confusing errors. It won’t get easier. Java 10 is planned to extend Generics. It’s time to understand generics or risk being left behind. We start by stepping back to 2004 and explain why generics were introduced in the first place back. Then we travel to the present to explaining how to make effective use of Generics. We then explore various entertaining code examples and puzzlers of how Generics are used today.
