Learn how to stop testing everything every sprint and only test the code you’ve changed. Brought to you by Parasoft.

Just yesterday I gave a presentation together with Andrzej Grzesik, with whom we (and more friends!) organize GeeCON and the PolishJUG among other things.

This is our first time at JavaOne, and right away we got a full room of developers, eager to learn about the new stuff in JDK8. I have to admit, being a Scala guy since quite a few years, presenting about Java 8 felt a bit weird, but I’m still very happy about it – especially the JVM changes which allowed Java 8 and it’s Lambdas to happen. All these changes will not only make Java developer lives easier (less-painful), but also allow our Scala code to become loads faster! :-)

The slides from the talk are online here:

Oh, and it seems that if you link to http://oracle.com/technetwork/java/, which is the OTN website, you get a free t shirt, yay!
