First Presentation: Java 8 Type Annotations - Todd Schiller
Java 8 introduces new type annotation syntax (JSR 308) permitting annotations to appear on any use of a type. Type annotations provide exciting new opportunities for tooling such as detecting additional classes of errors at compile-time. In his presentation, Todd will provide an overview of the new type annotation syntax, tools for leveraging type annotations, and type annotation design patterns.
Todd Schiller runs FinLingua, a financial software consultancy. As a PhD student at the University of Washington, his work included research on the Checker Framework, a framework for enhancing Java's type system with custom type annotations and checkers.

Second Presentation: Dark corners of Java 8 - Timothy Fagan
We've all read and learned about Lambda Expressions and the Stream API, but this presentation will show you some of the exciting new features in Java 8 that will change how you write software going forward.
Timothy Fagan is a regular at our JUG, many of you came to his Lambda Expression presentation last October.
Third Presentation: Nashorn - Viktor Gamov
There is a perception in the Java community that JavaScript is a second-league interpreted language with the main purpose of making Web pages a little prettier. But JavaScript is a powerful, flexible, dynamically typed language. And today language has been experiencing its a revival driven by the interest in HTML5. Nashorn is a modern JavaScript engine available in Java 8. In this session you'll get introduced to Nashorn.
Viktor Gamov is a Senior software engineer in Farata Systems. He is a co-organizer of the Princeton Java Users Group and co-author of the O’Reilly book on Enterprise Web Development. Viktor presented at various international conferences ( on Java and JavaScript related topics.
In addition to these great presentations there will be door prizes and networking, so make sure to mark your calendars and RSVP today!
And a special thanks to Pearson for the books!
