Java 8 Features

How Java 8 drove developer adoption

Among other features, Java 8 gave us functional interfaces and lambda expressions - it made Java feel modern, almost like Lisp. 

An additional powerful capability that was introduced in Java 8 was the Streams API, which allowed developers to program to streams and collections in ways that is more modern and useful. 

The new features introduced with Java 8 changed how we program. It drove strong developer-led adoption, as developers wanted to program using these new features.
