Eclipse users need to do a few extra steps to get Java 8 development going

1) Download Eclipse Kepler (4.3.2) SR2. SR2 is required!

2) Open Eclipse and go to Help -> Install new software

3) In the "Work with" field, write: http://build.eclipse...es/4.3-P-builds

4) Check and install Eclipse Java 8 Support (for Kepler SR2)

I have this image of Raynes as the Lambda Monster


"Lambdas! Om nom nom nom! Nummy lambdas!"

I think this might not be entirely inaccurate.

L is for lambda, and that's good enough for me?

If anybody on my team introduces lambdas to our codebase, it will probably be me. I guess I should read up on how they actually work in Java... I mostly stuck to the poor man's lambda aka Procs/Blocks in Ruby.

Wouldn't that be "λ is for lambda"?
