Java: Lambdas and Streams

Suggested prerequisites


  • Practice your new skills with hands-on coding exercises on GitHub.
  • Get set up quickly and easily using your favorite IDE and practice applying the theory of functional programming using test-driven development.
  • Write a lambda expression to perform an operation and successfully get a unit test to pass, leveraging a variety of different classes, object types, and methods.
  • Use streams to create, filter, sort, and manage a list of the planets in the solar system by type and class.

In Java, lambdas and streams are everywhere—near ubiquitous, it would seem—and they’re two of the most commonly used examples of functional programming in Java. In this course, software engineer and Java expert Bethan Palmer teaches you the programming skills you need to get the most out of lambdas and streams as a professional Java developer.
