A sunrise in the horizon

January in Finland is perfect for winter sports. Skiing, ice hockey or even tour skating on the Baltic Sea are popular hobbies among us Finns. The sun has also started showing its face more and more and we're heading towards brighter times. This draws the drowsy Finn out from his hole and into the nature once again. In just a few days we'll hit 8 consecutive hours of sunlight per day.

Java 8

Java 8 is just around the corner, for the first time with large noticeable enhancements to both the language and on the JVM level. We took Java 8 to the test to see how it will increase your productivity as a Vaadin developer and how much of it you can use already today. Lambdas will especially come in handy as a replacement for inline event listeners, but what else is new? Read more from the blog and be prepared when Oracle releases the first RC of Java 8.
