Project Valhalla is one of the most exciting incoming change for Java. It will bring "Inline Types" (previously known as Type Classes) to the language, Immutable "memory flatten" object that promise to replace primitive types without performance loss and introduce reified generics.
Oracle released the preview called LW2 which give us a quite stable platform to start exploring the new type model on our projects.
There will be a (short) presentation of Valhalla features and current issues.
Then the workshop will start. We will be around to help.
- Bring your notebook with IDE configured
- Download Valhalla from the link below and install it
- Try to use it in a project of your choice. Don't worry if you don't have a project, we will share some examples on Github.
