Devoxx Belgium 2018
from Monday 12 November to Friday 16 November 2018.
Victor is one of the top Independent Technical Trainers of his country (victorrentea.ro) - he mentored, trained and coached almost 1000 developers of top companies. At IBM, even though they call him a Lead Architect, he loves to write code each day: he's maniac about Clean Code, so prepare for some hard-core refactoring. Victor is Associate Professor of Politehnica University of Bucharest and an active Java community member: organized the largest 3 JUG meetups in Romania. He's a regular conference speaker. His live-coding sessions are insane, lightning-fast but well crafted, full of enthusiasm, insights and take-away tips. Things that he learned the hard way during his 14 years of experience. You'll love his sessions!

After leading 2 projects making heavy use of Lambdas and Streams, counseling many others at IBM, and teaching hundreds of developers at University and as an Independent Trainer, Victor will prove several best practices, patterns and anti-patterns he distilled over the years. All via a series of live coding exercises, like you've probably never saw in your life!
You will hear about: Bloated Lambdas, A Happy Predicate, Stream Wrecks, How to Kill The Biggest Bug, Monads, Passing-a-block, The Loan Pattern, and 5 Ways to Implement Type-Specific Logic. Of course, as a Clean Code Maniac, Victor will always strive for maintainable, readable, elegant code. So you'll see a lot of refactoring.
PS: You know, some Joe will maintain your Java8 code at some point. So let's just hope Joe would be a nice safe guy...
