A sign of the Times: Dates and Times in Java 8

Level: Basic

A long standing thorn in the side of Java developers is the set of problems associated
with java.util.Date and Calendar. Inconsistencies such as whether numbers start at 0, 1
or 1900. Poor design decisions such as inherently thread unsafe formatters.

Thankfully Java 8 introduces a new API for date and time values based on domain modelling, thread safety and fluency. If you want to learn about how to use the API and how to integrate it into your existing projects then this is the talk for you!
