17:00 - 18:15h: Talk incl. Q/A
Afterwards you are invited to a refreshment.
LambdaJ library makes it easy to manipulate collections in a
pseudo-functional and statically typed way. To iterate over collections
and nested loops is often error prone, particularly when mixed with
conditional statements, and it is difficult to read and maintain the
resulting code. LambdaJ uses functional programming techniques to
address these issues while preserving the advantages of static typing in
Through a straightforward DSL, LambdaJ reduces code complexity when
writing iterations over collections by allowing you to filter, convert,
group, aggregate and sort items with no need to write a single explicit
Attend and learn:
* When to leverage the LambdaJ library to have better control over
language constructs involving loops;
* How to eliminate unreadable loops in your code;
* How to implement an internal DSL in Java through a smart use of
proxy and reflection;
* and more.
Talk and Slides in English
Mario Fusco joined the Java developers community during his studies at
the University, and has been a Java enthusiast since. With a long track
record of successful projects in several industries ranging from media
companies to the financial sector, Mario masters all aspects of software
design and development. A clear passion for collaborative software
development has led Mario to share his efforts with several communities
in mainstream open source software.
Current interests include multi-threaded programming and distributed
computing, performance optimization, the Scala programming language and
functional programming. Mario is the lead developer of LambdaJ and Jamme
open source projects, JUG Lugano community leader, and a keen speaker at
Java conferences and seminars in Europe and the United States.
Mario lives in Lugano, Switzerland, where he works as Head of IT
development at Ex Machina.

by Harald Gall
This is an announcement particularly for PhD students of CHOOSE:
Dear PhD students,
We are organizing a summer school for PhD students on Complex Software
Systems at the Department of Informatics, University of Zurich:
We have been able to attract both international and local scientists
as lecturers. The summer school is open to all who want to deepen and
widen their knowledge on Complex Software Systems.
PhD students have the opportunity to acquire ECTS credits for their
The topics are:
Services in Mixed Systems – Models, Methods, and Algorithms, Prof. Dr.
Schahram Dustdar, TU Vienna
Adaptive Software Services, Prof. Dr. Luciano Baresi, Politecnico di
Software Evolution Studies, Prof. Dr. Serge Demeyer, University of
Software Testing as Software Quality Control, Dr. Beat Fluri, UZH
Semantic Web Technologies in Software Engineering, Dr. Gerald Reif, UZH
Business Process Modeling, Dr. Jana Köhler, IBM Research
Recurring Architectural Decisions - A Context-Specific Guide through
SOA Design, Dr. Olaf Zimmermann, IBM Research
The goal is to promote state-of-the-art research on Complex Software
Systems as well as basic technologies to build and assure the quality
of such systems.
If you are interested, please register by Sept 5.
See many of you at the event!
