Are you new to Java?
Are you coming back to programming after a long pause?
It is the best way to enjoy Java 8 .
Forget all the old Java things and jump directly to Java 8.
I was skeptical about it , but I realize that Java 8 is a great thing.
Here we come to some reading advice:
- General book about Java SE 8
The best available book is Horstmann – Java SE 8 for the Really Impatient (2014) .
- About error and exception handling
My advice is to read 7 Error Handling by Michael Feathers in the book “Clean Code A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship”. The author as a voice interview online as well.
