Completable Futures: The Promises of the Java World

Traditionally Java has supported multithreading. Asynchronous programming in Java is a bit of novelty. Java 8 introduced CompletableFuture to bring the features of JavaScript promises to the Java land. In this presentation we will learn about this feature and how to make use of it. We will dive into the topics: CompletableFuture, ways to create, using chaining, propagating results, dealing with errors, using timeouts, and programming with multiple asynchronous tasks.
