Devoxx 2012: Java 8 Lambda and Parallelism, Part 2

In my previous post "Devoxx 2012: Java 8 Lambda and Parallelism, Part 1", I covered the basics of lambda and parallelism in Java 8 as presented at Devoxx in the session "On the road to JDK 8: Lambda, parallel libraries, and more" by Joe Darcy. In this post, I would like to cover two more Devoxx sessions on this topic: "Closures and Collections - the World After Eight" by Maurice Naftalin, and "Fork / Join, lambda & parallel() : parallel computing made (too ?) easy" by Jose Paumard. These two sessions, as well as the first one, took place in the same day, in the same room, one after the other, and together provided three different perspectives on lambdas, parallel collections, and parallelism in general in Java 8.
