(Editor's note: This was a fun nightclub gag and not intended to imply stereotypes about the 'geek community', which in my view includes people from all walks of life. If you want to see guys promoting closures, then click here.)
Someone call Neal Gafter: the people of St Louis have spoken, and closures are considered hot!
CodeToJoy recently conducted a poll in the nightclubs of St Louis and the overwhelming majority of people voted +1 for inclusion of closures in Java 7.
Due to noise levels, it was difficult to get into the subtleties of the BGGA versus CICE debate (click here for an article). However the various breakout sessions felt that the concept rocks.
Stay tuned for an upcoming contest to win a "+1 for Closures" sticker.
Thanks to the models for participating in the sessions ;-) Contact: codetojoy @t gmail d0t c0m
