Welcome to the Ranch

Because of the popularity of functional languages, there has been pressure to add λs to Java for at least 7 years. When you start using λs instead of anonymous instances of functional interfaces, you learn how much better it is.

Groovy
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
