I just watched the presentation and it was great, and addressed a lot of 
issues that are very familiar to me.
I am interested into this (more specifically, whether there is or will 
be anything like that in C#), hopefully will get some time to research 
as well.
Count me out from Java8 stuff though - currently my resources are not 
enough for anything Java-specific. :(
