This talk will introduce the CompletableFuture class, introduced in Java 8 to enhance Java's Concurrency API. The CompletableFuture class and associated interfaces provide a new way to perform asynchronous operations without having to perform complex thread manipulation. By adding the CompletableFuture class, Java now has a facility similar to JavaScript Promises and the Async/Await model used by Python, C#, and NodeJS.

The CompletableFuture class uses lambdas and functional interfaces to accomplish things asynchronously in Java. We will take a look at how to implement some simple Lambdas with the CompletableFuture class to handle results.
