We are in 2015 and Java 8 will slowly but surely become the new standard. Our world will be filled with lambdas. Generics, for themselves, have appeared in 2004. They brought benefits and complexity. Enough to blow up the complexity quota of Java according to Josh Bloch. But lambdas, whatever are sexy they are, are going to add even more complexity. Mix with generics your now playing with nitroglycerin. We will travel together through the bottom of the generics, through inference and through lambdas type resolution. To explain why. To provide solutions. To ease Java 8 adoption.
