comment How to increase the efficiency of an Immutable Queue in java?
@The_Lost_Avatar : Of course you can do that, but then you have a mutable queue. My implementation is immutable, a variable holding a reference to it will never observe any change, all you can do is to get a new, changed immutable queue back. If you are interested in this topic, I highly recommend reading the paper mentioned before ( cs.cmu.edu/~rwh/theses/okasaki.pdf )

comment What to do if a team member delivers bad quality code?
"I work as a kind of mixture of a Scrum Master and a team lead." - that's a bad idea, and makes it harder to find a solution.

comment Benefits of combining programming languages
On the other hand closure are an important part of any modern mainstream language. The reason why it was finally pushed into Java was that the very important and "fundamental" fork-join framework was pretty much unusable without. I would have preferred if they had given Java a general syntax overhaul (even with breaking compatibility) and a better type system first, but I still think the advantages and possibilities of closures outweigh the ugliness (closure syntax itself isn't too bad, but it just doesn't "blend in") and complexity.

@jwenting: True, but I would still prefer to code in hideous Java 8 than in "simple" Java 1.2 (at least until a Scala job comes along). That's the circle of life...
