Some time ago at SoftwareMill during our weekly Friday meeting to share knowledge I’ve presented Google Guava API. And as it ended with quite long presentation and quite many lines of code I thought that this might be interesting for some Java Developers outside our company.

So below there are slides presenting most useful and interesting features of Google Guava (v.11). I didn’t cover every class from this library, there are no examples from cache and concurrent packages as I don’t find this part of Guava as a really, really useful for every Java Programmer. If you need caching or concurrency support, there are some interesting stuff for you in packages I mentioned earlier.

Slides are available here:

Google guava - almost everything you need to know

Source code is available on GitHub – and PDF can be downloaded from here.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please share them in the comments. I am more than happy to learn something new.
