Handle events with lambda expressions: Android Development Essential Training: Manage Navigation and Events

You can shorten your event handling code by using Java 8 syntax - specifically, lambda expressions. If you’re using Android Studio 2.3, you’ll be dependent on a compiler toolchain named Jack and Jill. But starting with Android Studio 2.4, the Jack compiler is deprecated and you can now program with certain Java 8 syntax styles with Android’s traditional compiler. Either way, you can reduce some of the boilerplate event handling code.
