Currently code sample is:

public final class ImmutableHello {
  public ImmutableHello(String name) { = name;
  public String getName() {
    return name;

Looks like this is missing a
private final String name;

You may also want to mention java libraries such as Immutables and AutoValue as yet another alternative to creating immutable classes (as also recommended by Lightbend). I wouldn't think you'd have to go into any details, but IMHO these help remove Java boilerplate immensely and provide correct immutable implementations.
