"If you've been following the Devops Weekly newsletter, DevOps-like conferences or if you're just really interested in technology, you've probably heard of unikernels being mentioned a few times. In the last few months, it's popularity has greatly increased."
"The Lightweight Java Profiler
XRebel is a lightweight Java profiler that helps developers find and fix common problems in their application as they code."
"In this fourth and final part of the book, we will look at the various concurrency considerations one must undertake when querying data in motion. We will look how to avoid concurrency when possible and use it correctly when justifiable. We will look at the excellent abstractions Rx provides, that enable concurrency to become declarative and also unit testable. In my opinion, theses two features are enough reason alone to adopt Rx into your code base. We will also look at the complex issue of querying concurrent sequences and analyzing data in sliding windows of time."
"Which rule engine algorithm is faster: ReteOO or Phreak?"
"The information in this Section is provided for the curious reader. An understanding of the Rete algorithm may be helpful in planning rule-based systems; an understanding of Jess's implementation probably will not. Feel free to skip this section and come back to it some other time. You should not take advantage of many of the Java classes mentioned in this section. They are internal implementation details and any Java code you write which uses them may well break each time a new version of Jess is released."
"World War I may have ended in 1918, but the violence it triggered in the Middle East still hasn't come to an end. Arbitrary borders drawn by self-interested imperial powers have left a legacy that the region has not been able to overcome.
"5 years of Scala and counting – debunking some myths about the language and its environment"
"Welcome to my introduction to Java 8. This tutorial guides you step by step through all new language features. Backed by short and simple code samples you'll learn how to use default interface methods, lambda expressions, method references and repeatable annotations. At the end of the article you'll be familiar with the most recent API changes like streams, functional interfaces, map extensions and the new Date API. No walls of text, just a bunch of commented code snippets. Enjoy!"
"The Spock testing framework includes powerful mocking capabilities that work well in unit tests. The Spock documentation is extensive, but I often find myself hunting for the syntax of the different mocking mechanisms in Spock. So I created this cheat sheet to help organize the syntax in one concise spot."

"What is GraphQL?
A GraphQL query is a string that is sent to a server to be interpreted and fulfilled, which then returns JSON back to the client."
"As I hear stories about teams using a microservices architecture, I've noticed a common pattern.
Almost all the successful microservice stories have started with a monolith that got too big and was broken up
Almost all the cases where I've heard of a system that was built as a microservice system from scratch, it has ended up in serious trouble."
