  • Book Review: “Effortless Cloud-Native App Development Using Skaffold”

    There is no better time than the present for a book such as this, which can surely be seen to be some kind of Skaffold Bible.

    The author provides a complete and thorough overview of the central issues faced by users of Kubernetes, presents Skaffold as a solution, highlights its features and pitfalls, while placing it within the context of the broader ecosystem of comparable solutions.

  • Book Review: “Quarkus for Spring Developers”

    Quarkus for Spring Developers is a straight-forward guide to enable senior developers to quickly shift their Spring skills to leverage the “supersonic subatomic” Quarkus framework, and junior/mid-level developers to learn two frameworks at once.

  • Book Review: “Help Your Boss Help You”

    Some books were written to be read once and put aside, others to be read thoroughly several times and then to be placed behind glass to be broken in case of emergency.

  • Book Review: “Seriously Good Software”

    Marco Faella’s book “Seriously Good Software” teaches intermediate Java programmers to write better software, using an entirely different approach.

    I can warmly recommend this book to Java programmers who have learned to code and strive to code well.

    I think it is a particularly rewarding read for computer science students who had several semesters of disjointed knowledge of programming, algorithms, computing systems, and software engineering.
