Welcome to the first installment of Codeleak.pl: Week Review!. I want to share with you some interesting reads that I encountered this week. A very subjective selection.
Heroku: Up and Running
Heroku is becoming very popular platform for deploying highly scalable application in variety of technologies. This week I have read a book about Heroku, to have better understanding about the platform. It is not a bible, but if you are looking for a good introduction - this book is for you.
The Twelve-Factor App
The twelve-factor app is a methodology for building modern software-as-a-service applications in any programming language. These twelve factors include: codebase tracking, dependencies management, configuration, backing services, releasing, executing, exporting services, concurrency, disposability, dev/prod parity, logging and admin processes. Reads really well.
Java SE 8 Date and Time library
Java 8 is coming, and apart from Lambda Expression, there are many interesting features. One of them is new Date and Time API. It offers thread-safe, immutable classes to work with Date and Time in Java applications. The below article from Java Magazine is a good introduction to this API.
Three Reasons Why I Like the Builder Pattern
Yet another article about Builder Pattern. But instead of UML diagrams, you can find out why you should consider (and like) using Builder pattern. Good read.
That is all this time! Enjoy reading!
