The day is here! You can now pre-order your copy of Learning Spring Boot! At this very moment, I am working with the finishing editors to polish up this book and get it uploaded to the printers. It should be out SOON! I’m naturally eager to get the word out. But it isn’t just about…
I just finished Vaetra Unveiled by Daniel Marvello. It was a delightful read! I wanted to write up my reactions to it. Vaetra Unveiled is a classic swords-and-sorcery novel. There is action, suspense, and charm amongst the characters. Daniel does a great job at world building in the sense that I could imagine everywhere the…
Greetings readers! I have hammering my editor to give me an updated plan for when Learning Spring Boot is expected to come out. They had been hinting that it would be at the end of October. Hearing nothing after turning in the manuscript, I finally got word that it is expected to be ready to…
I recently got confirmation of the cover image of “Learning Spring Boot”. I don’t have the official cover, but I created a mock up based on the stock image. I’m really excited about this. About a month ago, Packt sent me a collection of stock images to pick from, and this one was PERFECT. To…
Greetings readers, Having just sent off the last rewrites, my book has entered the finishing stage. This is the point where my publisher begins to turn the crank on converting my LibreOffice manuscript into a printable tome. They also sell e-copies and even have a subscription library model. You can pay a flat rate and…
Big shout out to @altfatterz @geowarin @furikuri @royclarkson @phillip_webb and @rob_winch as I wrap up “Learning #SpringBoot”
I just shipped out my last rewrite for Learning Spring Boot. I am TIRED. The past five nights, I have stayed up later than midnight to get in last edits and incorporate feedback from my reviewers. These guys are really talented. I couldn’t ask for a more solid team to pick over my material and…
Despite being buried at #s2gx, managed to submit chapter 1 rewrite for “Learning #SpringBoot” to @PacktPub
There was a mix-up of communications with my editor. I told her that I was out this week. But it appears that just won’t cut it. Packt Pub is FAST! Thankfully, I invested time during last night’s flight to work on Chapter 2 – Quick Start with Java. This morning, after fixing up Spring-a-Gram, I was…
Last night, I worked from 9:30pm until 2am on Learning Spring Boot. Whew! It was tough work, but I needed to pull it across the finish line. I had the code lined up quite nicely for the entire chapter. I simply need to tell the story of how all this stuff worked together. As I’ve…
This Thursday I’ll be submitting the first draft for Chapter 5 – Securing Your App with Spring Boot inside Learning Spring Boot. If you have no experience with Spring Security, then I hope you’ll enjoy this chapter. Security by itself is a complex topic. There is no single thing that instantly makes your entire application…
Yesterday afternoon, I bundled up Chapter 4, Data Access with Spring Boot for Learning Spring Boot and shipped it off to Packt Publishing. They were happy to receive it on time. Then I saw Spring Boot release version 1.1.5.RELEASE. I just updated all my source code to the latest version, edited the fragments, and fixed the links…
