With things bearing down on my September due date for Learning Spring Boot 2nd Edition, I’ve gotten in gear and started hammering at the codebase. For one thing, I have strived to catch up ALL the code to Spring WebFlux, no longer using the servlet-based Spring MVC. In the process of doing that, I discovered a…
I have recently been learning a bunch about marketing. My wife has started marketing her fourth novel. Along the way, we have also started boosting Facebook posts about the freebie opportunities. And in my quest to better understand these types of campaigns, I have stumbled into a concept called “organic reach”. That is cute language for…
This blog post is coming to you late because I’m neck deep in pre-edits. Since I signed a contract for Darklight, I have had a checklist of things to get done for my publisher, Clean Reads. The most exhausting: pre-edits. Pre-edits are an opportunity to clear away the proverbial brush. There are LOTS of things we…
In this day and age, the DIY (Do It Yourself) movement is strong. The internet has made it super simple to start reading about somthing, but a few things from Amazon, and reach and get going! On one hand, that’s really good. I’ve seen countless businesses launched in this fashion. Many show up on Shark…
Something I’ve been working on for seven years now has taken a big turn. I signed a contract with Clean Reads to publish my novel, DARKLIGHT! I’m pretty stoked about this. Of course it will be lots of work. Not even sure if it’s coming out this year or next. Either way, it’s going to…
Last week in The Power of REST – Part 2, I talked about how investing effort in backward compatibility and having flexible settings, it’s possible to avoid a lot of “API versioning”, something Roy Fielding has decried. In this article, we’ll look more closely at the depth and power of hypermedia. How does the web…
I had totally forgotten about this, but back in February, Packt Publishing approach me about writing a 2nd Edition to Python Testing Cookbook. This is a title I wrote back in 2011, and from which I still get royalty checks! It’s not huge. In fact, it’s more symbolic than anything. I get real a warm fuzzy…
Last week, in The Power of REST – Part 1, I challenged someone’s proposal that their client-side query language could supplant the power of REST. It seemed to attack strawman arguments about REST. In this article, I wanted to delve a little more into what REST does and why it does it. Basis of REST…
Last night, I watched Hidden Figures with my wife and a friend. The story had me pinned to my seat the entire time. This is set back in the days of the Mercury space program. Back then, before the days of digital computers, there were human computers to tally up columns of figures. And in…
I was kind of shocked when I saw Yet Another Posted Solution to REST. I sighed and commented, and drew the ire of many. So I figured this might be a good time to gather some thoughts on REST. Love how GraphQL “fixes” the REST by introducing tight coupling and brittleness. And then they duck…
