Programming Language Assimilation: BE the Borg - Nulls in Java

Programming Language Assimilation: Be the Borg

John Hoestje Development Technologies, Java, Programming Leave a Comment

One of the great benefits of learning multiple programming languages is the ability to learn how languages are different from one another and what the best pieces of each language are. I’m not deep into Star Trek, but the Borg Collective fascinated me. Before assimilating a new species, the Borg assessed if the new species was worthy of assimilation. To be worthy, the species’ assimilation would need to get the Borg closer to perfection.

We can think about new programming languages like the Borg treats new species. When we learn a new language, we should measure success based on how it hones our programming tool kit and how its concepts grow our overall programming knowledge and understanding…

Testing the Current Date/Time in Spring and Java

How often in Java services do we need to use the current date and time? Most of us would agree we use it quite often. Many times, we may want to record when an event happened, such as logging in, sending an invoice, or recording a chat. Other times, we may want to use the current time in a business …

Bloom Filters in Java Dev

Applying Bloom Filters to Java Dev: A Naive Implementation

Tazz Vose Development Technologies, Java, Testing Leave a Comment

Over the course of this blog, I will be focusing on using Bloom Filters in Java development. We’ll briefly talk through what they are and why they’re handy, and then we’ll dive into a hypothetical use case and tutorial.

As a note, this post is just meant to get you started on the track to using a Bloom Filter in the wild. What we discuss here will stay high-level but will give you a general idea of how it would work on a project.

Without further ado, let’s get started.

Rik Scarborough Java, Programming Leave a Comment

So you’re a Java programmer, and you want to take your skills to a higher level. I’m going to suggest you take a project and go old school.

Over the course of this blog, I’ll explain what “going old school” means as well as give you some tips and tricks to get started. We’re going to step away from most modern tools and go back to the basics, so you gain a deeper understanding of what Java is and how it works. By the end, you should be well on your way to improving your Java skill set.
