Last month I promised a quick update on my upcoming #SpringBootBuch (it has not yet a title), so here we go:
Writing a book takes time, but it is really fun. Today, I send out a new version of the manuscript to my lector, now containing the full chapters for “Deployment” (which contains actuator as well) and “Testing”. I also incorporated the 12-Factor App as a red line. By doing so I realized how much thought went into the design of Spring Boots incredible powerful configuration mechanism.
I promised the table of contents, which is still somewhat work in progress but I have my red line in the meantime (the image is linked to a pdf):
What has been amazing is the really extensive feedback from several people. That did not only good the the book itself but also gave me a real boost. Thank you! I also have to thank the Spring Boot Team, for taking my feedback on the docs, but especially Stéphane Nicoll for the great discussions.
Apart from that, whats going on? I managed somehow more than 300km on bike in February. Yep, I was ill and did not feel good, but staying home would have ruined my mood, too…
Thanks to a lengthy discussion with Heinz I tried high dosed magnesium in the evening, shortly before sleep. That helped a lot prolonging dry January into dry February and also getting me some rest. Thanks man!
March is gonna be a busy month. Tomorrow I’m heading towards Düsseldorf, learning about scalable Webarchitectures at innoQ.
Shortly after that we’ll have an in-house Oracle APEX workshop which I am organizing. And by the end of March there’s already Javaland 2017. I have been to all installments and this year, I’ll be part of the Javaland4Kids day… That’s gonna be something.
Hard to tell, which chapter I’m gonna finish next month in #SpringBootBuch.
