Job Security, Career Stability, and Employability For Startups

career-logo

I was recently asked to answer a question on Quora about startups and stability, and as I read some of the other replies I noticed a trend. The question was basically “Would joining a startup be a mistake for someone with the goals of stability and career progression?”. The questioner then defined stability as being able to support a family and have nice things (financial ...

Using Google Guava Cache for local caching

Lot of times we would have to fetch the data from a database or another webservice or load it from file system. In cases where it involves a network call there would be inherent network latencies, network bandwidth limitations. One of the approaches to overcome this is to have a cache local to the application. If your application spans across ...

java-logo

One of features I love the most about Java 8 is the streams API. It finally eliminates pretty much all loops from the code and lets you write code that is so much more expressive and focused. Today I realized it can be used for something else: As a nice front-end for the ForkJoinPool. Problem: Executors Boilerplate Let’s say we ...

Key Concepts of Kubernetes

What is Kubernetes? Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It manages containerized applications across multiple hosts and provides basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications.
