#GeekListener v.7

Every Wednesday I publish #GeekListener – a digest of developers tweets about Java, Scala, microservices and so on. Today isn’t exception! So be ready to spend 2-3 minutes of your time on fresh tweets and my bad humor.

Meet the #GeekListener #7

Ismael Juma opens the digest with an eternal question:

Ismael, I want to answer the question. A reality is very severe, and most of developers still use Java 6 and Internet Explorer 8. Do you really wait from that 17% explanation regarding Scala 2.10?

Frank Greco is surprised by marketing skills of modern tech bloggers.

And it could be really funny if it wouldn’t be so sad. I’m mean not Frank Greco, but these fucking bloggers who publish each second blog post about a programming language or a framework with titles such as:

  • “5 strong advantages of ${{NAME_OF_FRAMEWORK}}”
  • “10 reasons to use ${{PROGRAMMING_LANGUAGE}}”

That’s what happens when SEO goes ahead of a content.

Daniel Westheide demonstrates a next level of developer’s seniority.

Cool story, Bro. But I heard a story about one developer who implemented changes and deployed them, before the meeting was started. So we still have to learn and improve a lot of things.

Sharat Chander quotes his Dad…

What can I say here? Just another quote:

“You know less than you know than you know…” ― Recursion

Actually something like this I remember from the “Game Theory” course on Coursera.

I guess that you missed for Java Haters…

So, Gojko Adzic, here is my question:

What programming language runs on more than 3 billion devices?


I don’t know how to comment this tweet? Any ideas? If you like this digest, you can read the previous one #GeekListener v.6

Dan Woods chooses Gradle!

Dan, I know such modern Java projects which use Maven. But with a small remark, these projects also use XML configs…

And in the end of the digest, some hacker news:

Nice joke, Li. It hink, it could happen when in hell would snows.

Thanks to readers for reading, thanks to writers for writing! Do you want to join the #GeekListener digest? Then retweet cool tweets with the hash code #GeekListener! Comment, share and stay in touch!
