Code reviews in the 21st Century

There’s an old adage that goes something like: ‘Do not talk about religion or politics’.  Why?  Because these subjects are full of strong opinions but are thin on objective answers. One person’s certainty is another person’s skepticism; someone else’s common sense just appears as an a prior bias to those who see matters differently. Sadly, conversing these controversial subjects can ...

The EULA is typically 5-15 pages of dense legal text. Almost everyone just tries their best to find the “accept” button as quickly as possible, sometimes giving a sigh as they ...

Small things around Oracle Weblogic 11g (10.3.4)

I am doing a lot of setting up and configuration for Weblogic this week (devops I guess). I have been working with Weblogic for the past 4 years and I have to admit – like Eclipse – I have started getting used of it.
