That was only the tip of the iceberg... KISS!

This unnecessary server and cronjob of yesterdays mail was only the tip of the iceberg. It got worse as I had to run the scripts manually to trigger an import.

More means more can break

I know our society and also our dev world loves more. More CPU, more RAM, more Services, more Layers, more X. But that more is not always good. Maybe we can even argue if it is good at all, but not in today’s mail.

RE: Serverless with Spring Boot?

Reader Onno chimed in and reminded me that there is also Spring Cloud Function which aims helping with serverless the Spring way. Maybe it works, maybe not. I haven’t used it.

Yes, it is doable.

Going serverless?

Serverless is one of the recent hypes on the block. Is it good? Is it bad?

Ah, this interview I talked about yesterday is still on my mind. Fascinating what you can learn by just listening to people and asking a few questions. Anyways, I am going to bend the subject line a bit.

Trust is the base of all relationships.

The P in MVP is not an app

Last Update: 05.10.2018. By Jens in Newsletter

When you start about building your own Saas you will inevitably come across the concept of MVP - a minimum viable product. And that last word is confusing devs like hell. Because we actually think in products. And a product for us is an application. A working one.

Want to build a Saas?

Probably the dream of almost every dev. Creating your own Saas and quitting your fucking job. Right?

Building your own digital asset store with Spring got easier

Last Update: 02.10.2018. By Jens in Newsletter

A few years ago I was building a storage service for digital assets like images and videos and PDFs for products. Was quite fun but I had to code everything from scratch. I always thought of putting something similar up and open source it. Unfortunately, I never came around for that. Luckily, someone else did and wrote the unofficial Spring Content lib. It’s like Spring Data for storing files.
