I was in the progress of writing today’s tutorial and stumbled upon a stupid little mistake I made in the Kanban API we run at the beginning of this year. So, instead of the tutorial, you’ll get that.

Parsing Arguments in Commandline Applications with Spring Boot

Sitting all day in front of a screen, iterating over thinking, typing out code and debugging it, is tough. This alone will exhaust you sooner than later. Now add those meetings and even office politics and you will be brain dead at the end of a working day.
