There is a lot of confusion about Spring Boot and its relationship to the Spring Framework. Some of that leads to questions like “Should I learn Spring Boot rather than the Spring Framework” or “Do I need to know Spring before I can start with Spring Boot?”. Let’s clarify that for you.
In a recent post I wrote about why you should not use microservice I mentioned on the side, that developers are the problem for the nightmare monoliths. And not only for that, for much more.
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.
Sick of deadlines? Sick of project managers, boss, customers or whatever? Coding was once a dream of yours and now it drags you down. Each time you even think about it? Dreading Mondays? Thinking, why am I doing this shit?
Somehow complexity attracts devs like light attracts moths. They can’t resist, we can’t resist.
I was giving a Spring Boot training last week and during the course, I made some observations, which I like to share with you over this week.
Plans never work out.
Let’s take the neverending discussion of testing vs no testing.
Yeah, for your passion of course.
I’m having a problem with this passion word and thing for a long time. Passion is bullshit. I read it again a few minutes earlier where a fellow dev proudly states he’s passionate about unit testing. Yeah, I am passionate about hammers too. And chainsaws. Especially last Friday (13th).
