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.

Software patterns come and go. As do the anti-patterns. Things you should not do they proved to be bad decisions before. One of the new anti-patterns is the “CRUD Mapping in REST APIs”.
In this pattern, we create an API that represents 1-to-1 our data model and we blindly map our internal data structure to the outside.

Yeah, this morning I did have some fun with another legacy app. Like the one from the stone age, it is closing 10 years soon. And the guy, solely working on it, wasn’t a proficient dev so to say. He did get the stuff done but lacked a lot and had no real interest in progression. But he was nice :-)

A rant is coming, so read it or click away, whatever you want it’s your choice.
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.

I think there are many parallels between a startup and a single dev career. We can learn a lot from the startup world and apply it to our own business or career. Take the first step every startup takes. Choosing an audience. The audience is the people actually buy from the startup. Replace buy now with hiring you and you got the career equivalent.
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.
