Assertions in the Java programming language

Are you ready for Java assertions? This fun feature of Java is used to define the boolean condition in a program. In this article, Adrian D. Finlay explores how developers can make the most of this condition and how they can avoid AssertionErrors.

Phase III has begun

Project Valhalla enters new phase

Project Valhalla has been around for more than four years but now that Oracle has a much richer base to build on, they’re ready for Phase III. Their next target is L2 and L10 is the target for a first preview. Let’s have a closer look at the state of Project Valhalla.

Interview with Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder at CloudBees

“DevOps is the new normal, cloud is the new infrastructure & Kubernetes is the new operating system”

We are now witnessing the democratization of DevOps. This concept seemed to be an unattainable goal until recently but now it has become the new normal. Digital transformations are a must and job descriptions are slowly changing as developers will have to increase their “operational” awareness. We talked to Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder at CloudBees about all this and more.

Developers now have a Kubernetes native implementation of Cloud Foundry

The Kubernetes universe expands with Eirini and CF Containerization

Kubernetes is the right horse to bet on. How do we know? Well, the Kubernetes universe continues to grow with two new offerings from Cloud Foundry, Eirini and CF Containerization. We take a look at these tools and show why Kubernetes is one of the most promising technologies today.
