Our new webinar series [email protected] brings IT experts into your (home) office. On Thursday, April 30th at 13:00 CEST, Thorben Janssen will show us how to use lesser known features of Hibernate to implement common features, such as generating UUIDs as primary keys, quickly.

We’re in the midst of a pandemic, and more and more developers are working in isolated environments or from home. With our webinar series [email protected] we want to counteract this social distance by bringing developers stuck in their homes together with tech talks – by professionals for professionals!

Hibernate Tips ‘n’ Tricks – 15 Tips to solve common problems
You probably know this situation: Your customer asks for “just a tiny, little change”. After a few hours … or days … you recognize that you can’t implement it that easily. At some point you think: “I can’t be the first who tries to implements this!” You’re probably right … Hibernate provides a lot of lesser known features that help you to implement common requirements quickly. The problem is that most developers don’t know about them. They spend days to create their own solution when it just takes an annotation or a few lines of code to:

  • Implement multi-tenancy
  • Support a database-specific data type
  • Map an SQL-snippet instead of a database column to an entity attribute
  • Retrieve the elements of a mapped association in a defined order
  • Generate UUIDs as primary keys
  • Write an audit log documenting all changes performed on an entity
  • And more…

The webinar will take place on the BigMarker webinar platform and is freely open to all. Join us by clicking the following link:

Due to the coronavirus, social events all over the world have been restricted and office work has largely shifted to the home.

So if the majority of us are now spending time working from home, it just makes sense that we should want to network more closely. Several IT experts who are usually to be found at one of our conferences were enthusiastic about the idea of holding their talks from home and sharing them with others in their homes via live stream.

Tech talks from your desk

[email protected] aims to provide live talks twice a week on topics like Java, TypeScript, DevOps, microservices, machine learning, etc. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage with the experts.
