Quo vadis Java EE? From Microservices to the cloud

It appears that all roads lead to the cloud and this issue is no exception. While Oracle indicates that it will move Java EE to the cloud, we promise to teach you how to move your business to a private cloud and openly talk about the problems of cloud storage services.

But enough about that! Don’t miss the second part of our microservices checklist and make sure to read about the needs and expectations of mobile users and how to meet them. We’ve got you covered if you want to know where Bitcoin stands post-halving and if you want to learn more about software development in banking or dive into the Eclipse plugin for named queries.

On a funnier note, we have all the details on the (in)famous TrumpScript. Curious yet?
