Machine learning may sound futuristic, but it’s not. Speech recognition systems such as Cortana or Search in e-commerce systems have already showed us the benefits and challenges that go hand in hand with these systems. In our machine learning series we will introduce you to several tools that make all this possible. First stop: CognitiveJ.
With developers spending so much time with API integrations in their development time, Felix Kollmar of CloudRail, based in Mannheim, Germany, saw an opportunity to help improve their lives. “We’re all developers at CloudRail,” says Felix Kollmar, CEO and co-founder of CloudRail, “and so we all know the pain of integrating APIs.

When developing an application it can be hard enough to get the happy path working, let alone worry about what might happen when something goes wrong. Peter Lawrey, Java Champion and speaker at JAX London, has asked a number of developers what they do when they get an exception. What are the alternatives? If you have to pass on the exception, how might you do that?
Prometheus 1.0 was launched last week —it delivers a stable API and user interface. In short, “Prometheus 1.0 means upgrades won’t break programs built atop the Prometheus API, and updates won’t require storage re-initialization or deployment changes.” Let’s allow Björn Rabenstein, engineer at SoundCloud and Prometheus core developer, to tell us all everything we need to know about this release.
Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we witnessed the birth of AngularDart, the release of IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.1 and the reassurance that Java maintains its dominant position over other JVM languages. We learned why blockchain may outgrow Bitcoin and we discovered that microservices may not become a default architecture.
Now that IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2, JetBrains’ second update planned for this year, has been released, it’s time for IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.1 EAP. This EAP build updates the bundled Kotlin plugin version to 1.0.3. Stay tuned for more updates!
