Only when we know the landscape around us, we can plan our way through rough terrain in a sensible way. Maps help us avoid obstacles, recognize chances on the way and find favourable starting positions for coming stages. So let’s draw a map…
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Java 14 was released last week, so we looked into all the exciting new features and interviewed Java experts to see what they like most about JDK 14.
The monthly update for Java on Visual Studio Code has arrived, and it has some new features on board.

For the release of Java 14, we spoke to software architect Tim Riemer. Read the interview to find out what features he is most excited about, whether he misses any features, and what he would like to see in Java 15.
For the release of Java 14, we spoke to software developer Jens Schauder. Read the interview to find out what features he is most excited about, how Java compares to other languages, and why the number of additional features does not define how relevant a programming language is.
Like clockwork, the latest quarterly update for Eclipse has arrived with over 72.5 million lines of code under the hood and support for Java 14. Have a closer look at what the newest simultaneous release brings for 74 projects and watch Holger Voormann’s latest explanatory video.
Code is not usually on a piranha’s menu, but this predatory fish is different: Uber has open sourced Piranha for automatically deleting feature flags that are no longer needed. The corresponding code is deleted as well. Let’s see how that works and when to use Piranha.
