Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we wondered if Docker can truly be ousted and we invited a couple of specialists to weigh in on this matter. We welcomed a new Angular 2 release candidate and we brought the interruptions discussion back into the spotlight.
Discussions about a possible Docker fork have taken the industry by storm. We have the group which supports Docker 1.12 and points out its strengths and the group which claims that what the world needs right now is “boring core infrastructure.” We asked Peter Rossbach, freelance system architect and coach of numerous web applications, to weigh in on this Docker fork discussion.
Welcome back to our series ‘Foundation Talk’ in which we introduce the staff of the Eclipse Foundation. Meet Andrea Ross, Director of Ecosystem Development.
Some view the transition from engineer to manager as pure torture, others simply want to move up but just a few are truly aware of the benefits and risks of juggling passion for code and management responsibilities. How do you know if you are cut out to be an engineering manager?

There’s a famous saying by Roman philosopher Seneca which goes like this: “It is quality rather than quantity that matters.” This quote transcends time and industry and proves that countries such as the United States and India, famous for their huge number of programmers, are lagging behind in terms of quality.

When I work with clients on designing actor systems there are a few anti-patterns that seem to make it into initial, non-reviewed designs no matter what. In this series of short articles I would like to cover a few of those.
No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices.

The dissatisfaction with Docker is out in the open now and one of the most popular fears is that the container ecosystem could be pulled to pieces. Let’s analyze the facts.
We opened Pandora’s box because we wanted to know how developers really feel about interruptions. It turns out that interruptions (especially planned ones) truly are real-life kryptonite and they can hinder productivity. Developers weighed in on this issue on Reddit — so let’s see how they cope with interruptions.

Some of the obstacles are only speed bumps, while others are like oceans – there’s just no way around them. Desktop IDEs are comfortably on an island by themselves and it’s up to browser-based IDEs to find a way to bridge the gap.
