Book: Java by Comparison

Book Review: Java by Comparison

Asciidoctor Deep Dive

Asciidoc is a markup language for documentation. Asciidoctor is a popular implementation of a rendering engine for Asciidoc.

I’ve given a talk Asciidoctor Deep Dive at the JavaLand conference. I post the code samples, the slides and a video recording here.

In the talk I share my experiences with Asciidoctor, tips and tricks and hints to style your PlantUML diagrams. I also show how to get most out of Asciidoctor PDF generation using templates and extensions.

Microservices - more than a hype?

For the German magazine Informatik Spektrum I wrote an article capturing the current ideas of microservices as an introduction.

It’s based on my project experience over the last two years. A free online-version of the article is available as well!
