I am really excited to announce that February is going to be packed full of Spring Boot 2 workshops.
Spring Boot 2 is packed full of new features and I can’t wait to share some of them with you. In a series of online workshops and 1 in-person presentation, we are going to learn all about Getting Started with Spring Boot 2.0
Another year has come and gone and after spending some time reflecting on 2017, it’s time to start looking forward to 2018.
Just so we are clear on where this is going, this isn’t a “new year, new me” post. If you want to accomplish goals, you have to define them first. I sat down this week and wrote down some things I wanted to accomplish in 2018.
It seems like we say this every year, but can you believe the year is over already?
2017 is going to go down as one of the more memorable years of my life. I thought I would take this time to give you a little “year in review” before I share my 2018 goals.
I was recently featured in the Online Course Masters podcast. I sat down with my friend Phil Ebiner to catch up and talk about life because we haven’t seen each other in awhile and of course about creating online courses.
Before we get to the podcast episode I want to tell you about Phil Ebiner and Online Course Masters.
This Tuesday, Adobe announced that it would stop updating and distributing Flash Player at the end of 2020. There are plenty of reasons to be happy that it is going away but I can’t help but spend some time reflecting on the past.
There are new standards in place that will carry us into the future and while I am glad to see Flash going away, I can’t help but be a little nostalgic today.
I recently received a really good question from a reader and I thought I would share it with you today and give you my thoughts on it.
Hello Dan, After reading your about me page (“I am a self-taught programmer who firmly believes that you can accomplish anything in this life if you put your mind to it, roll up your sleeves and are willing to put in the work.”). I am really motivated to try new things and felt a rush of excitement. I wanted to ask if you get stuck on understanding new technology what do you do? I personally constantly google and use stack overflow. But it always takes some time to understand. Lastly, what books do you recommend a newbie programmer to read? Congrats on your upcoming wedding and honey moon. Thank you, Jesse
Thank you so much, Jesse, for taking the time to reach out to me.
I recently wrote this article on Medium and thought I would share it here with this audience today. I know there are a lot of Software Developers out there that want to get into creating courses and if that’s you I think you’re really going to enjoy this article.
I get really fired up about teaching online because I enjoy doing something that is improving the life of someone else. It might be on a very small scale but I still like to think I am making a difference. I also enjoy that, on occasion, I get someone else fired up about teaching online.
A student had a question about validating data at the domain level and so I thought it would share it with you.
First of all thanks a lot for this great course. It really helped me to get into Spring. But now I’m facing a problem and didn’t find a solution yet. I want to use for my DTO classes annotations like @NotNull (javax.validation.constraints) or custom annotations. But both don’t work within spring boot. Do you know a good way or practice to solve this? Or is it too expensive to make these annotations work? If yes, is there a spring alternative for such annotations that execute a custom validation like a license-plate for instance?
I hope this question isn’t too off-topic to this course and perhaps also interesting for another member of this course.
In this article, I want to dive into why I believe that every developer should start a blog right now. This will be a little bit of a bias opinion because I believe this is where both my career and my life’s mission started.
I realize that not everyone is walking the same path as I am in life. With that said I do see some real value in sharing your experiences as a developer with others. I am going to share my journey with you and give you the one thing I wish I would have known when I started blogging.
I recently had my question featured on the Ask Pat Podcast. For those of you who don’t know Pat Flynn, he’s a very successful entrepreneur who runs the website Smart Passive Income. Smart Passive Income is a resource to teach you proven strategies for running an online business and optimizing it for passive income. The Ask Pat podcast is your business questions answered in a bite-sized podcast five days a week, Monday through Friday.
I can hear the questions coming in now. Dan, I thought you were going to stop blogging about business related topics. That is still my focus but in this case, I can assure you this article has some real value for my audience.
