JavaOne: Comparing Java Web Frameworks – Finally, he finished with an interesting thought – that one of the main scalability issues with any web framework is people i.e. the competencies and preferences of the developers on the team.
Comparing Mongo DB and Couch DB – MongoDB – We are getting a lot of questions "how are mongo db and couch different?" It's a good question: both are document-oriented databases with schemaless JSON-style object data storage. Both products have their place — we are big believers that databases are specializing and "one size fits all" no longer applies.
Why Dart is not the language of the future – Dart fails to provides the advantages of static languages, without compensating by the flexibility of dynamic languages. Nothing has been learned from the dynamic language renaissance of the last ten years; nothing from the functional world; nothing even from the slick concurrency model of Go and its goroutines, also from Google.
So I think it's a step backwards in language design. With Node.js and Coffeescript around, and the programming paradigms they allow, Dart looks already obsolete and inadapted.
I am a total Java geek that lives in Brookfield - WI (Milwaukee), making my living as an architect/developer, spending all my time with Java, J2EE, OO, Linux, and open source. In my spare time, when I am not in front of my computers, I spend every other minute with my other loves: My wife and daughter, books, music, guitars, Formula-1 racing and SCI-FI shows like StarGate and others.
At work, I spend most of my time dealing with architectural and security issues with plenty of work and personal play-time going into discovering the latest tool, framework, etc that will allow us to work faster, smarter and deliver better results. A lot of my time is also spent fire-fighting issues and coming up with solutions to interesting problems. :)
