Startup Playbook by Sam Altman #ycombinator #startup – Though one-on-one advice will always be crucial, we thought it might help us scale Y Combinator if we could distill the most generalizable parts of this advice into a sort of playbook we could give YC and YC Fellowship companies.
Redefine Java virtualization with Docker #docker – This installment of Open source Java projects introduces Java developers to Docker. I'll explain why it's important to developers, walk you through setting up and deploying a Java application to Docker, and show you how to integrate Docker into your build process.
Real Time, Open Source Data Sync – Telepat – Telepat is an open-source backend stack, designed to deliver information updates to and from connected devices in real-time, while allowing for flexible deployment and simple scaling.
Go extra lightweight, with Java microframeworks Spark, Ninja, and Play – In the world of Java web development, such a tool would be described as lightweight. Java microframeworks have recently emerged as the newest and leanest of frameworks yet. Rather than consolidate a massive feature set, as did Java EE, or even a lighter MVC framework like Spring, microframeworks put the programmer at the center of a coherent set of increasingly powerful, lightweight tools.
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. :)
