Java Pub House

So just in case you didn't know, but being a Java developer is as fun as ever! The ecosystem has been changing from the past year, and today, we have "tons" of Java Developer Kits to choose from. Want to know what happened? And want to know how different they are? (or what do they bring to the table), then tune in!

In this episode we cover the history of OpenJDK, and uncover the reason of why there are many JDKs out there. We dive in some of the licensing terms (hint. If you are using Oracle JDK 8, make sure you are getting security updates on with a support plan!).

Then Bob dives into some very fun differences between OpenJDK, Azul, and OpenJ9... and the tool to "keep sane" with all these installations, SDKMan! So if you do Java development for a living (and even if you are a hobbyist) this episode explains all the different Java versions you can play with!

Java 14 is out! And with it, we now have a preview of Java Records! We go over this newfangled feature... and get this... we finally did it! We actually recorded our first Video Podcast (Woohoo!). A great episode Number as well (episode 90) to start the road to Video (I know, I know, very 2005 of us), but now you can not only listen to our voices, but actually look at the code as we type so you can follow along!

So yeah, with records, we are essentially incorporating (almost natively) what some of Lombok's @Data features were, including default (sensible) implementations of equals and hashcode. A great episode to not only listen... but to watch! Let us know any feedback you have as we embark into Video (you know where to find us)

You heard it going around, everybody is talking about Kubernetes, and Minikube, when using Docker, and CLI. It's like a foreign language! While we know Java very well, with the advent of Devops, we are supposed to be Deployers, and Scalability Experts. Well, once you start going down this episode you'll become the DevOps Hero your company was waiting for!

Kubernetes is interesting because is a technology that matured almost in tandem with Docker. But Kubernetes is not Docker...Instead Kubernetes manages Docker Containers (among other things). So if you've been wondering what exactly it is? and were afraid (or just didn't know where to start), well, fear no more! We'll unveil all the Kubernetes mysteries

One of the first things that you learn to appreciate when you transition programming from hobby to a way of life is to find a good way to troubleshoot problems. Most of the time this means logging and monitoring, so for this episode we decided to interview Renaud Boutet who is DataDog's VP of Product Manager, and don't worry, he's really a developer that went to the "Management" (i.e. dark) side, so he knows what he's talking about!

Diving into topics from Logging Frameworks, to MDC, to a discussion of the three pillars of observability (Metrics, Traces, and Logs), this episode have good advice for everyone. From your first System.out.println ("I'm here") to your slf4j with MDC setup, you'll sure learn new tips and tricks!
