Reading List ::: from JavaSpecialists

Issue 293 - Canonical Orders

Should we write "public abstract static class" or "public static abstract class"? And should fields be "final static private" or "private static final"? In this newsletter we explore the canonical order of modifiers in Java.

Issue 292 - StartingGun Synchronizer

CountDownLatch is easy to understand, but can be hard to use, especially the await() method that throws InterruptedException. In this newsletter we show how we can create our own synchronizer based on the AbstractQueuedSynchronizer.

Issue 291 - Snakes and Ladders

"Would you like to play with me?" - Summer holidays are a good time to relax and whip out a board game or two. In this newsletter we explore a children's favourite - snakes and ladders, with a simulation written in Java.

Issue 290 - CopyOnWriteArrayList and Collection.toArray()

When is it safe for a CopyOnWriteArrayList to accept the result from a toArray() method? In the past, the only thing that mattered was that the type was Object[]. But this was changed in 2020 to only accept the array if the source was a java.util.ArrayList.

Issue 289 - MergingSortedSpliterator

If we have a List>, each stream with sorted elements, how can we generate a sorted Stream, taking one at a time from each stream? In this newsletter we show how to do that with the Stream API and by writing our own MergingSortedSpliterator.

Podcast: Growing Teams and Retaining Culture in Remote Health Care

In this podcast Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods, spoke to Damon Lanphear about recruiting and growing remote teams, hanging the interviewing process, governance as an accelerator of innovation and applying AI to primary healthcare.

Article: Why the Future of Monitoring Is Agentless

Traditionally, monitoring software has relied heavily on agent-based approaches for extracting telemetry data from systems. Observability requires better telemetry than agents currently provide. OpenTelemetry is driving advances in this area by creating a standard format and APIs to create, transmit, and store telemetry data. This unlocks new opportunities in observability.

Google's Dev Library is a Curated Collection of Projects about Google Tech

Google has launched a new initiative aimed at creating a curated collection of open source projects related to Google technologies. Google's Dev Library will not only contain code repositories, but also articles, tools, and tutorials collected from various Internet sources.

By Sergio De Simone

Article: Soulful Socio-Technical Architecture

Happy developers make happy customers and stakeholders. Authority is ineffective with competent and knowledgeable teams. Socio-technical systems design provides a new worldview of what constitutes quality of working life and humanism at work. To create a magic environment where the soul of our teams can thrive, we need to create the conditions for strong relationships to develop and flourish.

How a Safe-to-Fail Approach Can Enable Psychological Safety in Teams

Companies can establish a culture of psychological safety among their employees, a culture in which failing is not frowned upon but rather is accepted as something that can happen to anyone. Safe-to-fail should be part of the corporate culture. A shift in the way we envision success can lead to a better understanding of where failure lies and provide courage to overcome our fears.
