announcement - icon User management is very complex, when implemented properly. No surprise here.

Not having to roll all of that out manually, but instead integrating a mature, fully-fledged solution - yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
That's basically what Frontegg is - User Management for your application. It's focused on making your app scalable, secure and enjoyable for your users.
From signup to authentication, it supports simple scenarios all the way to complex and custom application logic.

At the very beginning of last year, I decided to track my reading habits and share the best stuff here, on Baeldung. Haven't missed a review since.

Here we go…

1. Spring and Java

>> Intersection Types to give Lambdas Multiple Personalities [javaspecialists.eu]

You're probably still not using lamdas to their full potential. I know I'm not.

>> JAR Hell [codefx.org]

A good, nuanced reference to an old problem – dependency management.

>> The Danger of Subtype Polymorphism Applied to Tuples [jooq.org]

A deep-dive into tuples – what's not cool about that?

>> The Spring Boot Dashboard in STS – Part 3: Spring Boot Devtools reloaded [spring.io]

Further exploration of the new Boot support in Eclipse STS – specifically, dynamic redeploying changes.

2. Technical

>> In Defence of Monoliths [bozho.net]

An interesting, critical look into the premises behind the microservice hype we've been experiencing as a community.

It's definitely important to understand that a microservice architecture doesn't fit everything; in practice, it makes sense for a lot less systems than it's actually used for.

One of the most significant advantages that I find in this style of architecture is not purely technical – it's the lighter conceptual load of the system. For a small to medium system with 10-20 developers working on it – that's not such a huge concern, but you really start seeing the upside once you get into over 100 developers working on the same codebase.

3. Musings

>> Agile is not now, nor was it ever, Waterfall [cleancoder.com]

Good points about practical Agile.

>> Remote versus Co-located Work [martinfowler.com]

Remote work is a subject that's near and dear to me, as that's my own approach to work and have been for years.

This writeup doesn't skimp on the details and really offers up a vision for the future of work that's definitely worth considering.

Also worth reading:

4. Comics

And my favorite Dilberts of the week:

>> None Taken [dilbert.com]

>> Married guys can take a higher setting [dilbert.com]
