Partner – CAST AI – NPI EA (tag = kubernetes)
The Kubernetes ecosystem is huge and quite complex, so it’s easy to forget about costs when trying out all of the exciting tools.
To avoid overspending on your Kubernetes cluster, definitely have a look at the free K8s cost monitoring tool from the automation platform CAST AI. You can view your costs in real time, allocate them, calculate burn rates for projects, spot anomalies or spikes, and get insightful reports you can share with your team.
Connect your cluster and start monitoring your K8s costs right away:

You can get some real insight into your CI pipelines, and into your tests by using Foresight.
This includes not just the basics but some actual, actionable data like Change Impact Analysis, where we can see the changes in a PR and correlate them to test runs and test coverage to show how they affect our builds:

At the very beginning of 2014 I decided to track my reading habits and share the best stuff here, on Baeldung.
2014 has been quite the year, covering each week with a review. I've been doing a lot more reading to make sure I cover and curate stuff that has value and is actually worth reading.
Let me know in the comments if you're finding my reviews interesting and useful.
Here we go…>> Mockito 2.0.4-beta
1. Spring and Java
A comprehensive guide to what value based classes mean in Java 8 (not much) and what will likely mean in Java 9 and beyond (a lot more).
The Hibernate Masterclass is moving forward, this time with a solid piece on pessimistic locking.
>> Using JDK 8 Streams to Convert Between Collections of Wrapped Objects and Collections of Wrapper Objects
An exploration of how to best leverage streams to deal with conversions between a value and a wrapper for that value.
Just a little bit of UI testing can bring a whole lot of trust in the fact that your app is running the way it should, and WebDriver/Selenium is a fantastic tool for that.
An solid overview of what JPA 2.1 brings to the table.

2. Technical and Musings
I guess the title speaks for itself on this one.
A sensible and pragmatic mindset for designing an application. These kinds of architecture/design disagreements will come up in a team, so having the right kind of mindset makes a world of difference. That, and egoless programming (which is not as easy as it sounds).
A nuance of managing your TODO list better. Or I should say – my TODO list, since it's something that I'm going to be mindful of and see if it makes a difference.
An important (but tricky) aspect to get right when doing any form of Agile – the importance of good ol' dialog.
A different way to think about stuff.
This one is a bit meta, but it was certainly an interesting read to see what other bloggers experience in terms of traffic and trends.

Earlier this year I introduced the “Pick of the Week” section here in my “Weekly Review”. If you're already on my email list – you got the pick already – hope you enjoyed it.
