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

>> 1 Stream, 2 Applications, and 3 Dependencies for Spring Cloud Data Flow [spring.io]

The Spring Initializr is getting a lot of love lately, and here's a quick sampling as to why that is.

>> Kotlin’s killer features [codecentric.de]

A quick and interesting look at the new kind on the JVM block.

>> Persistence Expert Roundup: What’s coming in 2016 [thoughts-on-java.org]

Some cool insights and a look at what's coming in the Java persistence ecosystem.

>> Event Driven Microservices with Spring Cloud Stream [codecentric.de]

This is a great writeup on approaching the microservice problem in an intelligent way.

I am doing quite a bit of work recently with Event Sourcing and this piece fits right into that story – so definitely a good read.

>> Swagger for Akka HTTP [codecentric.de]

A weird combination here, but now that I think about it, it certainly makes sense using Swagger to document the API of a product like Akka HTTP.

>> Spring MVC: Trgger manual validation of a form object [codeleak.pl]

Really short and really practice tips on manually triggering validation in Spring.

Also worth reading:

Webinars and presentations:

Time to upgrade:

2. Technical

>> Getting the Picture [tbray.org]

This is a quick read and a hard-earned lesson – definitely click this one.

>> Obtaining Login Tokens for an Outlook, Office or Azure Account [whitton.io]

I always thoroughly enjoy reading through these kinds of in-depth attacks.

I think it's good practice to know what's out there and how it's getting compromised, when I'm doing my own security implementations.

This one definitely looks like a promising read, so it's at the top of my weekend reading list.

Also worth reading:

3. Musings

>> The Cost of Being Right [daedtech.com]

A Gary V likes to say – 99% of things don't matter. Most things you think matter, don't actually matter.

That still makes me cringe a bit when I think of my own need to be “right” in the first few years of my career.

>> Being shallow is rational [lemire.me]

A high level look at the way most things are changing faster now that they've ever been before – and how we need to stop being romantic about the way we learn if we want to adapt.

Also worth reading:

4. Comics

And my favorite Dilberts of the week:

>> Here comes leadership [dilbert.com]

>> Ignorance has a tell [dilbert.com]

>> You totally get me [dilbert.com]


5. Pick of the Week

Continuing on the same general idea as last week's pick:

>> Being tired isn’t a badge of honor [m.signalvnoise.com]
