Partner – DBSchema – NPI EA – (tag = SQL)
DbSchema is a super-flexible database designer, which can take you from designing the DB with your team all the way to safely deploying the schema.
The way it does all of that is by using a design model, a database-independent image of the schema, which can be shared in a team using GIT and compared or deployed on to any database.
And, of course, it can be heavily visual, allowing you to interact with the database using diagrams, visually compose queries, explore the data, generate random data, import data or build HTML5 database reports.

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.

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:

1. The 2015 Numbers
Spring 4 came out in December 2013 and it's been slowly ramping up ever since.
In May 2015, I ran a survey that puts Spring 4 adoption at 65% and Spring Boot adoption at 34%.
2. The New 2016 Spring Numbers
Last week I just wrapped up a the new “Java and Spring in 2016” survey and received 2253 answers from the community.
In March of 2016, 81.1% of Spring users are using Spring 4 – so definitely a lot of growth since last years 65%:
3. The Spring Boot Numbers
Spring Boot is even more interesting, growing from 34% last year to 52.8%:
The new numbers are quite interesting, especially the Spring Boot ones which clearly show Boot reached critical mass as it broke the 50% mark.
Out of the full 2255 participants, 388 (17.2%) voted as not using Spring – but keep in mind that my audience is skewed towards Spring developers.
And of course Spring 5 is less than a year away and 4.3 is even closer – so things are going to be just as fast-paced in 2016.
