After coding for a while (eek, almost 20 years or so in my case, time flies when you’re having fun), one starts to embrace those habits. Because, you know… Anything that Can Possibly Go Wrong, Does. This is why people embrace “defensive programming”, i.e.…

Have you ever wondered how you could express a predicate that “feels” like the following, in SQL: /u/CyBerg90 has, on reddit. The idea was to create a predicate that yields true whenever both values Var1 and Var2 yield either 1, 2, or 3. The canonical…

A short while ago, I gave this answer on Quora. The question was “What is the significance of NULL in SQL?” and most of the existing answers went on about citing C.J. Date or Tony Hoare and unanimously declared NULL as “evil”. So, everyone rants about…

There was an interesting discussion recently on the jOOQ mailing list about jOOQ’s current lack of out-of-the-box support for TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE data types. No one said that date, time and timezones are easy! There’s an amusing piece here, which I…

Our recent article “NULL is Not The Billion Dollar Mistake. A Counter-Rant” got us a lot of reads, controversial comments, and a 50/50 upvote / downvote ratio pretty much everywhere a blog post can be posted and voted on. This was expected. Objectively,…

Functional programming allows for quasi-declarative programming in a general purpose language. By using powerful fluent APIs like Java 8’s Stream API, or jOOλ’s sequential Stream extension Seq or more sophisticated libraries like javaslang or…

Your data fits in RAM. Yes, it does. Don’t believe it? Visit the hilarious yourdatafitsinram.com website. But there is an entirely new dimension to this since last week’s announcement by Intel, which hasn’t gotten enough attention in the blogosphere yet.…

Oracle will remove the internal sun.misc.Unsafe class in Java 9. While most people are probably rather indifferent regarding this change, some other people – mostly library developers – are not. There had been a couple of recent articles in the…

When running a Maven build with many plugins (e.g. the jOOQ or Flyway plugins), you may want to have a closer look under the hood to see what’s going on internally in those plugins, or in your extensions of those plugins. This may not appear obvious when…

Sehr feines Essen und sehr freundliche Bedienung

The idea and the concept looks very interesting, and I still believe that there are many happy customers at Outfittery. In my case, however, things just didn't work out. First off, I discovered myself that I have a rather difficult taste. Out of around 15 sweaters that Outfittery has mailed me, I liked and kept only 1. I'm not sure if this could've been a better success, but I'm sure I'll get a better ratio when going to the store directly, or at Zalando. But that could've been just me. What's much worse is the fact that billing didn't work at all. I returned the package with everything but 1 sweater. I immediately paid the sweater by wire transfer. The package as well as my payment were "lost" at Outfittery and my credit card was billed in full (1500 CHF!) While I did get a chargeback after several E-Mails, there is a very awkward feeling left with the whole transaction. There were around 15 E-Mails in total for a single order just to settle the technical problems they were having, and lots of automated e-mails telling me that another credit card charge is imminent. On the plus side, once I interacted with a human, they were nice and helpful. Unfortunately, every time I wrote E-Mails with a human, the automated E-Mail followed up telling me about additional charges again...

Es ist unglaublich, dass man für ein gewöhnliches Entrecôte CHF 42 bezahlt, und dann noch nicht mal eine Beilage hat. Das ist mal wieder eines dieser total überbewerteten und überteuerten zürcher Restaurants, wo ich lieber gar nie hingegangen wäre. Ich kann mir beim besten Willen nicht vorstellen, weswegen es immer gerammelt voll ist. Wahrscheinlich zählt in diesen Stadtkreisen Preis / Leistung weniger als dabei sein und gesehen zu werden... Ich mags den Besitzern gönnen. Sind bestimmt reich geworden!

Sensationelles Essen, Günstige Preise, Freundliche Bedienung und urchiges Flair. In dieser Kombination gibt's das sonst nur auf dem Lande. Sehr empfehlenswert ist das Menu mit Suppe, Hauptgang, Dessert, Wein und Kaffee für CHF 45!

Der beste Ort für gemütliches Jassen am Abend. Könnte vielleicht noch etwas billiger sein.
