Taking a renewed look at Groovy, the under-hyped yet ubiquitous JVM based language, and how it makes database scripting easy.

New blog post up... a 4-part series on the new cross-platform .NET changes, for curious Java developers.
An overview of the open source and cross-platform changes coming to the .NET world, from the perspective of Java developers new to this platform.

The next article in my "#Go for #Java Programmers" series is up, covering built-in data types.

I agree, that the example with TimeUnit is much more intuitive and readable than the shown "old pattern".

It just occured to me that I'm a strong critic of the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Indians, due to their names or logos... yet I'm a huge fan of the Apache Software Foundation.  Huh.

Apache doesn't have a name or logo that is offensive. Redskin is offensive as is the chief wahoo from Cleveland.

If you've been reading about cross-platform changes coming to .NET, but aren't familiar enough to understand what that hype really means... then this series gives a pretty detailed walkthrough of the new platform from a Java developer perspective, comparing the new pieces to their approximate Java counterparts.

Thanks for clearing that up Steve, I've been under the impression that it's everything Microsoft or nothing at all

After a busy summer's delay, the holiday season has allowed me to regain some traction on my "Go for Java Programmers" series.  This latest article compares Go's basic data types to their Java counterparts.  I hope to have the next article (on struct and interface types) up within the next couple of weeks.

As always, corrections and critiques are appreciated!
