Beginning NetBeans

Geertjan Wielenga (NetBeans product manager) wrote a book about the NetBeans IDE. When NetBeans 8.1 was released, my review German review about his book had been published [1]. Now, I found some time to write an English review, too. Read about it on my review site [2].



Java Lambdas and (parallel) Streams

Last month, Geertjan and me talked at JUG Cologne. After he presented new NetBeans features, I talked about Java Lambdas and (parallel) Streams. On the same day, I presented my book about this issue. Unlike my JSF book, I wrote about this matter in German.

If you missed some fresh articles about JSF or NetBeans on this blog, there is a simple reason: During the last weeks, I translated my book into English. And it became ready last weekend.

I’m proud to announce my new book “Java Lambdas and (parallel) Streams”.
