The struggle to stay up to date is real...

We all know the software development industry is a non stop innovation avalanche
barreling down a mountain.




So staying up to date with all the tech you touch is becoming a real struggle. When I started out as a developer many years back, I felt staying on the bleeding edge wasn't too bad.
I mean I needed to know and keep in touch with:

  • My main language and some of its main frameworks..  Java / Junit / Hibernate   
  • Some html, javascript, applets, JSP tags
  • Some RDBMS and SQL.. Latest changes on Oracle / SQL Server, how their indexing strategies change between versions etc.

These days however the list of technologies, frameworks, languages and tools has just exploded.

I have in some way or other worked with, tried, read about, implemented, studied, interested in or affected by the following in the last year. Most of which have shipped so much functionality it's actually mind boggling :

  • Java
    • Java 7 to 8 
    • Frameworks: Spring, Spring Cloud, Spring Boot, Hibernate 
  • JavaScript
  • TypeScript
  • Go
  • Python
  • Testing:
    • JUnit, Cucumber, Pact.IO, Selenium, Jasmine, Karma, Protractor, Hamcrest, Shazamcrest, Mockito
  • AngularJS
  • Angular 2 / 4
  • Docker
    • Docker, Compose, Swarm
  • AWS
    • Lambda, DynamoDB, Step Functions, S3, Cognito, ECS, EC2, VPC, Cloud Formation
  • Netflix
  • Elastic Search
  • LogStash, Kibana
  • Weblogic
  • Tomcat
  • Kubernetes
  • Kafka
  • Pivotal Cloud Foundry
  • Caching
    • Hazelcast, Redis, EHCache
  • Storage
    • Oracle, MongoDB, Prometheus.io, Neo4J, H2, MySQL, InfluxDB
  • Build + CI/CD
    • Jenkins, Bamboo, Concourse
  • Git
  • Windows Server, MacOS, Linux, iOS
  • Blockchain

I am pretty sure there are a couple others that I am missing... and not mentioning the architectural styles, patterns, agile practices and the like so prevalent in our industry.

What sparked this blog post was watching the DockerCon Videos from May...
I would say I use Docker pretty regularly, generally on quite simple use cases for my own development and some work related projects...
But watching the videos below I realized that I had completely missed out on a ton of new functionality I didn't know about...

The reason I could watch a DockerCon video 11AM on a Wednesday morning is because I am current between countries and therefore between jobs... So I have a week or 2 to kill, and obviously I jump at the opportunity to go check out some of the latest stuff...

However seeing how many changes there were and that I missed a lot of it...
I think I may need to schedule "tech-cations" every couple months to just gorge on all that is new for a couple days.. or hopefully with the use of public transport in my new city, I can cram in another hour or so of podcasts or videos into my daily schedule.

  20. Tongkat Ali ist eine Pflanze beheimatet in Südostasien. Sie gehört zur Gattung der Bittereschengewächse und Ihr botanischer Name lautet “Eurycoma longifolia”.
    Maca Kapseln Es gibt noch eine weitere Reihe länderspezifischer Namen
    wie z. B. “Pasak Bumi”, wie die Pflanze in Indonesien genannt wird oder “longjack”, die allgemeine Bezeichnung für Tongkat Ali Kaufen in den USA, Kanada und Australien.

    Das Ursprungsland von Tongkat Ali Kaufen ist Indonesien, daher findet man auch dort auch die größten Bestände. Weitere Vorkommen gibt es in Ländern wie Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam und Laos.

    Die Einnahme von Tongkat Ali Kaufen empfiehlt sich insbesondere für Leistungssportler, die einen schnellen
    Muskelaufbau und Muskelzuwachs anstreben und nicht auf illegale und künstliche Substanzen zurückgreifen möchten um Ihren Testosteronspiegel zu erhöhen.

    Generell empfiehlt sich eine Einnahme von Tongkat Ali für alle Männer ab dem 30ten Lebensjahr, da in dieser Phase nachweislich die Produktion von körpereigenem Testosteron zurückgeht. Dies macht sich vor allem dadurch bemerkbar dass die körperliche Leistungsfähigkeit nachlässt, die Lust auf Sex spürbar abnimmt und dadurch allgemein das Selbstwertgefühl negativ beeinflusst wird.

    Mit der Einnahme von Tongkat Ali können Sie nachweislich Ihre Libido steigern, Ihr Testosteron erhöhen und Ihre gewohnte Lebensenergie aus den jungen Jahren Ihres Lebens wieder herbeiführen. Hier können Sie übrigens weitere Informationen bekommen zum Thema ‘Libido steigern‘ ganz natürlich. Sollten Sie daran interessiert sein lohnt es sich auch unseren Artikel über Butea Superba zu lesen.

    Tongkat Ali wächst als Strauch und kann Höhen von bis zu 12 Metern erreichen. Typischerweise dauert es 10-15 Jahre bis solche Ausmaße erreicht werden. Der Strauch trägt anfangs grüne Blüten die sich im Laufe der Zeit, bis zur Reife, rot färben.

    Allerdings sind die Blüten im Hinblick auf die Wirkung der Pflanze weniger interessant. Der wertvolle Teil verbirgt sich unter der Erde.
    Im Laufe der Jahre wachsen die Wurzeln teilweise senkrecht und bis zu mehrere Meter tief in den Boden, was die Ernte zu einer schweren und mühsamen Arbeit werden lässt. Je älter die Wurzeln sind, desto höher ist auch die Anzahl der Wirkstoffe Butea Superba.
    Von daher gilt es einige Dinge zu beachten sollten Sie Tongkat Ali kaufen wollen.
