Business value gone wild

This blog post will not be about microservices, Spring or any technology that I've already talked about in Too much coding blog. This time it will be my opinion on two subjects
  • the more and more frequent "it's not my problem" approach in the IT industry running in a corporation. 
  • the "business value" frenzy of the management
This article is definitely not a motivational one. Quite frankly, you might get depressed after reading it. Nonetheless, it's better to know how really corporate life sometimes looks like rather than get hit in the face.

TL;DR : the more you care in a corporate enterprise the worse for you. Eventually some developers will hate your ideas of quality and standards because they are paid to tap the keys. Your management will fire you for not bringing "business value". The faster you embrace it, the better for you - you'll start searching for a new job sooner.

Microservice Deployment

It's been a while since my last post. In the meantime of course nothing has changed in terms of the microservice hype. I've been  attending many microservice's talks and what I'm always missing are concrete details on many different subjects. One of which is deployment. In this post I'll try to depict how at 4financeIT we want to do microservice deployment. I'll walk you through the most basic deployment pipeline that we'll try to open-source as Jenkins Job DSL on Github.

How to speed up your Gradle build from 90 to 8 minutes

Displaying graph of microservices with micro-infra-spring

Doing microservices with micro-infra-spring


We've been working at 4financeit for last couple of months on some open source solutions for microservices. I will be publishing some articles related to microservices and our tools and this is the first of (hopefully) many that I will write in the upcoming weeks (months?) on Too much coding blog.

This article will be an introduction to the micro-infra-spring library showing how you can quickly set up a microservice using our tools.
