This is the first part of a series of articles looking at the underlying execution and resource consumption model of Akka based applications.
Cloud based IDEs stink. And most developers couldn't care less if their JIRA install was local or in the cloud. So, while Java developers are certainly capable of using cloud based technologies, have the technologies themselves really had any impact on how development is done? After all, a class diagram is still a class diagram, regardless of whether an organization is using a design tool that's...
