A large part of monitoring production systems, verifying deployments or verifying fixes is essentially to wait and see if a problem occurs. Why wait though? Why not identify problems before disaster strikes?
Based on the idea that binary files can be served up on a silver tray, Bintray seeks to give developers a place to post and to consume binary packages. It's a little like Github or Maven, but it's also a little bit different. The project is still sowing seeds in beta tests right now. Will those seeds bear fruit?

When sitting in the interview chair with a career opportunity on the line, it's a natural temptation to give in on the price in order to secure the job. Resist that temptation, because a poor starting salary negotiation can hurt a software pro's career potential, job satisfaction and even the success of the employer's business.
When it comes to scalability, the Java programming language is at DEFCON ONE, even though many in the community refuse to admit there's a problem. Why won't Java scale? It's not a complicated issue. The problem is that everyone gives a complicated explanation. This is the simple and straight forward explanation you were looking for, explaining in simple terms why Java won't scale.
After reviewing Martijn Verburg's latest book entitled The Well-Grounded Developer, we started thinking about what topics we felt the book may have left out, and what topics should have been included. So we're asking you, what do you think makes a Java developer 'well-grounded' and 'well-rounded?'
It's not an 'either-or' situation when trying to figure out how to best solve your big-data problems. Sometimes you need a schema. Sometimes you don't. And sometimes you need both systems to work together. Here's a real world case study on how Craigslist did just that with their billion and a half records.
