Congratulations on your new book, I have always impressed with Trisha Gee's other works and presentations, I guess
this is another feather on the cap.

As a java developer, in this day of Functional programming & Reactive programming,
How imperative this is to have knowledge of these new programming methodologies?


Warm Regards
Sundar

It's impossible to know everything, and keeping up to date with every paradigm, framework, etc. may not even be the right way to pursue knowledge. There are, in fact, a couple of pieces in the book that deal with learning and navigating the vast quantity of change and information out there. My personal take is that it helps to consider what you need to keep up with. Prioritise and separate out things you want to specialise and dive deep into from the things where you are happy to pick up tourist-level knowledge, and those from things where awareness that they exist is enough. You will your priorities change with time and as your knowledge grows.

Thanks for the reply I would agree to these points, given the great rush of technologies, methodologies it is simply impossible to keep
up with them even within the Java ecosystem there are simply too many things out there.
