Hi Pini, Jamie, and Michelle,

I found it interesting that you have a fictional aspect to your book. What made you decide to go that route?

Thanks!

Hi Viktor,

What changes would a software developer in a DevOps setup experience coming from a traditional IT department?

Thanks!
Hi Ron,

What's your take on Java as a beginner language? Java was my first programming language in the late 2000s. Looking back, I think Python would have been a better introductory language.

The table of contents of your book look really interesting. I'm looking forward to checking it out.

Thanks!

Hi Jeanne and Scott,

Congrats on the book. Would there be any benefit for a developer with 10 years of experience to become Java certified?

Thanks!
I was hoping someone would have real world examples on how obtaining a Spring certification has helped with their career. Thanks!

Hi Roger,

Is this more of a web server hosting problem? Like in Tomcat/webapps you are trying to run the same application twice? You could just rename the second application. Or you could create another virtual directory (like webapps2) and have that one running on another port. So it would be something like
       original : https : xxx.com:8443/dashboard
       v2.0     : https : xxx.com:9443/dashboard

As far as source control, I'm not sure. Hopefully someone else can help with that.

I have worked in large companies who own their own server hardware but have them located in data centres. From a practical point of view this is not so dissimilar to 'cloud' services. They're both server resources you don't have physical access to. You make some gains in not having to maintain the hardware and manage security updates, and you incur some costs in having to learn and navigate a 3rd party management console application to administer your resources.



Hi Tim,

I see what you are saying. And yes, there are situations where you basically move the same applications to an offsite server. However, what I'm noticing is a trend to make applications more SaaS solutions, having basically all setup and maintenance done by the vendor and running at their site. By 'I.T. departments', I was referring to companies that don't sell software, like insurance, gov. agencies, and schools for example. Developers in these areas are going to have a tougher time making a case for their positions. I'm not saying it's a bad thing. It will just be a big change.
