Interesting threads from this month:

Even though there hasn't been a lot of traffic, there was some very interesting stuff... there were some topics about Streams, Maps and Comparators that got some very good replies, always worth re-reading.

  • Sometines is a simple for-loop easier than a modern stream!
  • a topic about the differenced between the Compare and Comparator interfaces, with some excellent replies.
  • a nice topic about rounding a double.
  • and a very interesting topic for brginners about creating objects.

  • A cow for the Opening Posters, and a special thank you to Rob Spoor, for giving some excellent replies with very clear explanations. See for instance here: click and here: click

    Can I elect him for the title "CodeRancher" of the month"?

    And thanks to Campbell et all for some useful suggestions!

    I (Piet Souris) studied for Math teacher, but ended up as an actuary in life- and non-life insurances. Retired a few years ago. I've never been involved professionally in the IT business (although I worked a lot with the guys and gals), but I used things like Visual Basic, R, and Excel for my daily work. I started with java around 2010, when I had bought a PC and I was looking for some free programming language. Currently struggling with some health problems, and getting P5.js to work. I see a question coming!
