Greetings from Vermont! In this NixMashup we lead with a tried and true Linux backup strategy with rsync, ssh and sudo. DHH uses his experience in Test Driven Development to bring reason to the religion. Up and scheduling with Cron. Primo Java 8 Lambda Examples. A Maven Introduction and 10 suggestions for improving Eclipse.
Putting Test Driven Development In Its Place
Refreshing post from Ruby on Rails Creator David Heinemeier Hansson on the place of Test First in application development. “Enough. No more. My name is David, and I do not write software test-first. I refuse to apologize for that any more, much less hide it. I’m grateful for what TDD did to open my eyes to automated regression testing, but I’ve long since moved on from the design dogma.”
Primo Lambda Examples
We might have previously linked to this excellent February 2014 post with 10 Lambda Expressions and Streams examples, but it’s a good time for a re-read in case we did.
An Introduction to Cron
There are several Linux Utilities with cool names, the Cron scheduling utility is one of the best. Here’s a good introduction.
Eclipse Improvement Suggestions
10 suggestions on improving Eclipse from Nguyen Anh Tuan, the author of the Maven Tutorial we just linked to. Several good points!
