NixMashup for April 27, 2014

Greetings from Vermont! In this NixMashup we see the benefits of building products in public. Twenty interesting JavaScript plugins. An awesome utility to manage cloud servers from your Linux Desktop Panel. Several Java source code-heavy links today. Default Methods and their similarity to the .NET Extension Method pattern, Java Static Nested Classes, Functional Interfaces and Instance Initializers. A high level comparison of Scala and Java. Graphs demonstrating App domination over the browser in mobile.

If you want to catch all of the NixMashup link action and see the links as they are created, follow the NixMash Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/nixmash. Most NixMashup links are first posted to the NixMash feed for later compilation here in NixMashup.
