It’s been a good release time recently! I’m blogging here at Too Much Coding blog more about releases then about any concrete topics ;)

After releasing Spring Cloud Sleuth as a part of Brixton RC1 we have just released a version 1.0.4 of AccuREST. We’ve fixed a couple of bugs but we’ve introduced a couple of big features including:

This post will describe the latter feature in more depth.

On the 24.03.2016 we’ve managed to move our release train called Brixton to the next station: RC1. I’m really happy about this cause it cost us a lot of energy but it was worth it!

I’m recently mostly focusing on the Spring Cloud Sleuth project and actually quite gigantic changes happened there since the M5 release. In this short post I’ll show you the rationale and describe briefly the features related to span naming and customizations related to span propagation.

I’m more than happy to announce that I’ve finally migrated from Blogspot to a decent blogging technology - Octopress! Thanks to Tomek Dziurko who was the one that suggested to choose that technology.

Also as you can see I’ve finally bought a domain for the Too Much Coding blog which is http://toomuchcoding.com. I don’t even know why I’m writing it since you can see the address in your browser ;) You can also send me an email at blog (at) toomuchcoding.com.

Even though initially I had some doubts about choosing Octopress I have to admit that it seems like an awesome technology and you should definitely give it a try!

P.S. We’re looking for sponsors for the upcoming Warsaw GR8 Day Conference (19.03.2016). Over 60 people have already registered! Contact us to be a part of this gr8 event!

This blog post will not be about microservices, Spring or any technology that I've already talked about in Too much coding blog. This time it will be my opinion on two subjects
  • the more and more frequent "it's not my problem" approach in the IT industry running in a corporation. 
  • the "business value" frenzy of the management
This article is definitely not a motivational one. Quite frankly, you might get depressed after reading it. Nonetheless, it's better to know how really corporate life sometimes looks like rather than get hit in the face.

TL;DR : the more you care in a corporate enterprise the worse for you. Eventually some developers will hate your ideas of quality and standards because they are paid to tap the keys. Your management will fire you for not bringing "business value". The faster you embrace it, the better for you - you'll start searching for a new job sooner.
