Episode 76. Tick...tock...Time to upgrade to Java 11!

It's coming! If you have been using Oracle Java 8, you should know that starting on January 2019 we will have to get an oracle license for running Oracle's JDK in production. OR, if you want to keep using Oracle Java (or OpenJDK) for free, and still receive security updates, then you gotta move to 11!
In this episode we have no other than @DrDeprecator itself giving us a tour on what are the less-known changes (and goodies) that are coming when upgrading from 8 to 11. We go through most of the JEPs that usually don't make the news but are actually pretty awesome!
So take a listen, and start downloading the new Java 11!

Have you been curious on what makes Kotlin interesting, and "fun?". Have you been thinking of taking it for a spin? Well, wait no more! Listen to this episode as Todd takes us through the coolest part of Kotlin!

Episode 74. Unit and...Integration Tests, JaCoCo, Docker and Coverage (and more!)

In this episode we interview Janine Patterson on her talk of "Integration Test Coverage with JaCoCo" and dive into the nuances of Units vs Integration tests. We dive into Gherkin sentences as we use Cucumber, and challenges of integration tests (hint... use Docker). We also dive into the best way to execute these (Spring Runner). In all, if you were interested in upping your integration testing game, this is the one episode to listen to!
