Episode 77. Sql or NoSql, To Normalize or to Not Normalize… that (STILL) is the question

Episode 77. Sql or NoSql, To Normalize or to Not Normalize… that (STILL) is the question

So you may have thought about using NoSQL or a Document Database for taking care of you needs. But do you know why that might be not be a good (or a pretty bad idea?). Or you may have a Database that have been running fine, but it seems that you can’t work with it anymore? (Is it time to move to NoSql? Would it help?).

We dive into the “Why” would you choose Databases vs NoSQL Data Stores, or when to ditch your MongoDB and actually come back to MySQL. In our current time of “WebScale” and “CloudReady” we get bombarded by choices! (Mongo, Dynamo, MariaDB, ElasticSearch) and while some of the offerings are great, it might not mean that is the Right choice for what we need to store.

So take a listen as we explore normalization and the strength and weaknesses of relational data vs unstructured data.

Episode 54. Bug Hunt! (The essential skills of the great Debugger)

As a developer, we probably spend most of our time figuring out what went wrong. Debugging really an art, and we sometimes get intimidated by it. Well, if you ever found a bug that has trying to scare you, never fear! Bob and I walk through how to become a master debugger and just Zap those bugs away!

Episode 43. Don’t cross the Streams (Streams in Java 8)

So now we deep dive into what the “Real” advantages of Java 8 are :). The lambdas were just a head-fake (to quote Randy Pausch), the real meat is all the support that was brought because of lambdas, most importantly Streams. Streams are now pervasive in Java 8, and thanks to the way it was implemented is mostly backwards compatible! Oh boy, take a listen to start really tapping into the power of Lambdas and Java 8!

Episode 42. Oh Lambda, Lambda, Lambda (no Omega Muu)

Lambdas… You have heard about it, it’s like those celebrities that are everywhere (Tom Selleck). Well, is time to go and actually meet the great start. In this episode, me (Freddy) and Bob go deep into Lambdas, what they really are (are they magical?) and why would you want to use them. So Join in and let’s listen to the most awaited feature of Java 8!

Episode 40. Don’t you hate when static gives you an unexpected jolt? (Discussion on static methods,classes, and inner classes)

So you have programmed for a while, and may even never realized that you have been using them, but there are static methods (which in turn can create static classes), inner classes and static inner classes. Sometimes is hard to understand why or when to use these, but never fear! After listening to this episode you will never get an unexpected static surprise!

Episode 37. Of Bits and Masks and Bytes and Trees and Games

Have you ever wonder how bit masking work (or what is that?) and why do you need it? Or why a tree structure exists? (or what is breadth first vs depth first), or what are game trees? We put our Computer Science hat and go “depth first” in some fundamental compsci concepts, and, more importantly their utility, ending with Game trees (and they are not only used for games)!

Episode 36. An Intro to Multithreading Programming

This is a presentation I did for the Chicago Java Users Group on the topic of multithreading. There are some solid foundations in here to start tackling multithreading programming. Some of it might’ve been already been seen in depth from our other episodes, but in all, it has good foundations for anyone that does multithreading programming.

Episode 35. Recursion, Doubles and Strings (A little for everyone!)

You remember recursion right? that ugly, confusing thing they made you do either on CS-300, or at job interviews. Have you ever wondered how to make it safe and right? and why do we really use recursion? In this episode we go into proper recursion programming (and lose the fear of making it wrong), and understand why stacks get filled with it, and what problems do they really solve (answer, not many).
In addition we talk about the nature of Double objects, vs double the primitive (And why it is so hard to do == comparisons in doubles), plus some little known things about Strings (like interning). In all it has a little bit for everyone, so take a listen!

Episode 33. Does code dream when it hibernates? A quick look on the big things of Hibernate

Databases have been around forever! (or at least from the 1970s) and there are many things that try to hook Object Objected Programming with Relational Databases (namely, O/R mappers). Hibernate is the most known O/R mapper and, while effective sometimes it can be confusing. In this podcast we delve on how to understand our misunderstood friend, and finally fix those pesky weird Hibernate exceptions once and for all!

Episode 31. Know your bounds! Generic bounds that is (a story that extends super!)

Big shout-out to everyone I met at JavaOne (including some avid podcast listeners!). Thanks for listening and for a great time down at JavaOne! Don’t worry, we will be sharing all the stuff I learned on new episodes of the podcast.

It is also our Birthday (We have been airing episodes for a year!)! Happy to celebrate with everyone a year of the podcast (and if you want to celebrate it, treat me a beer! 🙂 ).

With this episode we wrap the concept of generics and bounds (super / extends) and talk about type erasure (and compiler warnings that goes ‘Hm, dunno what you’re doing but I can’t make sure it’s right’

And, that…is that!
