I think it’s a trade-off between paranoid programming and pragmatic design. As long as I’m providing expected behavior in the app without opening up a security hole, some validations may be skipped on purpose.
Here are some tricks using Spring to make the Mule Management Console better. We'll implement a system that helps to diagnose consistently failing flows and send error messages in batches.
Groupon moves to Node.js, StackEdit becomes the best new markdown editor, John Resig creates a Twitter list of women who code, and Randall Munroe writes a comic on functional programming. Those stories, plus a tool that makes you into an elite hacker like you see in the movies.
There's a very important visual side to your APIs. A few key things like a nice font, a color palette, and an overall theme can really make your API sing.
