1. The Dark Side of Java 8

So far, we’ve been showing the thrilling parts of this new major release. But there are also caveats. Lots of them.

2. Common Misconceptions About Java

I’ll try to explain my favorite 5 misconceptions about Java.

3. How to process stream and read text file in Java 8

4. Johnny Five: a nice introduction to Arduino

Learning Arduino is not simple, especially if you’re not C-minded. It took me a while to see the potential, but if you think about it and join a Raspberry Pi running Node.js with an Arduino with Firmata, there’s not a lot you can’t do.

5. How Not to Use Java 8 Default Methods
