Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the DevOps Zone (December 05 - December 12). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. hack.summit() - Great Success!

  • hack.summit() 2014 has wrapped up. Here are some highlights from day 4, as well as some thoughts on the future of developer conventions.

2. Static Typing Is Not for Type Checking

  • In his post “Strong typing vs strong testing” Bruce Eckel described the idea that statically (or strongly) typed languages don’t give you much, because you should verify your programs with tests anyway. While this looks like a very good point initially, I have some objections.

3. How to Integrate Commercial Third-Party Artefacts into Your Maven Build

  • Maven is often criticised for being a bit obscure and intrusive. Compared to runner-ups Ant and Gradle, Maven allows for only little flexibility with respect to interpretation and thus custom adaptation of the build model.

4. Status Check on All Vagrant Machines

  • Lorna Jane has a tip for those running Vagrant machines.

5. JVM and Garbage Collection Interview Questions: The Beginners Guide

  • The Java Virtual Machine is the achilles heel of most developers and can cause even the most seasoned developers to be come unstuck
