Bloggers are a different breed. They’re spending a lot of time investigating issues in a systematic way that is presentable to others. And then they share – mostly just for the fun of it and for the rewarding feeling sharing gives them. Whenever we google for a technical issue, chances are high that we stumble upon such a blog post.
One of the best blogs out there is Petri Kainulainen’s Do You Want to be a Better Software Developer? Petri has also written a book about Spring Data, which is available from Amazon, O’Reilly and Packt Publishing.
Most recently, I have found his two Maven-related tutorials very useful and well-written:
- FindBugs Maven Plugin Tutorial
- Integration Testing with Maven
- Creating Profile Specific Configuration Files With Maven
Also, in 2013, he has written an extensive series of blog posts titled “What I Learned This Week”. Some examples:
Petri’s blog is certainly one that you should follow. His posts are very well structured and quite complete. Currently, he’s also writing an extensive series about jOOQ, which is a very useful additional resource for new jOOQusers.
Thanks for all this great content, Petri!
