Happy New Year everyone, with a little delay. I was busy in the first two weeks of this year preparing and delivering the “Leveraging Git” webinar. It turned out to be quite a success, but it also prevented me from doing my live session last Friday.
But this short break doesn’t mean I am not going to get busy with my blog and live blog again. This is what’s coming up.
Today, at 14:00 CET, I’ll go live again at https://vjeko.live/ and this time the topic is HttpClient patterns. I am going to demo how to get from a very naive HTTP execution based on direct invocations of HttpClient methods, to a robust, interface-driven architecture. Don’t miss this one.
On top of the live blog, I am going to try (yes, no promises here, but I’ll do my best) to follow up each live session with a write-up here on Vjeko.com. It seems that videos and presentations are not the best way to learn for many people, and a lot of people actually prefer reading things. Honestly, when it comes to “how-do-I-do-this-or-that”, I myself also often prefer reading a text to watching a video. Text is scrollable, copy/pasteable, searchable, skippable… Video is mostly none of these things. So, instead of me just demonstrating stuff, I’ll demonstrate it on Vjeko.live, then follow-up with written tutorial here on Vjeko.com. What do you think of this?
And finally, I totally enjoyed delivering the “Leveraging Git” webinar last week. I’ve also got very good comments from the audience, so I’ve got both motivation and ideas for future webinars. Over the next several months, I’m going to do at least one webinar per month, and the topics will be:
I will announce the dates and other details over the next few days.
All in all, I am really looking forward to this year. Even though COVID19 still dominates the communities and pushes all of us online, I am going to try to make the most out of it and be active online, hoping that soon this madness is over, and we can all meet again at a normal classroom training, a conference, or another kind of a community event.
Until then… see you in the cloud!
