How to Build Java Applications Today?

Confused smiley

I Help You Answer This Question!

In my monthly updated “Java Full-Stack Index”, I recommend JVM languages, databases, back-end frameworks, and front-end frameworks. My recommendations are based on popularity, industry analysis, and my 22 years of Java experience. For popularity, I analyze job ads from 63 countries, online training students, Stack Overflow questions, and Google searches.

I also help you get started with technologies that are important for us Java developers.

I share slides, videos, additional information, and links to get started for my conference and JUG talks.

Why Should You Listen to Me?

  • I’ve been a full-stack Java developer for 22 years. And I still write code nearly every single day.
  • As a Java news reporter at InfoQ, I know what’s happening in the software development world.
  • As CTO of my own SaaS start-up, I’m constantly evaluating how to better build & run a Java back-end, a web front-end, and native mobile apps.
