LJC Talk: Learning by Coding: Better Java Projects Faster With Jhipster

Illustration for Learning by Coding: Better Java Projects Faster With Jhipster


The London Java Community (LJC) regularly hosts online talks by Java experts. On August 25, 2020, I discussed how JHipster gets you Java projects faster if you can learn from running code. My talk included two live demos.


My talk is on YouTube in the LJC channel:

Slides & Code

Grab the PDF slides here.

If you’re on an Apple device and have Apple’s “Keynote” presentation program installed, then you can also get the slides in their original format. Why would you do that? These slides are animated, so they are more pleasant to watch. Or maybe you want to peek under the hood to see how I did certain effects. Either way, follow this link to download these slides. You can view them with Apple’s “Keynote” program.

I prepared a data model for the live demo. You can find it here as a text file.

Getting Started

If you want to get started with JHipster, then my three-part tutorial on JHipster is just what you need:

  • The first part is optional. It tells the story how JHipster and Docker saved my first Angular Java project.
  • The second part helps installing JHipster. We then generate our first JHipster application and explore the UI for administration and our entities.
  • In the third and final part, we look at the JHipster code. We configure Eclipse/Intellij, import the project, and then inspect the code.

Mailing List

Starting at the end of September, I’ll focus this site on which technologies & tools to use for building a Java application today. This will include links to tutorials. And I’ll give you my pick for building native mobile apps. So sign up for my newsletter with the link below to stay tuned!
