Hi everyone,

I wanted to send this on Sunday. It’s still Sunday (where I’m at), so here it goes. Less than what I aimed for but the important parts are there: A thorough (I hope) discussion of long-term support and an invitation to come to Accento (now online and free).


Hi everyone,

I occasionally get asked about my setup for coding, gaming, recording, streaming, or writing and since it’s all the same hardware, I thought I’d kill 🦤🦤🦤🦤🦤 with one stone and let you know everything about it. In a similar vein, a few people have been curious about my…


Hi everyone,

I’ve grown accustomed to sending this out on the month’s last Sunday and so you might’ve expected this newsletter eight days ago. But somehow I didn’t manage my time well and so it’s today — better late than never, I guess.

After talking to the leads of Projects…


Hi everyone,

this newsletter arrives at an unusual time. I’ve recently been gunning for each month’s last Sunday but realized yesterday that that’s not gonna work this time because I’ve got something quite time consuming planned for the coming weekend: A 26-hour live stream for Java’s 26th birthday!


Hi everyone,

here’s the thing: I already put all my Java stuff out there and have nothing left to share in this newsletter. :-S As I get better at using the various channels at my disposal to share what I learned quicker, this may become more common. Then again, I’m…


Hi everyone,

how are you all doing? I hope these trying times are kind to you. Depending on where you live, you may slowly see the light at the end of the tunnel, right? Over here in Germany, vaccinations aren’t exactly going great (I’d be surprised to get the first…


Hi everyone,

I hope you’re comfortable because this is a long one! I didn’t plan it this way, there’s just a lot of things I want to share with you — from a detail on Java’s (sub)packages to a discussion of its anachronistic defaults (mutability, nullability, etc.) and serialization to…


Hi everyone,

finally the newsletter is back to coding, so no yapping — I’ll get right to it.

I send this newsletter out some Sundays. Or other days. Sometimes not for weeks. But as an actual email. So, subscribe!

Happy new year everyone,

everybody ready to take on 2020, part 2? Sorry, I mean 2021, of course. Although the first few months will surely feel a lot more like 2020 than the years before that. (I wrote this intro on December 31st — call it premonition.) Shit, why am…


Hi everyone,

this has been a fucked up year. Somehow it seems each recent year managed to be a bit worse than the one before it. Remember Australia being on fire? That was just 12 months ago!

But while 2020 has been challenging for everybody, the real-life impact varied widely…
