Artima Weblogs is a community of bloggers posting on a wide range of topics of interest to software developers.



 



Moving This Blog to Github Pages
After a lot of (occasional) research and experimentation, I've finally found a new home for this blog, using Jekyll to create a static site served by Github pages.



Markdown vs. AsciiDoc
Markdown has a lot of users and tools, but it was pointed out that it's limited and has been forked, while AsciiDoc has an extensible architecture.



Scala Summit in Crested Butte, CO, September 15-19 2014
Come create conversation, generate ideas, hack projects, hike, fish and mountain bike at the second annual Scala Summit! This year we hope to see the leaves change and you'll experience the glorious autumn weather at 9,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains.



Ghost
A friend asked if I'd tried Ghost. I know of it, but it's confusing about what it can do.



Update: Search for New Programming Blog Platform
I've continued my background task of finding a new home for programming articles. I'm not there yet, but I've made some progress.



Apple's New Swift Language
This is also a trial post on Codrspace, to see how that works as a programming blog platform



Videos of Recent Presentations
On April 24, I spoke at the Craft conference in Budapest. On May 7, I spoke at the SF Scala user group. Here are links to the videos, along with my Reinventing Business presentation from last Summer's OSCON.



Atomic Scala eBook & Downloadable Hands-On Java eSeminar
I've been doing a lot of media production in recent months and the efforts have borne fruit: I've created my first full-fledged eBook (after lots of research) and I've reworked the Hands-On Java eSeminar so it's now a download instead of mailing a CD.



The Scala Summit in Crested Butte, August 19-21
This is the first iteration of an event we hope to evolve into something like The Java Posse Roundup, but with hiking and mountain biking instead of snow activities. We already have an impressive list of name-brand attendees.



Windows 8 is ... Not So Bad
After a lot of trepidation because of bad press, I've rapidly come to prefer Windows 8 over Windows 7. Because an equivalent-horsepower Mac is 3 times the cost of a Windows 8 machine, I'm moving back to Windows.



"Atomic Scala" Print Book Now Available
After two years of cogitation on Scala, the print version of the book is ready! (The Kindle version might take another month or two...).



Gentle Introduction to Scala: The Seminar
For the last year and a half, Dianne Marsh and I have been working on an introductory Scala book.



Summer Workshops: Gentle Intro to Scala & Get Your Groove Back
The earlier workshop came about because of a last-minute opportunity, thus the short notice. Both follow the open style that I've been developing in recent years.



Beautiful Soup 4 Now in Beta
If you do any HTML/XML processing, you've probably heard of this powerful and useful package. Download the latest beta and run it on your code to help debug it and make sure it does what you need!



Is Scala Only for Computer Scientists?
I'm not talking about the early adopters writing obscure code here -- that can probably be solved with a suitable style guide. I just debugged my way through an example that should have been trivial but I only figured out because:
