Java Annotated Monthly – February 2020

Holy guacamole there’s a lot in February’s Java Annotated Monthly! And it’s not only because it’s almost two weeks late! It’s also because apparently I was either bored or stuck somewhere with just my phone and read a lot of stuff.  Anyway now you have pages of things to read this Valentine’s Day.

IntelliJ IDEA News

There’s a surprising amount of IntelliJ IDEA / IDE specific news this month, so it gets its own section.

  • Free Tools and Editors devroom, FOSDEM – I helped to host this room together with Lars Vogel from Eclipse and Geertjan Wielenga from NetBeans. Videos from most of the sessions are available from this link
  • IntelliJ for Test Automation Engineers – well structured, step by step course. In fact the first 5 chapters aren’t specific to test automation engineers but are basically “getting started with IntelliJ IDEA”, and could be shared with junior engineers or seniors new to IntelliJ IDEA.
  • IntelliJ IDEA | Full Course – I haven’t had a chance to check out the full course, I’d love to hear what you think of it.
  • IntelliJ Live Templates – I’m always asked about Live Templates. In this blog post somone walks through creating one
  • IntelliJ IDEA best plugins – according to one developer. I happen to agree with some of these, and intend to try a couple more

Java News

Java Tutorials & Tips

Languages, Frameworks, Libraries and Technologies

Culture & Community

I read a LOT in January, apparently! I also read a lot of different things so this is even more than usual a dumping ground of “stuff I found interesting and potentially useful to engineers, developers, and other human beings”.

And Finally

A chance to catch up on the other IntelliJ IDEA and JetBrains blog posts from this month.

Also: we are hiring!! I’m looking for a Java/JVM Developer Advocate to join my team.

If you have any interesting or useful Java / JVM news to share via Java Annotated Monthly, leave a comment or drop me a message via Twitter.
