Welcome to the seventh issue of Zero to Hero Weekly.
The good part: I learned a heck lot of Spring Cloud and Spring Security internals, more than I’d like to know, actually. My verdict is: Although Java has moved a long way since J2EE, and with the Spring Framework, it’s on the right path; yet I still do think it is heavy and verbose.
The Spring Framework is still worth learning if you want to shoot flies using rocket launchers 😜—kidding, or maybe not. Anyhoo try it yourself and tell me how your learning experience went.
What’s New on Zero to Hero 👩🍳
This week, I mainly did infrastructure and plumbing work, such as creating container images and ensuring that FizzBuzz Pro microservices are at least answering to health and liveness endpoints.
I don’t have a definite schedule. Yet, since I work during the day, I’ll mostly be stream at nights (pacific time)—stay tuned.
I stream every couple of days; however, it also depends on my energy levels, and the programs that I might have with family and friends.
The best way to get notified as soon as I’m online is to hop on the channel and follow me on Twitch.
Other than the live streams, there’s not much visible progress, but many cool things are brewing behind-the-scenes—stay tuned.
