Solutions for a filterable sortable pageable list in Spring

(GraphQL, REST, …) Hello again everybody, it’s Süxy here!  Today we are going to take a look at several custom implementations for the good old “filterable + sortable + pageable list” problem. In this post we are going to compare the oldschool REST solution with GraphQL and our custom solution (both at the source code level and performance), […]

FCrDNS (Forward-Confirmed Reverse DNS) on Firebase

TL;DR Around January 2018 I had been trying hard to make FCrDNS on Firebase work… However, after countless hours of hopeless development, I felt like something was wrong, so I asked for help on Stackoverflow. Doug Stevenson and Thomas Bouldin, two developers from the Google Development Team came to my rescue and kudos for their quick response! At that time they confirmed […]

Rancher and Grafana – A long case-study to learn some DevOps

Motivation Cryptotrading is so cool and profitable these days… So I decided to try it out. But if you want to do something well, you need a lot of information and tools.

Read part two for a discussion on creating a plane and letting our objects reflect and refract. Part three has been the most advanced, in here we built […]

Ray Tracing with Akka – Part 3

Where we left off In the last two posts, we reached the capabilities of a simple ray-tracer. We now have two types of shapes (sphere and plane), we can calculate shadows, reflections and refractions recursively. Before we move onto the more computation-heavy shapes, I am curious about how I could move our computations to separated nodes. So […]
