GeekListener Hey there! It's time for #GeekListener v.3. The last week was poor to good tweets. It's very strange because so many events occurred. Devoxx Belgium and Morocco are finished, Spring Boot 1.3 released, TypeSafe Monitor 1.0 and many other thins.

GeekListener Hello everyone, java and scala developers, big data engineers, geeks and random readers who opened the #GeekListener digest. So what was interesting on the previous week? There are a banch of things: echoes of the JavaOne conference, java lambdas, education, scala stuff and a humour which you may expect from me.

scala-logo Working with a JSON is very common task in a software development process. In Scala you can do it in many ways, either with help of Java popular libraries such as Jackson or using Scala specific libraries. How to make a right choice from the Spray JSON, Play JSON, Argonaut, Jackson, Rapture and many more?

GeekListener This is the first blog post in a new category #GeekListener. Here, I’ll publish all tweets, which I’ve liked for the previous week. It makes even more sense, after Twitter has replaced “stars” with “hearts”. I'm following JVM tweets and software development tweets in general, so digest lays exactly in this space.

Java lambdas Finally I write to my blog. I'm so excited, because more then 6 months I haven't wrote here. I do not want to make excuses, since I worked on another projects and now I'm ready to present them. If you are belong to 10 000 of my regular readers you definitely know that my blog is an educational in general. And I'm really glad to announce my new direction of development - e-learning.
