3 Ways to Learn Spring Core, Spring MVC, Spring Security, and Spring Boot Framework

If you are a Java developer and wants to learn Spring framework then you have come to the right place. In this article, I will share three ways to learn Spring framework, but before that let's understand what is a spring framework and why Java developers should learn Spring framework? Well, Spring is a framework which assists you to develop Java application by following some best practices, particularly the principle of dependency injection and inversion of control. As per this principle, instead of class asking for its dependency, the framework provides them at runtime.  Following these principles improves your code quality because it reduces coupling between different part of your applications e.g. between modules and classes, which makes them easier to test and develop.

Top 5 Free Agile Courses for Programmers and Software Engineers - Best of Lot

Technology is changing at a rapid pace and market conditions, tough competition, and time-to-market are some of the biggest concerns for today's organizations, especially for technology companies. In order to adapt this fast-changing environment, most of the companies are now using the Agile model of development, testing, and project management. This enables the organizations to efficiently cope with changes and deliver faster and that's why for a programmer or an IT professional, a solid knowledge of Agile methodologies and framework is important. It doesn't matter whether you know the Waterfall model of development or not but it does matter whether you have worked in an Agile environment or not. In order to educate programmers about Agile, I have shared some of the books to learn Agile in past and today I am going to share some of the free online Agile courses you can take to learn Agile methodologies at your own pace.

How to Sort a HashMap by Values in Ascending and Descending Order in Java 8 - Example Tutorial

In the last article, I have shown you how to sort a Map in Java 8 by keys and today, I'll teach you how to sort a Map by values using Java 8 features e.g. lambda expression, method reference, streams, and new methods added into the java.util.Comparator and Map.Entry classes. In order to sort any Map e.g. HashMap, Hashtable, LinkedHashMap, TreemMap, or even ConcurrentHashMap, you can first get set of entries by using the entrySet() method and then you can get the stream by calling the stream() method. The entrySet()  method returns a Set which inherit the stream() method from the java.util.Collection class. Once you got the stream, you can just call the sorted() method which can sort all Map.Entry objects available in Stream using a Comparator.

Top 5 Programming Languages Every Programmer Should Learn

I have read somewhere that programmer should learn a new programming language every year ( I think it's code complete, not sure, though), but if you cannot do so, I suggest to at least learn following five programming language to do well in your career. Everybody loves polyglot programmer and an all-rounder who is versatile enough to write a quick script and can also write complex Java programs. In fact, it's almost mandatory for a senior developer to learn more than one language. Interviewers are giving more attention to an engineer who has good experience with multiple languages e.g. C++ and Java goes quite well, so is Python and Java. I personally like Software Engineers who have strong experience in either C++ or Java and can write scripts in groovy, Perl or Python.
