    Provides Familiar Spring Abstractions for Apache Kafka

    Yes. Several parts to it.

    1) My experience is greater. Many of the problems that I encountered before, I know how to solve.

    2) I know what knowledge I'm looking for if I don't know the answer. Instead of searching for the problem I am having (and ending up on SO), I am searching for the specific part of the documentation that I need for solving the problem that I have.

    3) I tend to bias to project specific knowledge now. The general pollution of search on Stack Overflow means that it is more productive to search Spring documentation or the project specific forums ( ) rather than Stack Overflow itself.

    4) Stack Overflow content is having difficulty with the lack of curation of old answers and the deceased quality of people answering now. Finding an answer written in recent times with a few variations on "have you tried {x}?" without the material leading to how that suggestion was derived means that trying to apply the answer is shotgun "maybe this works" without an understanding for how it works or if that is the right solution.

    4b) I try to avoid the "have you tried {x}" answers as that impacts the rate I grow my experience (and thus part 1) at. Likewise, in general, people who try the shotgun solutions (and I can see that in code reviews if they're not good about cleaning up (and they aren't) tend to continue to make the same type of errors again as they are following cookbook / paint by numbers approaches rather than understanding some basic food science or aesthetic theory.

  • Rustler

    Safe Rust bridge for creating Erlang NIF functions

    They work really well together. Check out Rustler.[1]


  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • solid-site

    Code that powers the platform.

    The next gen frameworks like Svelte or SolidJS are much easier to use, still more powerful and way faster. I have no clue why people keep using the old ones. The argument that the old ones have larger ecosystems is true but not appropriate as integration of pure JS libs is very easy with both Svelte and SolidJS.

    I especially recommend people looking into SolidJS:
