- Working with Spring boot and GraphQL
When creating applications, REST is an often used technology to transfer data through APIs. While REST is commonly adopted, there are some issues with it. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how GraphQL compares to REST and how to use GraphQL with Spring boot.
- Handling authentication and authorization with Angular
When writing an application, eventually you may have to secure it. In this article I’ll go over the various things you can do with Angular to handle the authentication of your application.
- Working with @ngrx/store
One of the major differences between AngularJS 1.x and Angular 2 and beyond is the shift to components. Even though components were introduced in AngularJS 1.5, controllers are still often used. Embracing components provides many advantages, such as proper loosely coupled components, re-usability and so on. One drawback to the component-based approach is state management […]
- Writing your own Spring boot starter
If you worked with Spring boot before, you know it, there are various starters out there. These starters automatically configure all kind of things so that you no longer have to. This allows you to get started more quickly, and not to be bothered about configuration that is usually a copy-paste from something else. The […]
- Monitoring Spring boot applications with Prometheus and Grafana
Monitoring is an essential aspect to the maintainability of applications, it’s no surprise that there are many platforms out there that allow you to properly monitor your applications. Usually, monitoring platforms work by using a time series database, which is a database optimised for time-based information, such as application metrics. Then on the other hand […]

- Rapid prototyping with Spring Boot and AngularJS
Recently I wrote an article about writing modern webapps with Spring Data REST and AngularJS. It’s not that hard to write, but it can be done even easier with Spring Boot as pointed out in the comments by Greg Turnquist. I already planned on trying out Spring Boot after some amazing articles about Spring Boot […]
- Using WebSockets with Spring, AngularJS and SockJS
A while ago I wrote a tutorial about writing a web application using Spring, AngularJS and WebSockets. However, that tutorial only used a fraction of what WebSockets could do, so in this tutorial I will explain how you can write a small chat app using the same frameworks; Spring, AngularJS, Stomp.js and SockJS.
- Writing real time applications using Spring and AngularJS (Part 3: AngularJS)
In the previous two tutorials I made the entire back-end for the real time application. You probably have noticed that the configuration part actually took longer than actually writing the application itself, this is because there’s a lot of magic behind the screens (think about the data access layer we didn’t have to write). This […]
- 2017: Year in review
While 2017 was mostly an inactive year for me, that doesn’t mean that we didn’t have any visitors! So let’s review what happened last year. Visitors The amount of visitors is similar to last year. While we gained a bit more visitors, we got less pageviews overall, but that makes sense, since we didn’t really […]

- CloudFlare, good or bad?
If you’re a developer like me and you spent some of your time on Reddit or StackOverflow, you probably might have encountered some articles about CloudFlare last week, like CloudFlare is ruining the internet (for me) and CloudFlare is ruining Stack Overflow for me with its recaptcha. Reading these articles made me want to evaluate […]
