- 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 […]
- Getting started with Angular CLI and Project Clarity
When working at an Angular project, there are many choices for a UI kit. You have Angular Material, ng-bootstrap and a few more. My favourite UI kit is probably Project Clarity, open sourced by VMWare.
- Using the Netflix stack with Spring boot: Zuul
You might have heard of the term cross-cutting concerns in the past. If not, cross-cutting concerns are concerns that apply to all layers of the application. Examples of these concerns are logging, monitoring, security, … . If you think about it, some cross-cutting concerns also apply to microservices. Perhaps you want to monitor how long […]
- Securing Spring boot applications with JWT
As soon as you write your first web application with Spring, you probably want to secure it. Spring has a project called Spring Security that does most of the generic stuff for you. Just plug in a service that provides the user details (from a database, LDAP, …) and configure the endpoints and you’re ready […]

- 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 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 […]
