Not long ago, I wrote a post showing off the new Java development hub and one detailing the return of Brian Goetz as a contributor. This time, I’m going to show off the new Web development hub, detail Brian’s continued presence as well as that of another of my long-time favorites, David Geary.

First, we’ve just wrapped up the Java Streams series with two final installments (Parts 4 and 5) focused on parallel stream performance. “From concurrent to parallel” identifies and explains factors that determine the effectiveness of parallel processing; while “Parallel stream performance” applies those concepts. I do hope this isn’t Brian’s last appearance for the year, but he’s a busy man, and JavaOne is right around the corner.

Next up is the new Web development hub. Design-wise its the same as Java with the hub split into Learn, Develop, and Connect pages, each with context-appropriate content. My coverage mandate is broad, and at least for the time being, heavily focused on the JavaScript ecosystem. Apropos of that statement, David Geary recently started a new series for me. If you’re not familiar with David, his web development chops have been finely honed over many years as a sought-after engineer, project committer, speaker, and writer. He’s written for developerWorks on topics such as JSF2 and HTML5 2D game development, always to great success. As luck would have it, his current area of interest is JavaScript and he had availability to write!

His new series is on Redux, a predictable state container for JavaScript apps that makes maintaining state significantly less error prone. Last week I published the first two (of five) installments in the series:

Introducing Redux

Using Redux with React

David is a master at distilling tough concepts into digestible, easy-to-follow components to maximize learning, so if you’re new to Redux, you can be sure that you’ll be a competent user once you finish the series. I expect to publish the remaining parts by the end of the summer.

Another upcoming JavaScript-related series (on LoopBack) by another developerWorks veteran contributor (Ted Neward) is in the works now, so look for that to start in a month or so. If you follow me on Twitter (@scithusiast), you’ll be the first to know when something new hits the glass. Until then…
