How did we get to March already? Where is 2019 going?? This month’s Java Annotated Monthly has a nice wide range of Java news, tutorials and tips, along with a bunch of articles on related (and not-so-related) technologies. And since today is International Women’s Day, you’ll find there’s a #IWDay2019 theme.
Guess what? Java’s dead again! Oh wait, no it’s not. And Oracle and Google are still fighting? What year is it?
Java Tutorials & Tips
This month we have a mix of really deep dive stuff, stuff-you-just-need-to-learn-for-interviews, interesting things you may not have known that might help you, and some solid how-tos.
Languages, Frameworks, Libraries and Technologies
Today’s developers aren’t just an expert in one language. We need to be familiar with a wide range of tools to do our day job, and we need to be aware of infinitely more.
Culture & Community
It’s International Women’s Day today. Regular readers should know that I do make a conscious effort every month to search out and feature women’s voices and the voices of other under-represented groups, and also to actively challenge stereotypes perpetuated in many articles (e.g. I take a very dim view of authors who assume that a developer is a “he”). This month I have looked beyond “traditional” sources to include a wider range of topics and voices. I learnt something new from every one of these articles.
- Also related, I dug up an old series of interviews with awesome women in Java: Coleen Phillimore, Angelika Langer, Agnes Crepet, Fabiane Bizinella Nardon
- The one who writes articles as she learns – this article looks at how learning and writing can help you develop your career
- ‘I felt so alone’: What women at Microsoft face, and why many leave – a case study, but of course Microsoft is far from the only company that experiences these issues.
- Five innovations that have advanced women’s rights – some of them will surprise you
- 25 places where women are in charge – “surprisingly” Silicon Valley is not in this list…
- 15 unsung women in tech you should know about – some of these people you will be familiar with, but there are many women behind the technologies we use that we have never heard of
- The mentors and the role they play in Silicon Valley – not all the big names are men
So today I found about the super dope scientist that was Mileva Marić (Einstein’s first wife). Let her name be remembered because sis went through the most to just to study physics .
She was one of the first women to sit in an all male physics lecture🙆 #InternationalWomensDay pic.twitter.com/bYgcZkHqOE

Here’s a chance to catch up on the IntelliJ IDEA and other JetBrains news that you might have missed:
There is no better day for us to let you know the results of #IJ18Bday. The love goes to Refactoring, Code completion, Search Everywhere, VCS support, and Spring integration. Thanks for taking part! #happyvalentines
