Java Memory Management
Understanding how Java organizes memory is important for every Java professional, but this particular topic is a common knowledge gap for many software professionals. Having in-depth knowledge of memory functioning and management is incredibly useful in writing and analyzing code, as well as debugging memory problems. In fact, it can be just the knowledge you need to level up your skills and career.
In this book, you'll start by working through the basics of Java memory. After that, you'll dive into the different segments individually. You'll explore the stack, the heap, and the Metaspace. Next, you'll be ready to delve into JVM standard garbage collectors. The book will also show you how to tune, monitor and profile JVM memory management. Later chapters will guide you on how to avoid and spot memory leaks.
By the end of this book, you'll have understood how Java manages memory and how to customize it for the benefit of your applications. ...
Modern Frontend Development with Node.js
Full Stack Quarkus and React
React has established itself as one of the most popular and widely adopted frameworks thanks to its simple yet scalable app development abilities.

Patterns for Beginning Programmers
Programming patterns are solutions to problems that require the creation of a small fragment of code that will be part of a larger program. Hence, this book is about teaching you how to write such fragments of code. However, it is not about teaching you the syntax of the statements in the fragments, it assumes that you already know the syntax. Instead, it is about finding solutions to problems that arise when first learning to program.
Patterns can be used to teach problem solving at various levels of abstraction (which are inversely related to the level of detail). Programming patterns are solutions to problems that require the creation of a small fragment of code that will be part of a larger program. Hence, this book is about teaching you how to write such fragments of code. However, it is not about teaching you the of the statements in the fragments, it assumes that you already know the syntax. Though the syntax of a particular programming language can be confusing at first, it ...
