De-Bootstrapping my Blog - Part 1
I am writing a series of posts about the development of a new blog theme. In this first post, I talk about the history of web design (in my experience) and the new best thing in town: CSS Grid.
Polymorphic Class Serialization in Spring and MongoDB
I was recently faced with the perplexing problem of making Spring and MongoDB serialize/deserialize a polymorphic class. Initially, it seemed like a simple task, but it proved to be more complicated than anticipated. Allow me to share my solution.
Exploring the Small Web

A simple Event System in TypeScript
Events are an intuitive way to model the execution flows of applications when several modules, each one with complex lifecycles, need to synchronize with each other.
