November 2022 Edition
Howdy from all the CodeRanch staff, and welcome to the November edition of the Journal.

No, not to a local pub for a glass of mulled wine, but to do some puzzle solving during Advent of Code -
And yes, like in previous years, we are planning to share our solutions at CodeRanch -

Eventually you'd see if we actually touched that mulled wine, when all of a sudden those elegant solutions would get thrown out and we'd go quick n' dirty.

A message from Jeanne:

We've been on Twitter for many years and now have an account on Mastodon:

To date, Twitter has been just the promos. We hope to do better and post more on Mastodon.

The Java community has been active in building community on Mastodon.
There's even a website listing Twitter/Mastodon/GitHub handles -
You can import the csv to Mastodon to jump start Java community.

Fore more details:

We are emerging into the time of the year when various thoughts kick in.
I feel it is the right time to go back in time and learn, how we ended up here!

You know that CodeRanch is running on a heavily modified JForum software version for over a decade now, right...

But do you know how all this started?

Won't say anything else, have a fun read! Some of the threads / pages you may want to start with:

  • A better way to design TicTacToe
  • And like in all software design related topics, our moderator Junilu Lacar "A better way..." assimilates with a "Test driven way...".

  • This might be the first time we see a Hat-Check Problem at CodeRanch
  • Those that are familiar with numbers are all in!

  • Another rare, but very interesting discussion about the Code coverage
  • Wondering how code coverage can be observed? If you never come across, check SonarCloud. The tool I personally love a lot!

    Liutauras Vilda - a sheriff, who's wandering around here for almost 10 years now, well, not yet, in the next 2 years or so. But it doesn't hurt to give you a hint what's coming.
