Three Short Links is a daily look at interesting articles or projects that wander into my view. You’ll see a lot of code and musings on cloud and distributed architectures, cool new gadgets, and occasionally some more random topics including math, science, or, if you’re lucky, baseball.
- Java REPL: A read-evaluate-print-loop console for Java. Seems surprisingly useful for trying out things quickly, especially since you can define classes.
