I spent a lot of time thinking about when Java-based configuration may come in handy. Annotations are comfortable – you annotate a class, and that is all. You do not have to remember about writing an additional method in some strange configuration class.
When ten years ago someone asked me “what do you want to do when you grow up?” I answered, “I wanna be an IT guy”. Then the person asked another question: “do you know that you will have to learn and understand Math?”. I answered yes and kept this in my mind for the next ten years.
If you are following my blog then it is obvious for you that I’m programmer. Not all of you know that I’m also an amateur runner. I have been running for almost 5 years of which 3 years of racing (except 2016). I have run a lot of 10km races, several half-marathons, and a few marathons. In this posts, I’m going to show you where I have found a connection between running and programming, and how they affect each other.
