Spoke two times at Javaland 2020.

First talk with my colleague Ralf D. Müller, where we shared our experience with the arc42 software architecture documentation template in combination with Docs-As-Code and Microsites.

Second talk on the same day was a replacement talk. But I like that talk so much because I poured every inch of experience about Architecture Decision Records into it I gained over the last three years.

The slides can be found here:


On a side note: It was great to catch up with so many friends in person :)

I played around with gitpod.io and tried to setup a .gitpod.yml for our website fiveandahalfstars.ninja.

Turns out the integration with a github-Organization can only be done by the original creator of the organization. Thanks to Ralf it now works.

With help from the excellent docs I was able to configure the workspace to always repair the .gradlew (Windows somehow loses the execute right ;) ) and build the project at startup.

Finally the most awesome feature: Starting a local preview of the generated site inside gitpod to see the final result. What a feature! Love it!

If you want to see the full configuration then head over to our github-repository
