Funny story on debugging code

About 10 years ago I was asked to debug a process in a large Java application that bombed-out often with the famous and stress-inducing java.lang.NullPointerException. The first I usually do when hunting errors in unfamiliar code are to identify the ...Show more

On: That time I fell in love with a Gopher ❤️

As a startup, Haaartland needs to move fast and produce great API and backend services that scale. Back in 2015 when we founded the company, we had pretty unclear requirements and we knew that we would need to refactor our code many times to find our...Show more
