I have some exciting news to share. I recently embarked on a new project, and I’m currently working on my upcoming book, “Java Logging with Log4j” (title temporary).
As a contributor to the Apache Logging Services Project, I’ve noticed that many young developers often struggle with getting started in Java logging. At the same time, I’ve seen senior developers having a hard time explaining the same concepts over and over again. This observation inspired me to create a resource that would help bring our community together and make Java logging more accessible for everyone.
“Java Logging” is being specifically designed for beginners, with the aim of providing clear explanations and practical examples to help them quickly understand and implement logging in their Java applications. The book won’t be limited to just Log4j – it will cover logging in general and mention other widely-used frameworks as well.
I’m thrilled to announce that Manning Publications will be publishing my book. They’ve been incredibly supportive since the beginning of this project, and I couldn’t have asked for a better publisher. Their commitment to creating high-quality technical content is truly inspiring and I am learning a lot, even when this project just got started.
This book is a reflection of the amazing community we are all a part of, and I hope it will help new developers feel more comfortable and confident when working with Java logging. I’m looking forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on our community and the new connections it will help create.
I’ll keep you updated on the progress of the book here, but also on Mastodon.
