Hello and welcome to the weekend reading list edition #100.
This is the 100th edition of the weekend reading list. It all started in 2020 during a coffee (not from Dunkin’) with Don Raab. After over 500 articles and videos featured in the blog and tens of thousands of views, I have to thank everyone that contributes to the blog by reading it, sending suggestions, or publishing quality content. Thank you!!!
To celebrate the 100 weekly articles, today’s edition will only suggest content that I have created as blogs, interviews with Java Champions, or talks at conferences and JUG’s.

Interview with a Java Champion
I have the pleasure of interviewing two Java Champions for the blog. Career, coffee, nomination, and of course, Java were some of the topics discussed.
