It all started in 2011 when I and Jörg (one of my co-authors) had the opportunity to design two new Java courses at University. In addition to teaching Java and Concurrency on the JVM, we wanted to teach clean code practices through code reviews of the students homeworks, interactive code reviews in class, and code reviews as part of the oral exam. Over the course of six years, we've seen and marked hundreds of thousand lines of Java code by beginners. And we started to see patterns, a lot of them. That's the main source of knowledge for "Java by Comparison".

With the second co-author, Linus, joining our group at University in 2016, we started to collect those anti-patterns, explain why they are problematic, provide a solution, and explan why the solution is better. That's how the two-page layout of "Java by Comparison" is born.

We hope you like it, and that it'll help you become a better programmer! :-)(less)

Yes, but the difference is the headline, meaning that first, you only show the code, second, you give the audience their task, and third, you offer the name you came up with for the comparison.

The name itself isn’t improved on the slides itself, but when playing that game with an audience, everybody tries to find a good name, and you listen to the suggestions by all the other developers, discussin
