What is a High Performing Team within Agile

High Performance

Do you enjoy your work culture?

Who doesn’t want to show up to work and be in an environment with like minded and talented team members (ability, passion, desire not skill-set).

Do you enjoy your work environment?

Who doesn’t want to be part of a team that is recognised for the quality that they deliver as well as being seen as industry leaders, has the abilities to use technologies that will give the best outcome and help grow your teams skill-set and interest.

Do you want to easily be employable?

Who doesn’t want to be perceived in the communities they are part of as someone others would love to work with.

Since RESTful implements JAX-RS with the communication protocol being HTTP, it has allowed for rapid development with the ability to send data in different formats, typically it is JSON however it can also be send as XML or even plain text.

Both technologies do have their advantages and disadvantages however my preference of choice for many reasons is RESTful.

Angular JS and Bootstrap with Spring, Spring Security and Hibernate

Angular

Folks have been asking me if I knew of any good examples of a J2EE web application that utilizes the following technologies: Angular JS, Bootstrap, Spring 4, Spring Security 4 and Hibernate 5.2.4, and after searching around
