Nullables Livestream #9: Database Dreams
February 3, 2023
In this weekly livestream series, I pair up with Ted M. Young, aka jitterted, to look at Nullables and A-Frame Architecture as an alternative to Mocks, Spies, and Hexagonal Architecture. Each episode combines a healthy dose of architecture and design discussion with hands-on coding.
Watch us live every Monday! For details, see the event page. For more episode recordings, see the episode archive.
Learn how to apply these ideas to your own code! I’m offering live online training for this material on April 11th and 12th. Register here.

Databases! With our initial implementation of nullables complete, it’s time to add persistence. We start by reviewing Ted’s Spring Data JPA spike, then begin creating a
GameDatabase infrastructure wrapper from scratch. The goal is to write low-level tests that give us total control over how the wrapper works. Most of our time is spent fighting with Spring Data, but by the end, we’ve got it figured out.
