Geek Reading September 14, 2015

We have a mix of stories today. In development, we have Mark Reinhold talking about the state of the module system, aka Project Jigsaw which will be in Java 9. Next, Daniel Lemire gives us an interesting take on who is typically responsible for progress, hackers or academics. On Mindful Chaos, they talk about how problem solving is not enough in a software engineer’s career, you have to be good at problem framing. It is an interesting perspective on some common beliefs.
