About

Skylar was born as a Java command line application. She lived her wild teens as a JEE server but grow up to be a Docker micro service with Spring Boot and Apache Camel. With her caring character Skylar will whisper everything in your ear that you tend to forget. But be warned about her bitchy nature whenever you do not read her manual carefully. Just a well-intentioned advice from the guy with the tendency to forget what he wrote in the manual years ago… ;-)
