I suppose you all know who Ceki Gulku is, but you may not have seen him explaining some aspects about some of his creations. I quite liked this talk, even if it’s five years old… after all, it’s not like logging frameworks have evolved too much anyway since then.
Log4j 2.0 seems to be gaining followers even if it’s still a beta… but for me, SLF4J with Logback still makes the trick, and this guy was massively involved on both projects.
If you feel like the topic deserves an hour of your time, don’t think it twice. Enjoy.
