[12:30:24] <AlexLehm> temporalfox: the netty snapshot will be build at 2 pm, then the project using 4.1.4-snapshot should work correctly on jenkins

[12:31:34] <temporalfox> ok

[12:31:42] <temporalfox> need to see if we want to use a netty snapshot or not tho

[12:32:10] <AlexLehm> for the normal version, i would prefer the relase version

[12:32:23] <AlexLehm> this project uses the snapshot https://vertx.ci.cloudbees.com/job/alexlehm-vert.x3-core-wip/

[12:32:38] <AlexLehm> from the dns netty branch

[21:16:05] <_orangejuice> Hi Folks! Is Vert.x too low level for a total beginner? Stuff looks great and maps well to my brain.

[21:23:23] <Sticky_> its not low level at all

[21:24:24] <Sticky_> in fact its a very high abstraction over things like networking, multithreading, disk access

[21:36:01] <_orangejuice> @Sticky_ Thanks! Any pointers to beginner friendly docs to read to build web backends?

[21:37:01] <AlexLehm> _orangejuice: there are a few blog posts by Clement about starting with vertx web i think

[21:37:08] <Sticky_> and https://github.com/vert-x3/vertx-examples

[21:41:08] <_orangejuice> Thanks AlexLehm and Sticky_ . Going with JS ok? First class citizen since I have some JS experience.

[21:41:47] <Sticky_> not tried JS on vertx myself

[21:42:03] <AlexLehm> vertx is implemented in java, but you can access all the apis in javascrpt as well

[21:42:17] <AlexLehm> i have done some small things with js in vertx

[21:42:38] <AlexLehm> should be ok, especially when you know it already

[21:43:09] <Sticky_> having messed a bit with some other languages and vertx, my biggest issue by far was getting a decent build chain

[21:43:48] <Sticky_> but may just have been trying to do mixed language projects

[22:03:05] <_orangejuice> Look forward to it. Thanks :)
