I’ve been writing code for a while now and I have reused lots of bits here and there between projects, but never really properly organised any of it in one place.

As I’m going through Joshua Bloch’s amazing book Effective Java (which I would warmly recommend to any Java developer at any level, links below), I realised again how much I could benefit from setting this up and from developing a “toolkit” that I can reuse for many projects to come. So out of that, Shardplate is born, at the moment more an idea than a project, but growing slowly.

As you can tell from the github page, I will keep this open-source as I work on it so if you want to contribute or use any parts of it, go right ahead. Just got this started the other day, but got quite a bunch more things that I would like to put in it over the next few weeks.
