Workshop: "Cloud Native Java Workshop"

Track: Workshops / Time: Monday 09:00 - 16:00 / Location: Mendes da Costa Kamer

In this workshop we'll look at how to build cloud-native Java applications. A cloud native application is one that is designed to fully exploit a cloud platform both in the application layer - where things decompose into microservices - and at the data layer where NoSQL offers better horizontal scaling and fitness for specific purpose.

We'll look at:

  • writing services and handling non-functional requirements like metrics and logging with Spring Boot
  • scaling out safely and building fault-tolerant systems using Spring Cloud and its support for distributed systems patterns like the circuit breaker, service registration and discovery, and centralized configuration management.
  • offloading as much operational work as possible to the platform, Cloud Foundry

Workshop seats are limited.
