Hands-on with Quarkus: Building next-generation Kubernetes native Java apps

Hands-on Lab
Java

Java was originally built for a world where long-running, memory-hungry dynamic applications were all that we knew. However, we now live in a world dominated by the cloud, mobile, IoT, and open source, where containers, Kubernetes, microservices, reactive, Function-as-a-Service (FaaS), 12-factor, and cloud-native application development can deliver higher levels of productivity and efficiency. Quarkus provides an effective solution for developing with Java in this new world and offers an extensible set of Java libraries and frameworks that you know and love, combined with blazingly fast startup times, extremely low memory usage and pure developer joy.

Come to this workshop to get hands-on developing successful Kubernetes Native applications using Quarkus, a Java ecosystem way to develop cloud-first, container-native, serverless focused and Kubernetes optimized apps. Topics include:

  • Fast development with Live Coding
  • Building Native Java
  • Deploying to Kubernetes
  • Event-Driven/Reactive Apps
  • Dependency Injection
  • Testing Quarkus Apps
  • Streaming with Kafka
  • Security with JWT and Keycloak
  • Data access with Hibernate and Panache
  • Metrics, Monitoring and Tracing
  • Eclipse MicroProfile integration
