Cloud-Native made easy with Open Source Java

Mini-Lab @ Coding Cafe
Java

Come experience first-hand how you can build cloud-native solutions quickly and efficiently with the open, enterprise-grade, cloud-native Java programming APIs optimized for microservices and cloud in MicroProfile and Jakarta EE. We will cover a range of topics in a hands-on manner: Easily develop RESTful and reactive services; automating true-to-production testing using containers; and application considerations for cloud deployments with containers.
