Workshop: [SOLD OUT] Microservices w/ Spring Boot and Docker




8:00am - 12:00pm


Participants should be experienced with building modern server-side Java applications, e.g. Spring framework or Java EE. They should have Docker installed on their laptop. (a lot of the content is language independent however)

This workshop is sold out.

In this talk you will learn about a modern way of designing applications that’s very different from the traditional approach of building monolithic applications that persist mutable domain objects in a relational database.We will talk about the microservice architecture, it’s benefits and drawbacks and how Spring Boot can help. You will learn about implementing business logic an event-driven approach based on event sourcing and CQRS. We will talk about packaging and deploying microservices using Docker.

Key Takeaways:

  • Overview of microservices
  • Options for deploying microservices
  • Microservices communication mechanisms: service<=>service and client<=>application
  • Service discovery in a microservices architecture
  • Event-driven microservices
  • Spring Boot + Spring Cloud as a microservice chassis
  • Refactoring to microservices
