Architecting Scalable APIs with Spring Boot and Open Source Distributed Databases

Dive into this dynamic, hands-on workshop, where participants will learn the art of designing and developing scalable RESTful APIs using Spring Boot integrated with an open-source distributed database.

The workshop will focus on understanding the core principles of RESTful APIs and Spring Boot's efficiency in developing these APIs. Furthermore, we'll delve into how an open-source distributed database's scalability can provide robust data persistence, allowing the API to scale effortlessly with growing demands. The session will conclude with a hands-on activity, during which participants will apply the concepts they've learned. They will design, develop, and scale their own RESTful API using Spring Boot and an open-source distributed database.

Upon completion, participants will have gained a comprehensive understanding of developing scalable, robust APIs with Spring Boot and open-source distributed databases, enabling them to effectively apply these strategies in their projects.
