About this event

We are extremely excited to have world-renowned Spring Developer Advocate, Java Champion, author and open source contributor, Josh Long visit Melbourne. As part of his trip, we have an exclusive session where he will speak on Cloud Native, Part Deux. We promise you a great night of fun-filled coding and testing.

In this talk, join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) as he looks at Spring to support modern microservices development, focusing on the things that really matter (or, at least, the things Spring got cooking in Spring Boot 2.0 and Spring Cloud Finchley):

- Functions-as-a-service with Spring Cloud Function. We've got FUNCTIONS (wrapped in apps, in containers, running on servers, in datacenters)

- Functional reactive REST endpoints (totally different meaning for "function" here, though)

- Reactive programming with Spring Framework 5. Leverage flow control at every layer and make the most efficient use of every CPU when doing input/output. You're going to need every bit of efficiency that you can get after you've installed the patches for Spectre and Meltdown!

- Kotlin. Yes, KOTLIN: you wanted Java and I'm giving it to you.. in libraries that I'll use from Kotlin.

- Messaging with Apache Kafka. Nothing funny here. It's just awesome.

- Live on the edge with the new, reactive, rate-limiting, proxying, websocket-aware Spring Cloud Gateway

- ASCII art!
