Pre-conference J-Fall 2017

On Wednesday, November 1th 2017 (the day before J-Fall 2017) the NLJUG organizes an expert level pre-conference. We will provide you with 2 expert level workshops of 4 hours from top level speakers Arun Gupta, Brian Hammons and Bert Ertman.
Visit this pre-conference of J-Fall to really go in-depth and learn all about the newest Java technology. Participants of the pre-conference are welcome to join the J-Fall speakers dinner afterwards. It’s even possible to book a hotel room, so you can sleep at the workshop and speakers diner location and will be first at the J-Fall 2017 a day later. THERE ARE NO MORE HOTEL ROOMS AVAILABLE

A ticket for the pre-conference including speakers dinner is 95 euro. If you want to sleep in the Van der Valk Hotel in Veenendaal as well, the ticket price is 195 euro.

  • Serverless Deep Dive
    Bert Ertman

    Are you still using Docker in production? Get over it! Serverless is the NEW future of the Cloud. But since the Cloud is still someone else’s computer, that needs to be managed too. And if it is sitting idle, you probably have to pay for it whether you like it or not. No server can be more easily managed than no server. Therefore: meet Serverless, a new paradigm that truly approaches the Pay-as-You-Go philosophy once promised by the Cloud. This session explores Serverless, its impact on existing architectures, and assesses it’s usability for Mobile Back-ends as a Service (MBaaS), Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) and also for Microservices based architectures hosted in the cloud. Live coding and demos will be based on Amazon Web Services and Apache OpenWhisk offerings. There is no set limit to the amount of people that can join this workshop, it’s set up as a deep dive session and no laptop is needed for the visitors.

  • Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services
    Arun Gupta & Brian Hammons

    Kubernetes is a popular cloud-native open-source orchestration platform for container management, scaling and automated deployment. It includes a rich set of features such as service discovery, multi-tenancy, stateful containers, resource usage monitoring, and rolling updates. Some of the questions we will go over are: How do we deploy using infrastructure technologies like CloudFormation and Terraform? How can CLI clients such as kops, kubeadm, juju-charms and minikube be used to interact with Kubernetes? What does a clean CI/CD pipeline look like using AWS? How do we integrate with tools such as Maven? In this code-driven workshop you will learn how to package, deploy, scale, and monitor your Java application using Kubernetes and the AWS cloud.
