Microservices for the Enterprise
Just a week to go before we kick off our first ZeroTurnaround webinar in a new series of sessions aimed at educating developers and we already have almost 2000 developers registered! This first session discusses Microservices and the impact they could have on your enterprise. If you’re interested in attending, make sure you sign up to the webinar, even if you can’t make it live as we’ll send a follow up email with a link to the replay.
We’ll be taking questions live as well as in advance, so if you have something to ask or a comment to make, tweet us using the twitter hashtag #ZTLive. Here’s the abstract to the session in full:
We’ll begin our webinar with a high-level overview of the concepts of microservices, from the perfect storm of programmable infrastructure, new architectural concepts and DevOps, to key building blocks of a microservice architecture, like API design, service discovery and fault tolerance.
Next we’ll look for the perfect microservices framework. Instead of operating too much of what nobody needs, the ideal combination of relevant features with as little overhead as possible would be the “just right” fit. And this is where the recently released Lagom Framework puts it’s emphasis.
We can’t run a session on microservices without looking at the Spring offering. We’ll look at how to create modern microservices using the open-source Spring Boot and Spring Cloud technologies.
Our Amazing Speaker Lineup
Our speakers for the event are top class! First we’ll start the session off with Daniel Bryant, the Chief Scientist at OpenCredo. Daniel has spoken at many top conferences around the world and is a recognized leader in the space of Microservices. If you’d like to watch a presentation from Daniel on Microservices to get you in the mood, check out this session at the Docklands JUG in London, titled The Seven Deadly Sins of Microservices. Here’s his full bio:
Daniel Bryant is the Chief Scientist at OpenCredo. His current work includes enabling agility within organisations by introducing better requirement gathering and planning techniques, focusing on the relevance of architecture within agile development, and facilitating continuous integration/delivery. Daniel’s current technical expertise focuses on ‘DevOps’ tooling, cloud/container platforms and microservice implementations. He is also a leader within the London Java Community (LJC), contributes to several open source projects, writes for well-known technical websites such as InfoQ, DZone and Voxxed, and regularly presents at international conferences such as QCon, JavaOne and Devoxx.
If we had just Daniel giving us a session, it would be magical, but we have another rockstar, in Markus Eisele, joining us! Markus is a renowned speaker and is another recognised leader in Microservices, having also just joined LightBend (formerly Typesafe) as a Developer Advocate. Markus is also a keen blogger and here’s a taster of one of his posts, titled How to make “Just Right” easier with Microservices. Of course “Just Right” is Lagom in Swedish (you knew that, right?) which is also the name of LightBend’s new microservices framework. Here is Markus’ bio:
Markus Eisele is a Java Champion, former Java EE Expert Group member, Java community leader of German DOAG, founder of JavaLand, reputed speaker at Java conferences around the world, and a very well known figure in the Enterprise Java world. He works for Lightbend. You’ve probably known and seen him at different conferences and Java User Groups meetups, read his blogs, or are following his social media presence. While talking about middleware for many years you’ll continue to hear him talk about enterprise grade Java going forward. Focused on education about the latest trends in building enterprise systems in a reactive way with Java. He’s been looking into containers and microservices architectures more deeply and also wrote a book about modern Java EE Design Patterns with O’Reily. He is excited to educate more about how microservices architectures can integrate and complement existing platforms, and will also talk about how to successfully build resilient applications with Java.
So wow, we have two amazing speakers! But wait, there’s more! Josh Long from Pivotal also joins us to discuss the Spring story behind the microservices movement. Of course, we can’t talk about microservices without mentioning Spring — after all they provide the infrastructure behind NetFlix’s infamous microservices deployments, the example which seems to be used as the defacto microservices environment. Here’s a video of Josh being interviewed and discussing how Spring Boot and Spring Cloud works to provide a microservices environment, courtesy of InfoQ. Here’s Josh’s bio:
Josh is the Spring Developer Advocate at Pivotal. Josh is a Java Champion, author of 5 books (including O’Reilly’s upcoming “Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry”) and 3 best-selling video trainings (including “Building Microservices with Spring Boot Livelessons” w/ Phil Webb), and an open-source contributor (Spring Boot, Spring Integration, Spring Cloud, Activiti and Vaadin)
I’m really looking forward to hosting the event and hope you can join us! Don’t forget to register! Here’s that massive button again, incase you forgot. See you there!
