Talks on Wurreka:

The world is using technology more than ever before. This means running billions of applications on computers somewhere on the planet but as someone who is concerned for the environment what does that mean? If I pick microservice architecture over monolithic on the cloud, does that save electricity? All cloud hosting companies have their own data centres but if you take cost out of the equation what cloud provider is doing the most to save energy and therefore the planet? This talk will give you a brief look into how these data centres work and the impact they have on the environment.

Ever wondered what makes a cloud-native application “cloud-native”? Ever wondered what the unique challenges are and how best to address them on fully-open Java technologies? In this workshop, you’ll learn what it means to be cloud-native and how that impacts application development. You’ll learn about Eclipse MicroProfile, an industry collaboration defining technologies for the development and management of cloud-native microservices. With a full set of MicroProfile workshop modules available to you, you’ll be able to start with the basics of REST services and progress to more advanced topics, or you can jump right in and develop secure, fault tolerant, configurable and monitorable microservices.

Once you’ve developed your microservice, you’ll learn how to package it in a Docker container and deploy it to a Kubernetes cluster. Finally, you’ll learn the role OpenShift the hybrid cloud enterprise container platform. You'll deploy your application, scale it up and create routes that allow you to manage traffic to and from your deployments.
