Bio: John is the CTO of, founder and original community manager. As CTO, He is getting more involved within the community and focusing on the technologies of This includes letting the world know about cool technologies and projects on as well as looking for cool and new technologies to join He gets to write more code in this role and tinker with new technologies and that should be fun\!

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

April 18, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
