DevCon – Sneak Peak at what’s coming for the Java Platform

Bio: As Director of Technology Outreach & Sun’s Open Source Programs Office, Matt Thompson leads Sun’s developer program (the Sun Developer Network) Sun’s technology evangelism efforts worldwide, and driving Sun’s open source strategy for developers. His team focuses on both building communities and educating and enabling communities of developers to easily adopt Sun’s emerging technologies across both the Java and Solaris platforms.

Abstract: This session will cover much of the “what’s new” that will be talked about at JavaOne this June in San Francisco.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 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!
