Future of Java Discussion

Future of Java Discussion

January 17, 2012

2011 saw the release of Java 7, the explosion of Android (and lawsuits), the evolution of Scala and Groovy, and many other events big and small. What will 2012 bring to the Atlanta Java Community? For our January meeting, we are hosting an open discussion with the community to get your predictions, lamentations, and hopes for the next year of Java technologies.

The AJUG board will be moderating the discussion, and all questions and comments will be welcome. In addition, we would like to ring in the new year by providing drinks (beer/wine/soda) to our members for this meeting.

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!
