Magnolia CMS

Magnolia CMS

May 20 2014

Like many new web applications, Sharecare wrestled between the convenience of an off-the-shelf CMS-based site and the flexibility of a home-grown solution. But instead of the traditional compromises involved in either solution, Sharecare chose to combine Spring Framework and Magnolias CMS to leverage the best of both approaches. In this talk Casey Dement, Sharecare’s VP of Architecture, will explain why this solution was chosen, how Sharecare made it work, and how the design of Magnolia CMS simplified this process.

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!
