Please join us Tuesday night, April 23, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM at the IBM Executive Briefing Center in Building 904 located at 11501 Burnet Road to hear about some of the work IBM has been doing in the realm of MicroProfile. For anyone not already familiar with it, MicroProfile (https://microprofile.io/) is a project "aimed at optimizing Enterprise Java for the microservices architecture." In this meeting, IBM's own Kevin Sutter will be speaking about developing microservices in the MicroProfile programming model with the help of Open Liberty and Jim Mulvey will be giving an introduction to Java EE 8 security and the Microprofile JSON Web Token (JWT).

First Talk

Title: MicroProfile and Liberty – A Match Made for the Cloud!

Speaker: Kevin Sutter

Abstract: Open Liberty is referred to as the “de facto reference implementation” for MicroProfile. This session will explain how the Eclipse MicroProfile programming model will help with your development of microservices. It will also demonstrate why Open Liberty is the best implementation for MicroProfile - whether you are developing for the Cloud or on-premise.

About Kevin: Kevin has been actively developing in Java ever since he could spell “WebSphere”. Kevin’s most recent endeavor is leading the IBM effort on the Eclipse MicroProfile project (http://microprofile.io). He is also a member of the Eclipse EE4J PMC (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j), which is guiding the effort of moving Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation.

Second Talk

Title: An introduction to Java EE 8 security and Microprofile JWT

Absract: In this talk we'll provide insights on the new capabilities that came with Java EE 8 security and how these are relevant with Java applications in container environments. We'll also discuss Microprofile JWTs and cover how significant this capability is for securing microservices built in Java.

Speaker: Jim Mulvey

About Jim: Jim is a senior technical staff member (STSM) on the IBM WebSphere Application Server development team. He is the lead architect for the security components in traditional WAS and Liberty.
