What we're about

The Java platform and its ecosystem is more vibrant than ever. Brussels is a great city full of talent.

Mix both, and you'll get the BruJUG, a local Java User Group where passionate Java developers can, for FREE, attend presentations given by passionate speakers.

Since 2010, a simple formula: an evening session with one (or more) speaker(s) on various tech topics, followed by a well deserved drink/meal in a pub nearby for anyone interested in following the discussion.

Our stage is open to technology experts, developer advocates, but also to any of you willing to share parts of his/her knowledge with the crew.

Spring Boot with Kofu and Coroutines

Happy New Year everyone! 🎉 We hope you had the opportunity to spend a great time with your families and friends. We'll start this year with our friends of the BeKUG, and we invite you to discover a glimpse of the future that Pivotal is cooking for Spring. Abstract: ========= This presentation will give me the opportunity to present the upcoming official support of coroutines in Spring (Framework, Boot, Data) as well as Kofu, the Kotlin DSL, developed within the the Spring Fu incubator that I started a few months ago, which goal is to configure Spring Boot in a more explicit as well as more efficient manner. My live coding will demonstrate how to develop a Spring Boot application with Kofu by using the new Coroutine API's from WebFlux and Spring Data R2DBC (Reactive SQL). We will also compare Reactive API's versus Coroutines (pros and cons) to help you make informed decisions. The Speaker: Sébastien Deleuze ======================================= Sébastien works for Pivotal as Spring Framework committer. His main involvement are to bring Kotlin support on the various Spring projects, the Web support and Reactive aspect of the Spring framework. He recently created project Spring Fu. He is also part of the organising team of the MiXiT conference. Share the love ============== Help us gather a maximum of participants by hanging our poster in your office or at the coffee corner.

JUnit 5: Next Generation Framework for Next Generation Testing

Hi folks 👋 We are lucky to have a second event this month. This time, we'll try to boost your confidence in the product(s) you are building. How? By testing, of course! Join us and learn how the latest version of JUnit can help you write more powerful and more expressive tests for your beloved codebase. Abstract: ========= Looking to upgrade your project's unit tests to the latest and greatest? Want to know about the future of JVM testing? Is your inner artisan looking to increase the elegance and readability of his/her tests? Tired of JUnit 4's limited support for parameterized tests, exception and timeout verification, and inflexible runner model? JUnit 5, the latest big release of the Java world's most popular testing framework might just get you a few steps closer to testing heaven! Of course a framework is just a tool so in addition to a walkthrough of its most interesting features the session will contain: * Guidance on how and when to use the new features * A closer look at JUnit 5's architecture * Migration strategies * Tooling * Compatibility with other libs, ...
