Microsoft + Pivotal JUG Tour
For this session, we are happy to offer you not one, but two talks! Folks at Pivotal at Microsoft are joining us in this event to demonstrate how you can join the club of cloud native applications with their tools, and how they integrate with each others. As this event will be a bit longer than the usual, a buffet will be provided so your stomach won't distract you from the content 😉 2️⃣🔊 Share the love Help us gather a maximum of participants by hanging our poster in your office or at the coffee corner: Don't hesitate to spread the news on social media too! ➡️📖 Abstracts 1️⃣ Going Reactive with Spring Boot 🍃 Reactive programming offers Java developers a way to build message-driven, elastic, resilient, and responsive services...yet many Java developers don't know where to begin. The Reactive Streams initiative provides a baseline and Project Reactor provides a great way to become immediately productive, leveraging reactive capabilities from end to end. Whether you're coming from a Spring MVC environment or a functional perspective, Reactor empowers you to spin up fully reactive Spring Boot 2 applications quickly and efficiently. 2️⃣ Taking Spring Apps for a Spin on Microsoft Azure Cloud ☁️ Found your app built and ready for deployment? It’s time to take them for a spin! Whether you pack and deploy as a Docker container, standalone or on Kubernetes, you will learn and see first-hand what open source tools and services are available for bringing your apps to the Cloud with ease and full DevOps pipeline. This talk will bring you up to speed with current best practices for Cloud Native deployment on Azure, and upcoming features. ➡️🗣 The Speakers 1️⃣ Bruno Borges (@brunoborges): Bruno is part of the Microsoft Azure Cloud Developer Advocacy team ( with the mission to lead a team of Java advocates and help engineers enhance and advance the Azure developer experience for Java developers.

    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.
