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.

Consumer Driven Contracts: The Evolution of Your API Using Tests

Hi everyone! This time, we have the opportunity to have a look at one of the many aspects that you have to tackle when using SOA/Microservices architecture: API evolution! Abstract ======== Did you ever struggle integrating with an API from another team that kept on changing? Or provided an API that you were unsure how to evolve because you did not know how people use it? During this talk you will experience how to organize, define and evolve APIs keeping the consumer in mind and learn how Pact can help you with this. After explaining the basics, we will define the API for a small project together implementing both consumer and producer. No prior knowledge is needed, but some technical affinity, understanding of what an API is, and notions of coding might be helpful to understand what is going on.
