October DJUG: Building modern web apps in Java - with live coding
Building modern web apps in Java - with live coding In this presentation, we'll build a reactive chat application with an open source Java stack: Spring Boot, Project Reactor, and Vaadin. The newly released Vaadin 10 is a next-generation web framework for the JVM. Vaadin boosts developer productivity with an extensive WebComponent library, an intuitive Java API, and automated server-client communication - which means you can build web apps 100% in Java. Speaker Bio The speaker for this meeting is Marcus Hellberg, coming in from the San Francisco Bay area. Marcus is a developer advocate at Vaadin, helping find, get started, and enjoy development with Vaadin. He has a background in embedded systems but has worked on everything web related for the past 12+ years. Rundown 6:30 - Doors open. Pizza, beverages, and networking. 7:00 - Opening Remarks, Industry News, Peer Review, and Jobs in Java. 7:10 - Main presentation (60 mins approx. with Q&A) 8:30 - Lights out.
