Generating REST documentation with Spring REST Docs - Jeroen van Schagen

During this talk, we will demonstrate how to document RESTful services with Spring REST Docs. Using the Spring MVC Test framework we will generate realistic examples, which we combine with hand-written content using Asciidoctor. The result will be a readable user guide, in contrast with the confusing API documentation generated by Swagger. Because our examples are generated using tests, the documentation will always be valid and up-to-date.

Jeroen van Schagen is a software engineer for 42 BV. He has over 7 years of experience in developing commercial software products for clients in diverse domains. Most of these products are developed using a wide variety of Spring products, including MVC, Batch and Data. Currently he is developing a product to facilitate changes in the academic structures of universities.

The Bootiful Application - Josh Long

Alright, so maybe "bootiful" won't ever work, but I tried, and it was worth it too because you're reading this. Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development not just fly, but pleasant! Spring Boot aims to make address the common functional and non-functional requirements that gate quickly moving to production.

Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long for a look at what Spring Boot is, why it's turning heads, why you should consider it for your next application (REST, micro services, web, batch, big data, integration, whatever!) and how to get started.

Josh Long is the Spring developer advocate. Josh is the lead author on Apress' Spring Recipes, 2nd Edition, O'Reilly's "Getting Started with Spring Roo", and Manning's "Cloud Foundry in Action" and a SpringSource committer and contributor.

When he's not hacking on code for (Spring Integration, Spring Batch, Spring MVC, Activiti, and much more), he can be found at the local Java User Group or at the local coffee shop. Josh has been a speaker at numerous conferences, worldwide. He likes solutions that push the boundaries of the technologies that enable them. His interests include scalability, BPM, grid processing, mobile computing and so-called "smart" systems.
