  • Meetup: How to Build Enterprise Applications with Java and Spring

    Galvanize - San Francisco

    The enterprise is a fast moving world. New projects start, features need to be added to existing projects, and there are other common concerns like security, database access, logging, observability, and more! Meeting all these can require a lot of work. Finding ways to speed up project initialization, allow for the easy addition to existing projects, or provide pre-package solutions to common concerns like those mentioned above is important. Luckily Spring and Spring Boot is here to meet all those needs! In this presentation, we will take a quick high level look at the Spring framework, with a particular emphasis on Spring Boot, and how it can help enterprises deliver high quality applications that require minimal maintenance.
