"Winds of Winter" and "A Dream of Spring" in Java.IL!!

We have two special guests this month visiting Israel at the same time Josh Long , Spring Developer Advocate and Java Champion and Gil Tene the CTO of Azul and a Java Champion as well. Josh will explain how to build Reactive software with Spring. Gil will speak about the changes in the licensing of Java and the changes in the eco system resulting from that.

* Reactive Streams - Josh Long *

Microservices and big-data increasingly confront us with the limitations of traditional input/output. In traditional IO, work that is IO-bound dominates threads. This wouldn’t be such a big deal if we could add more threads cheaply, but threads are expensive on the JVM, and most other platforms. Even if threads were cheap and infinitely scalable, we’d still be confronted with the faulty nature of networks. Things break, and they often do so in subtle, but non-exceptional ways. Traditional approaches to integration bury the faulty nature of networks behind overly simplifying abstractions. We need something better.

Spring Framework 5 is here ! It introduces the Spring developer to a growing world of support for reactive programming across the Spring portfolio, starting with a new Netty-based web runtime, component model and module called Spring WebFlux, and then continuing to Spring Data Kay, Spring Security 5.0, Spring Boot 2.0 and Spring Cloud Finchley. Sure, it sounds like a lot, but don’t worry! Join me, your guide, Spring developer advocate Josh Long, and we’ll explore the wacky, wonderful world of Reactive Spring together.

* Java: Winter is Coming - Gil Tene *

Winter is Coming. Starting on the 3rd week of April 2019. Fundamental changes from established norms will happen not only in the seven kingdoms, but also to the world of production Java deployments. In this talk, Gil Tene will discuss the immediately impending changes in the Java ecosystem, survey the options available for future production Java use, whether free and otherwise, and discuss the hard choices to be made in navigating the storm.
