**Lightning Talk 1 - Kubernetes for Java Developers**
This presentation will cover most of the tools required for a java developer to get started with Kubernetes - maven plugins for creating docker images, automated builds in docker hub, minikube for local testing and some tools like ELK and Zipkin for having visibility.
**Lightning Talk 2 - Spring Cloud Kubernetes Incubator**
Spring Cloud provides great abstractions for cloud native applications and components but it predates kubernetes and overlaps with some of its services - the Spring Cloud Kubernetes Incubator project provides implementations to hook into the Kubernetes Native Services.
**Cloud Native Java for Kubernetes**
Kubernetes and Spring Cloud both offer great sets of tools to develop modern applications - this presentation will share an Open Source example project as a blueprint for using them. The Activiti team will also talk about the advantages and challenges of going cloud
native.Through the example the team will show why they love Spring Cloud and how it can be augmented with Business Automation capabilities using Activiti Cloud.
