Write Java Apps Faster Using SaaS Developer Environments

Write Java Apps Faster Using SaaS Developer Environments
Presented by Tyler Jewell (45 mins approx.)

The Java community is filled with terrific solutions for enabling development of apps.  Every Java developer has their choice of tools and the openness of the platform makes it accessible to anyone and extensible by everyone.

But why then, is 99% of all development still done locally?  While sales, marketing, customer service, support, finance, and infrastructure has steadily moved to the cloud over the past decade, Java development remains rooted on the desktop.  Will it always be this way?

In this session, we will discuss the evolution of remote development of Java applications and the emergence of SaaS Developer Environments.  Often times called a cloud IDE, a SaaS environment can eliminate configuration, increase collaboration, and alleviate management concerns around consistency, compliance, and velocity.   In essence, SaaS developer environments can make agile, more agile.

We will present a beta of the Codenvy Cloud, a sister system to that has been in development since 2011.

Oh, and pizza / beers / stickers included, too!

Session Agenda

1) Why Cloud Development
2) Types of SaaS Developer Environments
3) Demo of Codenvy Cloud
  ** Remote workspace & project configuration
  ** CLI & Browser access
  ** Temporary, on-demand environments
  ** Shared development: editor, syntax analysis, collaborative coding
  ** Cloud build, dependency management, unit test (maven / ant / groovy)
  ** Cloud debug (runner, multi-process container, shell access)
  ** Project persistence (storage, image mgmt, privacy)
  ** Project creation (resource management, cloud bindings)
  ** Datasource management (cloud vs. local resources)
  ** Analytics (user dashboard, derived metrics, session tracking)
  ** Cloning (creating re-usable environments, embeddable, customizable)
  ** Plug-ins (extending browser and server-side cloud functionality)
  ** APIs (accounts, workspaces, projects, runners, builders, etc.)
  ** Offline and On-Premises Access (running proprietary clouds)

i) Lift, grails, wicket, tapestry, GWT, JSF, Thymelaf, xtream, Vaadin, Shale, velocity, Play, Struts
ii) JBoss, GlassFish, WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic, Jetty, Resin, Tomcat, Virgo, Geronimo, TomEE
iii) JRuby, Groovy, Maximize, Kotlin, Jython, Scala, Ceylon, Clojure, Rhino.

This talk will be presented using PPT + demo + live coding.

    Manik Surtani will also present: "CockroachDB: A transactional geo-replicated key-value store"

    Synopsis: "Most NoSQL databases today force developers to choose eventual/weak consistency in exchange for availability/replication. But the state of the art has moved forward since Eric Brewer first postulated his CAP Theorem 14 years ago. Do newer techniques on distributed consensus protocols mean that we can build transactional, geographically distributed systems which are highly available? Are we entering an era where application developers no longer have to deal with the complexities and brittleness of eventual consistency?"
