Presented by Trisha Gee. We hear it’s common to create an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) in a language that facilitates rapid prototyping, and then migrate to the JVM when the application requires better stability and performance.

I’m going to use Java to create a web application in under an hour. The JVM is a polyglot platform, and I’ll show how to use the correct tools for this application, including: AngularJS; Bootstrap; HTML 5; Web Services; Java; MongoDB; and Groovy - it’s fully buzz-word-compliant. I won’t go into every technology in depth, I’ll demonstrate the role of each tool and how they interact.

At the end of the talk we’ll have a fully working mobile/browser-friendly app, without compromising on design or good practice. It’s even going to have tests.


Trisha has developed Java applications for a range of industries, including finance, manufacturing and non-profit, for companies of all sizes. She has expertise in Java high performance systems, is passionate about enabling developer productivity, and right now is getting to grips with working in an Open Source fashion as a developer for MongoDB Inc, where she contributes to the Java driver and Morphia. Trisha blogs regularly on subjects that she thinks developers and other humans should care about, she’s a leader of the Sevilla Java & MongoDB User Groups, a key member of the London Java Community and a Java Champion - she believes we shouldn't all have to make the same mistakes again and again.
