What we're about

Welcome to the newest virtual home of the Philadelphia Area Java Users’ Group, twice rated by Sun as one of the world’s top Java User Groups! The Philly JUG’s main objective is to provide great learning events for our membership, and if you look at our history we’ve done just that. Over the past fifteen+ years the Philly JUG has done quite a bit of growing up. Very few of you might remember our first meeting, where about 35 members sat on the floor in the office of a long departed dot com. If you have been to a meeting recently you know how far we have come.

Building Microservices with Micronaut - A Full-Stack JVM-Based Framework

Micronaut, introduced in early 2018 by Object Computing, is a full-stack JVM-based framework for creating microservices-based, cloud native, and serverless applications that can be written in Java, Groovy, or Kotlin. This new framework provides a simple compile-time, aspect-oriented programming API that does not use reflection. Micronaut supports GraalVM-native images and offers compile-time support for Swagger, validation, and mapping annotations. With its own non-blocking web server built on top of Netty, reactive clients can be built declaratively and are implemented at compile time. This presentation will provide an introduction and overview of Micronaut, followed by a live demonstration of an application with microservices written in Java, Groovy, and Kotlin, respectively. Speaker: Michael Redlich Michael Redlich is a Senior Research Technician at ExxonMobil Research & Engineering with experience in developing custom scientific laboratory and web applications. His latest passions include MicroProfile, Jakarta EE, Helidon, Micronuat and MongoDB. Mike also serves as a Java community news editor for InfoQ. He has presented at venues such as Oracle Code One. Mike has been a member of the Amateur Computer Group of New Jersey (ACGNJ) since 1996 and currently serves on the Board of Directors as Past President. He founded the ACGNJ Java Users Group in 2001 and has been co-facilitating the group with Barry Burd. He is a member of Toastmasters International. Venue and Food Sponsor: Apex Systems (note that while the venue sponsor is Apex Systems, the meeting is taking place at the same conference room as usual at the posted address) Apex Systems was founded in Richmond, Virginia in 1995 by Brian Callaghan, Win Sheridan and Jeff Veatch, three friends who met at Virginia Tech. They were inspired to start Apex for three main reasons: * To treat job seekers better. * To provide a better staffing service for companies. * To build a company where the best recruiters, sales staff and infrastructure specialists would want to work.​
