Matt Raible - Microservices for the Masses
6:00 : Pizza 6:20 : Announcements 6:30-7:45 : Matt Raible - Microservices for the Masses 7:30 : Door Prizes Location http://ujug.org/ujug-meeting-location Microservices for the Masses Microservices are all the rage and being deployed by many Java Hipsters. If you’re working on a large team that needs different release cycles for product components, microservices can be a blessing. If you’re working at your VW Restoration Shop and running its online store with your own software, having five services to manage and deploy can be a real pain. Share your knowledge and experience about microservices in this informative and code-heavy talk. We’ll use JHipster (a Yeoman generator) to create Angular + Spring Boot apps on separate instances with a unified front-end. I’ll also show you options for securing your API gateway and individual applications using JWT. Heroku, Kubernetes, Docker, ELK, Spring Cloud, Okta; there will be plenty of interesting demos to see! Matt Raible is a Java Champion and Developer Advocate at Okta with a passion for skiing, mountain biking, VWs, and good 🍺. Driving a '66 21-window and a '90 Syncro. Made in Montana. @mraible on Twitter. Matt's presentation is provided by Okta, who is also a UJUG sponsor

What presenters are saying

Loved it. Huge crowd. Incredibly well organized from the setup, through the games & promotions, the speakers, and the energy / commitment of the crowd. Real practitioners of Java working on real issues. Would absolutely participate again.

Tyler Jewell, CEO CodeEnvy

It's been a privilege to speak at UJUG multiple times. Developers who know stuff, eager to learn, and with a great sense of humor—all combined into one with an efficient leadership makes this a very enjoyable group.

Presenting a Java 8 session to the Utah Java Users Group last month was a pleasure. The audience was cordial and knowledgeable, and the organizers were very hospitable and accommodating. I'm looking forward to the opportunity of speaking there again!

James Weaver, Oracle

Presenting at UJUG was a great experience. UJUG consistently draws the largest audiences out of any other developer meetup in SLC. It is full of seasoned engineers that ask thoughtful questions during and after presentations. By presenting I made a number of useful connections that I otherwise would not have. If you ever have the chance to present jump on it!

Ben Mabey

The UJUG is an engaged audience and a well knowledgeable one. While that is enough to scare any prospective speaker, don't be. They are wonderful, friendly, and grateful for anyone who stands on their stage.

Daniel Hinojosa

UJUG is one of my favorite speaking opportunities. The attendance is one of the larger of Java User Groups in the U.S., which lends energy to the presentation atmosphere. The UJUG members ask insightful questions as practitioners looking to level up their skills, which, as a speaker, makes me feel appreciated. Lastly, the group is well sponsored and well run, which showcases its health, makes it an important event to attend, and creates a structure to the evening that feels classy to both presenter and audience alike.
