we just scheduled our November BWB Meetup (Monday, November 24, 2014).
• Realizing Micro-Service Architectures with Vert.x by Christian Bick
Vert.x is a lightweight, high performance application platform for the JVM that's designed for modern mobile, web, and enterprise applications. The talk will explain the basic concepts that drive Vert.x and will illustrate actual implementation on the basis of an example project.
• A Continous Deployment Pipeline with Gradle by Martin Klewitz
Gradle is a versatile build system that is also an effective tool to create continuous deployment pipelines. Martin will show how a deployment pipeline can be set up that include a green blue deployment model, contract tests and bringing the system live in 150 lines of Gradle script. It is a powerful tool for the deployment of microservices.
