Dear members,

For our April event we're visiting the ENTREPOT. We have two talks lined up for you. Maarten Van Hoof will talk about "Front End & OpenAPI" and Alexander Verbruggen will talk about "Vertically Integrated REST".

We hope to see you soon,

Dries & Rias

PS: Please remember to change your RSVP if you cannot attend.


We're also happy to announce Eventy, a new platform for managing your events. Eventy is currently under construction but as soon as it's ready we'll be moving with the user group to our new home. Visit https://eventy.io to subscribe to the newsletter and follow the twitter account at https://twitter.com/eventyio to be the first to know when it launches.

Front End & OpenAPI: Define, generate, develop by Maarten Van Hoof

As a developer, working with REST API dependencies ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. Security implications, parallel development, time or budget restrictions for writing documentation, …, in an enterprise you might not always have the ability to rely on your REST API dependencies for development, let alone for an automated testing environment.

The OpenAPI ecosystem offers us solutions in the form of virtually complete independence from a REST API during development and testing.

Maarten will guide you through a high-level overview of what the OpenAPI spec. is, how it can benefit front end development and how to use an automated OpenAPI mocking server in a test suite.

Speaker: If I say Java, you say Script! Together with his fellow front end developers, Maarten raises ISAAC’s JavaScript and CSS bar to a whole new level. With tools such as Vue.js, Nuxt.js and OpenAPI in his proverbial tool belt, he builds modern web projects that excel in speed and usability. Maarten’s in his happy place is when he’s working on isomorphic applications, projects where one single JavaScript code base can be run on a server as well as on the client. It’s iso-morphing time! http://mrtnvh.com http://isaac.nl

Vertically Integrated REST by Alexander Verbruggen

In this talk I will focus on end-to-end REST services. From building them to securing them to optimizing them with client and server based caching. However we go beyond the backend and look at how we can consume our automatically generated swaggers in the frontend. As a final piece of the puzzle we look at REST composition which offers an alternative to GraphQL but with the advantages of REST.

Speaker: Over the past 10 years Alexander has focused on finding new innovative ways to build software, breaking away from the traditional approaches. Powered by Java in the backend and VueJS in the frontend, the end result is a flexible low-code platform that massively accelerates software creation.
