Holidays Fireside Chat on Microservices with Andres Almiray and Josh Juneau
We are having a special pre-holiday fireside chat that will warm us all up for the holidays :). Two fantastic Java Champions - Andres Almiray from Switzerland, and Josh Juneau (yes our very own Josh!) - will present to us topics that are related to Microservices. ABSTRACT: Andres Almiray on "Going Reactive with gRPC" gRPC is Google's option for establishing two-way communication between two network connected entities. This technology allows you to stream data from one side to the other and back again, or to/from both sides at the same time! Meanwhile ReactiveStreams implementations such as RxJava and Project Reactor let you define data pipelines that send data cross the wire. What if it were possible to combine both? Well you're in luck because it turns out you can! gRPC brings to the table HTTP2, security, encryption and a binary protocol while ReactiveStreams brings a multitude of operations (such as composition, filtering, transformations) that make it easier to work with flows of data. Come learn how these two technologies may help you in your daily job. .......... Josh Juneau on "Lightweight Java EE with MicroProfile" MicroProfile was introduced as a lightweight profile for developing Java EE applications. Over the past couple of years, MicroProfile has gained traction, and there are now a number of implementations across a variety of vendors. MicroProfile allows WAR deployments of a minimal size, packaging only the APIs that are necessary for your application. Coupled with deployment of MicroProfile applications to micro containers such as Payara Micro, OpenLiberty, and Thorntail, we are seeing that Java EE applications can be much more agile and lightweight. In this session, I will cover how to get started with MicroProfile, covering a number of different implementations. I will then I’ll demonstrate how to package MicroProfile solutions into Docker containers so that you can begin developing lightweight Java EE applications today, using a widely supported set of APIs.

    Cosa facciamo

    The Chicago Java User’s Group is here to help the Java Professional. We want to make Chicago the ‘best’ place to be a Java developer, by offering a support network that allows each individual Java developer to grow! Its only purpose it to serve its community by focusing in three areas: - Learning about the Java Craft - Making a Difference in the Java Community - Growing as a Java Professional

    AND please, this is for those who program Java, NOT for recruiters, NOR staffers, NOR head hunters, career creators, or whatnots. While we do love what you do, this place is a sanctuary for us Java Developers. Wanna fight for the best talent in town, head to our LinkedIn group ( Interested in presenting? Email us at .
