Wat we doen

This is the Java User Group for everyone interested in Java, JVM, Web Development, Free and Open Source Software who are located in Amsterdam or Netherlands.

The "official language" is English, so that non-Dutch speakers can also participate easily.

Looking forward to meeting you all and exchange of knowledge and ideas

Title: Service Mesh for Java Developers

Service Mesh is the future of application connectivity. It delivers immediate value to architecture by increasing our application traffic's security, reliability, and observability. It abstracts the underlying network details and provides discovery, routing, and a variety of other functionality.

In this service mesh presentation, Viktor will show you how easy it is to get started (in Kubernetes) - how to install a control plane, deploy a JVM-based demo application (using popular Java frameworks like Spring Boot, Micronaut, etc), enable traffic policies, and touch on observability.

Title: "Developer Productivity Engineering: What's In It For Me?"

Developer Productivity Engineering (DPE) is the Next Big Thing in Software Development. But what is it? How will it foster Developer Joy? And how can you introduce it to your organization?

It may surprise you to learn that we developers are a patient, tolerant species. People pay us to do what we enjoy: write code and create working applications. In return, we will put up with all sorts of blockages and toil that get in the way of this: long build times, flaky tests, hard-to-debug toolchain failures and so on.

Is this truly the price we need to pay? Could there be a better world, where the build is as fast as it could possibly be? A world where problems that affect many developers are quickly identified and fixed?

Welcome to the world of Developer Productivity Engineering, where we can get computers to do what they’re good at (automation) to make developers’ lives easier, and make us more effective at our jobs. And while developer joy may be a difficult thing to sell to decision-makers, effective developers who are making the best use of their time, and their hardware, have a direct impact on an organization’s ROI.

In this talk, Trisha will explore what DPE is, give you some practical ways to get started, and discuss ways to help the leaders in your organisation to understand the enormous value DPE could unlock.
