Quarkus: Rethinking What We Already Know with John Clingan

ZOOM ONLY - REGISTER FOR EVENT TO GET URL Join the zoom at 6:30PT! Audio doesn't start until we do, so don't worry if you don't hear anything at first. Many developers have built up a skillset with their framework and APIs of choice. Java.MicroProfile. Java EE. Spring Boot. Vert.x. Camel. The list goes on. This talk will discuss how Quarkus supports many of the APIs you may already know, but allows you to use them more productively and run them more efficiently. This talk will also introduce some new Quarkus-specific APIs that deliver developer joy. John will detail how these are accomplished, along with demos and a small bit of live coding to see some of these features in action. John Clingan is a Senior Principal Product Manager at Red Hat focusing on next-generation platforms including Quarkus. He is also an Eclipse MicroProfile co-founder and committer. Prior to Red Hat John spent 8 years as the GlassFish and Java EE product manager at Oracle and Sun Microsystems. John has 30 years of industry experience (he's kinda old) including software development, systems administration, technical sales and consulting, and product management. He also has 10+ years of experience teaching Cal State and University of California Extension Java courses to intellectually hungry Java students, and more recently conducts Live Training for O'Reilly on MicroProfile and Quarkus.
