Here's a timezone calculator: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=vJUG+Session%3A+Java+Next+-+New+Releases%2C+Amber%2C+Valhalla%2C+and+More+Goodies&iso=20190822T17&p1=136&ah=1 Take part in the live session discussion on our slack channel: https://bit.ly/2ramaDW Abstract: With Java's switch to a six-month release schedule, the community needs to step up its game to stay up to date. Instead of having a year or more to prepare for a new release, it's a mere three months - we need to be better informed about what's going on to see changes coming before they're out. This talk: * explains the details behind the new schedule and how to stay up to date * presents Java 9 to 13 language features like `var` and switch expressions * shows the future of Java, brought by projects like Valhalla, Amber, and others * looks at features of upcoming releases like pattern matching, value types, and fibers Afterwards, you will not only know about the immediate future but also how to stay up to date without much effort. Speaker: Nicolai Parlog (@nipafx) Nicolai is a thirty-year-old boy, as the narrator would put it (if he's generous), who has found his passion in software development (mostly Java) and who codes for a living as well as [for fun][code]. He also [blogs], [writes], [newsletters], [speaks], [chats], [records], [streams], [trains, and consults][hire] about it, and organizes a [conference] - not all at the same time, but in prolific fits and starts with high throughput and long latencies. If you want to take the wheel, [hire] him for in-house trainings on new Java features, migrations to Java 9+, and JUnit 5. His home is at [codefx.org].

Kubernetes and The 12 Factors Cloud Applications

LONDON, london

This is a virtual Meetup occurring at 5PM UK time (GMT). Watch the live session broadcast on https://www.virtualjug.com Just click to join when the time comes! The recording will be available immediately afterward. Here's a timezone calculator: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=vJUG+Session%3A+Kubernetes+and+The+12+Factors+Cloud+Applications&iso=20190827T17&p1=136&ah=1 Take part in the live session discussion on our slack channel: https://bit.ly/2ramaDW Abstract: The 12-factor app methodology (https://12factor.net) is a best practice when comes to cloud application development and for the past years many developers employ it in order to facilitate both their current and future work. Containers and container orchestrators such as Kubernetes provide many primitives and abstractions to address the concerns of cloud applications, facilitating their optimization for scalability, elasticity and speed of change. In this session we will put in practice concepts for managing various types of application-container-platform interactions while following 12 factors methodology. Each of the factor will be supported by a demo. Speaker: Ana-Maria Mihalceanu (@ammbra1508) Ana-Maria Mihalceanu is a custom application development enthusiast, co-founder of Bucharest Software Craftsmanship Community and a constant adopter of challenging technical scenarios. Some of her older experiments are available on Dzone. In 2016, as tech passionate of cloud application development she achieved IBM Certified Application Developer - Cloud Platform v1. Since then, she has enriched her cloud expertise by learning and certifying as a Salesforce Developer and attained a better understanding on how to integrate different types of cloud offerings. Other passions? The knowledge hunt through reading and growing fashion skills through shopping.
