  • Welcome to NEJUG

    The New England Java Users Group is open to everyone interested in Java and the JVM. Meetings are usually held on the second Thursday of each month. The meetings and membership are free. We do not hold meetings in July and December. The NEJUG was formed in November 1998. We currently have over 6000 members. Meeting space is limited and we must ask members to register in order to attend meetings. It is common for over 300 people to register for a single meeting! What better way to meet new people interested in Java, development, architecture, or just get your technical questions answered.

  • Want to help?

    NEJUG is a volunteer driven organization, we can always use help from our community members, we can use your help with organizing the monthly meetings, adding new features and maintaining the website etc.,

      MeetUp Registration: Creating Resilient Micro-Services.


      The foundation of Application Resiliency is often found in the application code where Fault Tolerance is baked into the application at the time of designing and coding….

      This presentation starts with building resiliency ground-up by baking the basic crucial patterns into the application. Resiliency4j provides the out of the box integration with Spring Boot, a defacto standard micro-service framework.

      The patterns discussed include:

      • Rate Limiter
      • Retry
      • Bulkhead
      • Circuit Breaker
      • Timeouts
      • Distilling Java Containers

      Three evolutionary ecosystems work well together: Java, Containers, and Kubernetes. Past versions of Java were never designed to be "container aware." This has led some to stray from the JVM to consider other shiny languages for Containers.

      But wait, let’s discover what Java 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (…) has done to get our applications into efficiently distilled containers that pack nicely into Kubernetes.

      In this presentation, Java developers will learn all about the broad support AWS provides to develop, build, and deploy Java applications on AWS. Services covered:

      • AWS Tools & SDKs
      • Codestar
      • Lambda
      • AWS Fargate
      • Amazon Corretto

       

      There will be a demo on how to quickly get a Spring Boot application up and running within Fargate (a serverless container offering from AWS) using the Cloud Development Kit.

      The Cloud Development Kit (CDK) is a new project aimed at easily creating Infrastructure as Code. It allows you to express AWS infrastructure in programming languages such as Java or TypeScript. This allows you to write logic such as loops and inheritance that enables developers to easily construct sophisticated AWS environments using the full power of Java to specify and materialize an infrastructure, including base provisioning and beyond.

      • Developer Productivity Engineering

      With software projects becoming more and more complex, delivering new features into production quickly and safely has become a major challenge for most software organizations today. Making sure developers are able to develop and deploy new features in rapid cycles is a key success factor, but this task has long been neglected. The most successful software organizations are prioritizing this key success factor through a new practice called Developer Productivity Engineering. This practice is based on a culture where the entire organization collaborates to maximize developer productivity.

      This talk will address the questions:

      • What are the challenges organizations are facing regarding developer productivity?

      • Who is responsible for maximizing developer productivity?

      • Which skills are required in developer productivity engineering?

      • What tools do teams use to measure and improve their productivity?
