    There are many ways to structure knowledge, and many more ways to provide instruction. One of the simplest, oldest, and effective can be framed with three basic phases: (1) Know Where You Are, (2) Determine Where You Are Going, and (3) Plan How to Get There.

    In this meeting, Ron Peacetree will be kicking off a three-part presentation series, with Phase-2 sometime in the fall and Phase-3 early in the new year. We will be setting a foundation for the series this month with a highly interactive conversations about what we, the NEJUG membership, are actually experiencing in the workplace. 

    We will explore questions such as: 

    * What issues are we facing - personal, technical, managerial, cultural, etc?
    * What strategies are we using to address our “pain points”?
    * Where are we being successful, in both the large and small?

    Ron will guide the conversations, adding his own perspective where useful, but mostly drawing out and listening to our experiences. In this way, he will facilitate our collective sense of Knowing Where We Are. With that knowledge in hand, he will then develop the Phase-2 presentation to provide a clear and coherent vision of a place worth living in - a way of working and of managing our careers and personal growth that is worthy of our lives. In short, he will help us Determine Where We Are Going. Later, in Phase-3, he will discuss various strategies, techniques, and tools that will support an achievable Plan for How to Get There.

    After planning your work, you will be well prepared to take on Phase-4: Work Your Plan.

    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.
