    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.

    Speaker Biography

    Jonathan Johnson has been engineering and shipping commercial software for some twenty years. The software has the amazing potential to improve and even save lives. Sadly, the lousy software can miss this potential. His journey is driven by delivering helpful software to move us forward.

    His early work began with laboratory instrument software and managing its data. Jonathan was enticed by the advent of object-oriented design and Windows to develop personal banking software. Banking soon turned to the internet and enterprise applications took off. Java exploded onto the scene and since then he has inhabited that ecosystem. At 454 Life Sciences and Roche Diagnostics Jonathan returned to laboratory software and leveraged Java-based state machines and enterprise services to manage the terabytes of data flowing out of DNA sequencing instruments. 
    Today his journey continues with Thermo Fisher Scientific as a hands-on architect continuously delivering a platform that utilizes microservices. Laboratories leverage this platform for customized medicine, drug development, food safety and furthering research into challenging diseases.

    Jonathan enjoys comparing and sharing his journey with peers. He shares ways to modernize application architectures to adhere to the fundamentals of high modularity and loose coupling. A longtime resident of Connecticut, he discusses his experiences with Connecticut Java User Group, NewHaven.io and DevOps CT. You will often see Jonathan schooling and retooling on the NFJS tours.

    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

    • Java in the AWS Cloud

    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.
