    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

    Speaker Biography

    Kuldeep Gulati is an Architect Engineer with extensive experience in architecting and building  scalable, resilient, and loosely coupled micro-services. He has proven ability in designing solutions with eagle eye focus on Application Stability, Performance, and Resiliency in production environments utilizing cloud native solutions .

    He provides Architecture Guidance and contributes with hands-on efforts. These days his big focus is on bringing the practice of Chaos Engineering closer to the work teams where developers ensure fault tolerance before pushing code to the repository, and automating the Chaos testing process via CI/CD platform and including the infrastructure components to see their impact on defined SLO for an application.

    Kuldeep enjoys sharing his learning with others fellow techies and is always looking for opportunities to level-up an application to make sure its non-blocking, loosely coupled, cloud native and above all resilient to failures.

    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.

    This month, sign-up is only through our MeetUp group.

    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.

    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?
