  • Event Streaming and Processing using Apache Pulsar

    Thursday September, 15, 2022 06:30 PM Zoom Meeting Anywhere - MA

    REGISTER

    The world is moving at an unprecedented pace and much of it has been powered by the innovations in software and systems.  While event handling, messaging, and processing are not necessarily brand new concepts, the recent emergence in hardware such as virtualizations, multi-core processors, and so on, are in fact pushing the envelope in software design and development, elevating it to higher levels of capabilities never seen before.  In the case of streaming which very often leverages on the underlying messaging mechanism(s) to bring distributed messaging to higher forms of purposes, such as IoT/IIoT applications, AI/ML data pipelines, or even eCommerce recommendations, event streaming platform has indeed become the “glue” in enabling data to flow through disparate systems in the pipeline and in a very dynamic fashion.


    This talk on event streaming is meant for anyone interested in learning about it, and understanding how it fits into the modern software development design and architecture, as well as seeing some of the challenges it faces especially in the Cloud Native environment.  We’ll then take a look at an open source platform - Apache Pulsar, which is poised to become the de facto new generation of distributed messaging and streaming platform that will bring joy to developers, and enable systems and applications to be highly responsive with its true real-time capabilities.

  • Put Your Best Boot (Spring) Forward: Spring Boot Best Practices

    Thursday July, 14, 2022 06:30 PM Zoom Meeting Anywhere - MA
    0

    In this example-driven session, we'll review several tips and tricks to make the most out of your Spring development experience. You'll see how these tips fit into a real (albeit small) Spring application and be able to take them with you as you apply them to your project.

    Spring has been the de facto standard framework for Java development for nearly two decades. Over the years, Spring has continued to evolve and adapt to meet the ever-changing requirements of software development. And for nearly half that time, Spring Boot has carried Spring forward, capturing some of the best Spring patterns as auto-configuration.

    As with any framework or language that has this much history and power, there are just as many ways to get it right as there are to get it wrong. How do you know that you are applying Spring in the best way in your application?

    <H3>NOTE: Registration is ONLY via MeetUp:</H3> <H4> <A HREF="https://www.meetup.com/nejug1/events/267429533/">MeetUp Registration: Creating Resilient Micro-Services</A>. </H4> <HR>

    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

    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.
