2018 NFJS Tour Director
Java is a language in evolution. There are a handful of language changes in Java 9 and 10 plus several JDK changes in 9, 10, 11, and 12. Some of these changes are significant in that they allow us to do things more effectively than before. The difference can be anywhere from reducing code to avoiding errors that come from verbosity. In this presentation we will explore the language changes first. Then we will visit the additions to the JDK. Along the way we will also look at a few things that have been removed from Java as well.
You’ve probably heard of MicroProfile, but how do you go from buzz to production? In this code-heavy, interactive presentation, we’ll describe how to use OpenTracing (http://opentracing.io/) with Jaeger (https://www.jaegertracing.io/) and annotations in MicroProfile and other Microservice architectures to reliably improve and deploy updated versions your applications to OpenShift and Kubernetes in the cloud. Topics include best practices for performance analysis, maintaining delivery pipelines using the Linux command line, plus tips on the best free OpenTracing tools and SDKs available on GitHub.
NOTE: This meeting is NOT on our normal "second-Thursday" schedule.
