The next B2GS meetup will be October 10 @ 6pm in Waltham:
Launching the Micro Future: Groovy, Grails, and Micronaut
With Jeff Scott Brown
And we will have a zoom meeting.
While this will be for the Boston Groovy Grails meetup, meaning a screw for our audience, I feel compeled to say that Micronaut can be used form plain Java and Kotlin.
In this talk, Jeff Brown will demonstrate how the future of Grails, GORM, and Micronaut are linked, as well as how the OCI Groovy and Grails team is taking productivity around developing microservices to the next level!
Micronaut is a new JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice applications. Unlike reflection-based IoC frameworks, which load and cache reflection data for every single field, method, and constructor in your code, with Micronaut, your application startup time and memory consumption are not bound to the size of your codebase.
The Micronaut framework shares many core values with Grails, including the enablement of code simplicity and developer productivity. Micronaut offers many additional features for a new class of applications (e.g., microservices, serverless deployments, etc.) that may not be well-suited for Grails.
Compelling aspects of the Micronaut framework include:
• Sub-second startup time
• Tiny processes that may run in as little as 8mb of heap
• No runtime reflection
• Dependency injection
• Load balancing
• And more!

While "DevOps" is a very overrated and misused marketing term, we have many DevOps stories from around the world proving that shared responsibility between Dev and Ops can work out really well.
A key component of DevOps is open communication and feedback loops. Monitoring data is one source of these feedback loops. Too often, however, this is only done in Operations for firefighting and root cause analysis. Kevin will discuss approaches of Shifting-Left Performance into the Continuous Delivery Pipeline to give earlier and faster performance, scalability and architectural feedback to developers, testers, architects and business.
The presentation will include some hands-on experience on how to bake monitoring into DevOps tool chains such as JIRA, Bitbucket, Jenkins, Git, HipChat, JMeter, … - there should be something for everyone who wants to learn some new tips & tricks on how to become more “DevOps’y”
