Micronaut: The New Wiz on the Block

Track: 2GM
Abstract

As we head into the third decade of the 21st century, the demands on applications are vastly different than the past. We need speed, performance, efficiency, smaller footprint, and at the same time, ease of development. Micronaut is a new library that has been designed from the scratch to provide just that. In this presentation we’ll learn about Micronaut, what it is useful for, and how to quickly build RESTful services and applications with it.
