Cloud-Native Java Made Easy with MicroProfile


Come and experience for yourself first-hand how you can build could-native solutions and efficiently with MicoProfile, an open enterprice-grade Java programming model optimized for microservices and Cloud. (Watch out for a touch of Jakarta EE too!) We will cover a range of topics in a hands-on manner: -Easily developed RESTful and reactive services -Automated true-to-production testing using containers -Application considerations for cloud deployments with containers
