Dude, what happened to my developer-first cloud? Production-easy Spring Cloud

Track: Cloud Technology
Abstract
Dude, what happened to my developer-first cloud? Production-easy Spring Cloud If you've used Spring Boot & Spring Cloud to build robust production systems, you know you love how it makes your microservices more stable, resilient, scalable, and manageable. Once upon a time, certain cloud environments took a similar, developer-first approach. Getting to production was as easy as pushing a JAR to the platform and letting it do all the heavy lifting, letting you focus on creating and delivering mission-critical features to your users. Remember, no one ever got praise and a raise for crafting the perfect Kubernetes YAML file...which is the universe's way of reminding you that you want -- you need -- to focus on writing great code, not on endlessly tweaking infrastructure. In this session, the presenter will examine the pieces needed for a Spring Boot developer-first cloud and then demonstrate how to unlock those pieces using intelligent deployment options that allow you to focus on what you do best: creating mission critical, game changing applications while the platform takes care of the rest. Come to this session to learn how to increase your company's -- and your -- value by getting back to what you do best and what brings you greatest joy: writing amazing code and delivering needed features to your users!
