Are you an impatient programmer who wishes the keyboard could keep up with you? If you've ever wished Java and Spring could do more to keep up, then this is the place to be. We present Spring Boot, a toolkit and runtime platform that will get you up and running with Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services faster than you believed possible. The goals are:
- Radically faster and widely accessible getting started experience for Spring development
- Be opinionated out of the box, but get out of the way quickly as requirements start to diverge from the defaults
- Provide a range of non-functional features that are common to large classes of projects (e.g. embedded servers, security, metrics, health checks, externalized configuration)
- First class support for REST-ful services, modern web applications, batch jobs, and enterprise integration
- Applications that adapt their behavior or configuration to their environment
- Optionally use Groovy features like DSLs and AST transformations to accelerate the implementation of basic business requirements

As data-driven applications become more widespread, the services that provide the data are becoming more critical. Most commonly these data services are exposed via REST-ful APIs. This session describes what exactly makes a service REST-ful, how to implement a REST-ful API using Spring, and how to test that API.

It's been an amazing year for Spring! 2013 saw the Spring family join Pivotal where - along with Cloud Foundry and our data driven technologies (the Pivotal HD Hadoop distribution, the GemFire data grid, and the RabbitMQ message broker) - Spring supports today's application workloads and profiles. Today's Spring embraces Java 8, Scala, Groovy, provides a best-in-class REST stack, supports the open web, mobile applications, big-data applications and batch workloads. Today's Spring is easy to get started with, easy to learn, and embraces conventions over configuration. Today's Spring is part of the Spring.IO platform. Today's Spring is...Pivotal. Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long as he re-introduces you to today's Spring, a Spring you may not have seen yet.
We are glad to announce that we will host a free conference about Spring and Cloud Foundry on Sunday November 24th at the office of SpringPeople in Bangalore, from 10.00 AM to 12.30 PM.

The event sessions include:
- Cloud Foundry: Using Spring to Deploy your Apps to the Cloud by Paul Chapman
Paul Chapman is a Senior Consultant within our Australian service delivery division, where he undertakes consulting, training and mentoring of our clients across Asia-Pacific. He joined SpringSource in 2007 and has, since then, taught Spring to more than 1000 students.
Presenter: Josh Long, Pivotal and John Davies, C24
While some of today's systems can hit μSec performance it usually take a lot of good design and optimization. The solution is often hard-baked and inflexible and the end user still wants the flexibility promised by ESBs with dynamic routing based on runtime rules with transformations from one format to another. Josh and John will walk you through the latest in high performance message handling with Spring Integration covering non-XML (binary and CSV) data, code generation, on-the-fly compilation, dynamic routing and in-memory queries - an hour well spent.

Developing Big Data applications is a relatively new art and developing a comprehensive solution can be challenging. Some of the key challenges arise from bringing together complex domains such as stream analysis, batch workflow orchestration and data import and export. Several open source projects that address developing big data applications have emerged in the past few years but each project typically only address one of these domains. Furthermore, being distinct independent projects they have different configuration and extensibility models. Spring XD is a new project that aims to tackle big data complexity. It builds upon proven Spring technologies and provides a scalable runtime environment that is easily configured and assembled via a simple DSL. Come discover how easy it is to create big data applications in this introduction to Spring XD.
Presenter: Josh Long, Pivotal
A brief (20 minute) interview with Josh Long doing some live hacking with Spring Boot, Spring MVC and Groovy. Check out the live hack - creating a simple, paramaterized RESTful service. Check out Josh as he struggles (and wins) versus a UK-layout to secure the service endpoints, adds basic monitoring and metrics, and accesses the remote service via SSH.
The final month of the year is coming and you might still have some training budget left to start the year 2014 off as a Spring master. To help you out we have made a discount available for all of our developers. Simply use the code springtime in the referral code field when registering for a Spring training* to get a 20% discount on the list price. Our full schedule for December is:

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2013 in Santa Clara, CA.
Speaker: Ashley Puls, NewRelic
Operations teams tend to get nervous when debugging tools are installed on production systems. This is understandable as most people have had at least one debugging tool crash a system. However, are there tools that can be run in a production environment? This talk will cover methods and tools that can be used to uncover and resolve performance problems arising in Java web applications that use the Spring Framework. This talk will touch on a few common problems such as slow SQL, slow web page load times, blocked threads, and exceptions in the code. It will use a variety of diagnostic tools to examine these problems including log files, jmap, jvisualvm, and New Relic. Finally, the talk will evaluate the use of these tools in a production environment, separating them into what can and cannot be realistically used in live production web applications.

Readers of Josh Bloch's "Effective Java" are sometimes perplexed when they reach Item #15: "Minimize Mutability." If we are to minimize mutability, then obviously we must maximize immutability. While all Java programmers utilize immutable objects every day (e.g. java.lang.String), when asked to create our own immutable classes, we often hesitate. However, if we push through this hesitation, we'll reap the benefits of simpler reasoning about program correctness, free thread safety, and other benefits.
