Speakers: Josh Long

Alright, so maybe "bootiful" won't ever work, but I tried, and it was worth it too because you're reading this. Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development not just fly, but pleasant! Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long for a look at what Spring Boot is, why it's turning heads, why you should consider it for your next application (REST, micro services, web, batch, big data, integration, whatever!) and how to get started.

Hadoop gives us dramatic volume scalability at a cheap price. But core Hadoop is designed for sequential access - write once and read many times; making it impossible to use hadoop from a real-time/online application. Add a distributed in-memory tier in front and you could get the best of two worlds - very high speed, concurrency and the ability to scale to very large volume. We present the seamless integration of in-memory data grids with hadoop to achieve interesting new design patterns - ingesting raw or processed data into hadoop, random read-writes on operational data in memory or massive historical data in Hadoop with O(1) lookup times, zero ETL Map-reduce processing, enabling deep-scale SQL processing on data in Hadoop or the ability to easily output analytic models from hadoop into memory. We introduce and present the ideas and code samples through Pivotal in-memory real-time and the Hadoop platform.

Big data and Hadoop is widely considered to be the next generation data platform. Hadoop is notoriously difficult to work with and just diving in and starting coding can easily lead to frustration. A better way is to leverage your existing Java and Spring skills to take advantage of these new technologies. In this presentation we will introduce Spring Data for Apache Hadoop and see how it can make working with Hadoop easier. We will also cover several ways to install a small Hadoop cluster that can be used to test your new Hadoop applications.

Speakers: Martin Lippert (Pivotal), Mike Milinkovich (Eclipse Foundation)

The Eclipse IDE (as one example) is great, but increasingly we are seeing new projects and companies working in the cloud-based developer tooling space, using a front-end that runs purely in the browser. The Eclipse Orion project is one example of this. While the new approaches look promising, they are usually completely disconnected from the existing desktop-class IDEs and are still lightyears away from working well for Java developers. In this webinar Martin Lippert will provide a sneak peek into Project Flux, a new project that is hosted at Eclipse and that we've been working on that aims at bridging this gap between existing desktop-class IDEs and future cloud-based developer tooling. While this project is still far away from shipping a ready-to-use release, the webinar provides an insight into the prototype and what is coming in the future. Special guest introduction from Mike Milinkovich, exec director of the eclipse foundation.

Speakers: Josh Long (Pivotal) and Ashley Puls (New Relic)

There is more and more usage of Javascript on the client side today. Many are starting down the difficult path of full blown application development in JS on the client side, going beyond having a simple rollover menu logic or presentation component. But tracking and tracing effectively means looking at the whole application, not just the front end. New Relic can be used either in development or production to diagnose hybrid Javascript/Java applications. In this session, Josh Long (Pivotal) and Ashley Puls (New Relic) will show how you can track and trace your way through today's hybrid Java web apps - resolving slow page loads, blocked threads, slow queries, etc.

This session assumes absolutely no knowledge of Apache Hadoop and will provide a complete introduction to all the major aspects of the Hadoop ecosystem of projects and tools. If you are looking to get up to speed on Hadoop, trying to work out what all the Big Data fuss is about, or just interested in brushing up your understanding of MapReduce, then this is the session for you. We will cover all the basics with detailed discussion about HDFS, MapReduce, YARN (MRv2), and a broad overview of the Hadoop ecosystem including Hive, Pig, HBase, ZooKeeper and more.

Today's solutions must provide the ability to interpret related events and understand trends that are happening right now. This session will cover some of the out of the box capabilities of Spring XD to tap into big data streams and generate metrics such as simple counters, aggregate counters, moving averages, rates of change, and histograms. Hands-on demos will show you how Spring XD uses Redis and GemFire's Continuous Query and Function Execution to incorporate real-time analytics into event-driven applications.

Speaker: Juergen Hoeller

Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/jhoeller/spring-framework-4-on-java-8

Spring has a track record of providing dedicated support for new Java generations in a timely fashion, and now it's right about time to go Java 8: With Spring Framework 4.0, we're providing in-depth support for all relevant OpenJDK 8 features, including lambda expressions, JSR-310 Date and Time, parameter name discovery, and java.util.concurrent enhancements. This talk will illustrate basic Spring Framework 4.0 concepts, and selected Java 8 features within Spring's programming model, exploring the impact on application architectures.
