Webinar Replay: Reactive data-pipelines with Spring XD and Kafka

Speakers: Marius Bogoevici & Mark Pollack

Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/mbogoevici/reactive-data-pipelines-with-spring-xd-and-kafka

In the recent years, drastic increases in data volume as well as a greater demand for low latency have led to a radical shift in business requirements and application development methods. In response to these demands, frameworks such as RxJava and high throughput messaging systems such as Kafka have emerged as key building blocks. However, integrating technologies is never easy and Spring XD provides a solution. Through its development model and runtime, Spring XD makes it easy to develop highly scalable data pipelines, and lets you focus on writing and testing business logic vs. integrating and scaling a big data stack. Come and see how easy this can be in this webinar, where we will demonstrate how to build highly scalable data pipelines with RxJava and Kafka, using Spring XD as a platform.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Philosophical Architecture in Grails

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: David Dawson, Simplicity Itself

G&G Special Topics

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/s2gx-philosophicalarchitecture

Software development is hard. Life is hard. We try to keep up with a changing world, and it's hard. Where though, does the problem lie? In this talk, David, CEO at Simplicity Itself, will describe a different way of approaching the problem of software development, a different way of trying to keep up with a changing world. This is not a soft talk, all opinions are backed up by cold hard code in a running Grails application, showing how a change in the way you think can radically change your software.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Groovy Vampires: Combining Groovy, REST, NoSQL, and more

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Kenneth Kousen

G&G Special Topics

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/groovy-vampires

If a book as horrible as Twilight can sell millions of copies and be made into an even worse movie, how many copies can a book with Groovy vampires sell? (Spoiler: Not as many.) Yes, this topic may be silly, but the technologies used (Groovy, Ratpack, MongoDB, Grails, REST) are (un)deadly serious.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Grails Plugin Testing Strategies

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Baruch Sadogursky, JFrog

Slides: No slides, Baruch is 100% demo, baby

G&G Special Topics

Maintaining Grails plugins can be a real challenge given the high expectations and demands. Apart from supporting many users, you're tasked with making sure that the plugin is compatible with a range of Grails versions - both old and new. Your plugin must also be compatible with multiple development environments (OSs, SDKs, etc,) and play nice with the wealth of other plugins that exist in the ecosystem. How can we make sure that all these high standards are met? Testing, and lot's of it!

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: API Abstraction and API Chaining in Grails

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Owen Rubel

Essential Grails Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/api-abstraction

API abstraction is the separation of cross cutting concerns related to the api to better enable externalization to architectural concerns. Not only does this enable easier externalization, synchronization and sharing of the environment with external architecture but this also enables us to reload the api configuration on the fly, have DRY'r code, easier batching, api chaining, reduced code, synchronized configuration/security, reduced throughput and much more.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Dive into Single-Page Application with RaveJS and Grails

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Fabrice Matrat

Essential Grails Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/dive-into-spa-with-grails-and-rave-js

See how this server-side guy fell in love with client-side application development when he discovered that his years of Grails experience already taught him how to be a great JavaScript developer. We'll explore how advanced architectural libraries, such as cujoJS and RaveJS, provide parallels to many of the concepts you love in Grails.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: The Future of Gradle - The Ultimate Build System

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Hans Dockter, Gradleware

More Groovy Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/the-future-of-gradle-the-ultimate-build-system

We are convinced that Gradle is already the best available enterprise build system. Yet we are far from done. We have finally the R&D bandwidth to deeply improve Gradle in the areas where it lacks. We also have the bandwidth to contribute some fundamental innovation to the domain of build and continuous delivery. All this will bring Gradle much closer to our vision of Gradle being the ultimate build system. We start by giving an overview of where Gradle is currently in the build system market when it comes to features and adoption. We will then talk about the next generation multi-platform dependency management. A dependency management that can fully capture the requirements of Android, JavaScript and the native domain as well as to improve the dependency management for the Java world. We will talk about how Gradle will dramatically improve the performance by introducing global caches and other optimizations. Finally we will talk about the new Gradle extendability model and its upcoming native and Javascript support.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replays: Writing AST Transformations - Get Practical in 90 minutes

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Baruch Sadogursky, Frederic Simon - JFrog

Core Groovy Track

Slides: none all demo

You probably know how to use AST transformations. You might although think that writing your own AST transformations is something complicated, and takes deep knowledge of academical compliers, abstract syntax tree and other neat stuff.

Webinar Replay: Smarter Service-to-Service Invocations with Spring Cloud

Speaker: Josh Long

Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/joshlong/smarter-service-to-service-invocation-with-spring-cloud

Spring Cloud 1.0 is here! It offers a powerful way to create and consume microservices. As you introduce new services, you introduce integration problems: services can be shaky, they can disappear and - as they're often exposed over HTTP - they require a bit more footwork than in-process method invocations. In this webinar, we'll focus specifically on how Spring Cloud integrates service registration (e.g.: Eureka, Consul, or Zookeeper), declarative REST clients (with Netflix's Feign), reactive programming and the circuit breaker pattern with Hystrix to support easy, robust service-to-service invocations.

Webinar: A Comprehensive Spring Showcase: Personal Cloud Storage Application

Speaker: Erdem Gunay, Turkcell

Turkcell launched a personal cloud storage service few years ago. Adding new business features was costly in terms of time and budget on the legacy solution. The user experience needed to be improved. Finally, it was decided to build a new solution where Spring Boot and Spring Framework projects play crucial role as the backbone. The project was completed just in 6 months starting from scratch. The solution was built on top of Spring Boot and many Spring IO Platform projects, allowing the development team focus on business logic instead of configuration & integration details. The project has been divided into deployable modules (API, backend, migration, test automation) accessing micro services that are responsible for one task only. Join Erdem for a review of the migration effort and new architecture - all enabled by Spring Boot.
