SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Lattice: A Cloud-Native Platform for Your Spring Applications

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Matt Stine
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/lattice-a-cloud-native-platform-for-your-spring-applications
Lattice is a cloud-native application platform that enables you to run your applications in containers like Docker, on your local machine via Vagrant. Lattice includes features like:
Cluster scheduling
HTTP load balancing
Log aggregation
Health management
Lattice does this by packaging a subset of the components found in the Cloud Foundry elastic runtime. The result is an open, single-tenant environment suitable for rapid application development, similar to Kubernetes and Mesos Applications developed using Lattice should migrate unchanged to full Cloud Foundry deployments.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Getting Started with Spring Cloud

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Dr. Dave Syer, Josh Long

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/getting-started-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), declarative REST clients (with Netflix’s Feign), reactive programming and the circuit breaker pattern with Hystrix to support easy, robust service-to-service invocations, and messaging microservices with Spring Cloud Stream. This is a deep dive on how to make connect and consume microservices, and is a natural next step after the introduction to building microservices with Spring Boot.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Modern Frontend Engineering

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Dustin Whittle, AppDynamics

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/modern-frontend-engineering

The web has evolved tremendously in the last decade. In this talk we will dive into the latest tools and techniques that make for a modern foundation for frontend engineering. We will start with bootstrapping with Yeoman, move into managing dependencies with bower, and finally how to automate best practices with Grunt and Gulp. We will discuss the pros and cons of modern ui toolkits like Zurb, Bootstrap, and SemanticUI and modern javascript frameworks like React, Angular, and Ember. We will highlight the latest in css frameworks, javascript frameworks, and why you should choose the right toolset for complex app or a single page app. When you leave this session you will be prepared to launch a modern web application in 2015.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Building and Tuning High Performance Java Platforms

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Emad Benjamin, VMWare

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/building-and-tuning-high-performance-java-platforms

In a world of the cloud, virtualization, containerization, microservices and nanoservices we talk about scaling up, scaling out, and decoupling our systems, but typically miss scaling down to an embedded platform.
At the same time that we have moved away from heavy monolithic web containers, we’ve seen a rise of powerful low cost embedded Linux devices such as the RaspberryPi.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Bringing javax.cache'ing to your application

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Alex Snaps, Chris Dennis - Terracotta / Software AG

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/bringing-javaxcacheing-to-your-app

10 years in the making and finally JSR-107 has been finalized. We now have a standardized Caching API for the Java Platform. And that’s all ready for you to use in your Spring apps. But what does it really enable for you? What’s with these optional features? No transaction support? How do you efficiently make use of this new API to solve real world problems in your application today? We’ll look into how get you best started introducing caching into your Spring application to solve real world problems. And, as we explore the javax.cache API in much more details, we’ll see how to push the specifications to its limits and… beyond. Whether implicitly through frameworks (like Spring and Hibernate), or explicitly (cache-aside, cache-through, …). And how to abstract yourself from a given provider when you require more than what the specifications cover (e.g. transactional caches). We’ll also cover some implementer specifics you might want to account for when choosing an implementation, especially if you plan to push the spec to the extreme, like when going distributed and caching terabytes of data.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Restful Grails 3

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Jeff Brown, OCI Web

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/restful-grails3

Grails 3 includes a lot of features and functionality related to building RESTful services. These include an entirely new and more flexibile data binding system, runtime and compile time metaprogramming which greatly reduce the amount of code required in your RESTful services, a rich set of content negotiation tools and more.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Microservice Architecture with Grails

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Jeff Brown, OCI Web

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/microservice-architecture-with-grails-3

For some web applications it does not make sense to have 1 monolithing process which handles all of the requirements of the application. More and more often Grails is showing up in microservice architectures where instead of building 1 monolithing web application which is responsible for all of the pieces of the application puzzle, microservice applications are being assembled which collectively solve the requirements of the larger application. Grails is very well suited for this type of architecture. A microservice based architecture can result in applications which are easier to build, easier to test, easier to extend and are easier to adapt to changing business requirements.
