Webinar: Spring Boot 1.5 and Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Spring Boot and Pivotal Cloud Foundry users won’t want to miss Spring team’s Madhura Bhave and Pieter Humphrey as they tour through the Spring Boot 1.5 release.

Inspired in part by cool community open source work from codecentric.de, one of the hottest new directions that the two teams are working on is the integration of Spring Boot Actuators with Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

Attendees will be given direct linkage to product management - this is your chance to influence future integration direction! You’ll also walk away understanding all the highlights of the Spring Boot 1.5 release, including exciting improvements in Kafka and Pivotal Cloud Foundry support.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Migrating from Spring XD to Spring Data Cloud Flow

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Katie Mooney; Director, Marketing Operations, zData; Cahlen Humphreys; Big Data Solutions Architect, zData & Dillon Woods; Chief Technology Officer, zData
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/lessons-learned-migrating-from-spring-xd-to-spring-data-cloud-flow-katie-mooney-dillon-woods-cahlen-humphreys

The goal of this session is to teach companies how they can use real-time data to make predictions with Spring Cloud Data Flow, Spark 2.0 and Spark ML. It will cover how to train your model using Spark ML in Spark 2.0. Once trained we will show you how to make real-time predictions using the model and Spring Cloud Data Flow.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Reactive Kafka

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Rajini Sivaram
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/reactive-kafka

Apache Kafka is a distributed, scalable, high-throughput messaging bus. Over the last few years, Kafka has emerged as a key building block for data-intensive distributed applications. As a high performance message bus, Kafka enables the development of distributed applications using the microservices architecture.

Reactive Streams simplifies the development of asynchronous systems using non-blocking back pressure. The reactive framework enables the development of asynchronous microservices by providing a side-effect free functional API with minimal overhead that supports low latency, non-blocking end-to-end data flows.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Task Madness - Modern on demand processing

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Michael Minella,Glenn Renfro
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/task-madness-modern-on-demand-processing

The flexibility promised by cloud computing is something that hasn’t been fully available in many use cases yet. Most application models are still based on long running containers, robbing users of that very flexibility. Spring Cloud Task, a new project in the Spring portfolio provides both functional and non-functional capabilities for building short lived, cloud-native, microservices. This talk will introduce the project as well as look at example applications. Since we’re in Vegas, we’re going to put that on demand processing to good use by demonstrating how we used it to generate a March Madness NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament bracket. We’ll review how it worked, why Spring Cloud Task was the best fit for this type of application, and how we did this past March!

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Secure & Dynamic App Config at GapTech with Spring Cloud, Vault and Consul

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Nivesh Gopathi, Gap Tech
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/secure-dynamic-app-config-at-gaptech

As organizations move to audit trails over managed processes, continuous delivery with aggressive MTTR, security first doctrines and ephemeral instances, a key enabler is a platform ability for dynamic application configuration and securely bootstrapping application secrets. In this session, we will go over what the use cases for dynamic configuration and application secrets management are with some high level requirements, how we are collaboratively solving for these at enterprise scale using Spring Cloud Config, Vault and Consul and what’s coming next.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Putting a SpEL on Spinnaker: Evolving an Expression Language for Continuous Delivery

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Tomas Lin, Netflix
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/putting-a-spel-on-spinnaker-evolving-an-expression-language-for-continuous-delivery-at-netflix

Spinnaker is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform. It is used by over 90% of cloud deployments at Netflix. The Spring Expression Language (SpEL) is heavily leveraged to fully articulate and extend Spinnaker’s automated deployment pipelines. SpEL is used heavily to interact with pipeline stages and triggers for variable substitution, information retrieval and conditional evaluation. This session will walk through the evolution of Spinnaker’s use of SpEL over two years of active development. We will share the code, features and wisdom gained from helping the Netflix and open source community adopt SpEL. You should attend if you are interested in the Spinnaker platform and the continuous delivery pipelines feature, or wish to learn how to fully harness SpEL for your own tools.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Implementing Config Server and extending it

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Clint Checketts, Domo.com
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/implementing-config-server-and-extending-it

Spring Cloud Config Server is a great tool for getting your application configuration under source control. We’ll start with the quick overview of Spring’s Environment and properties and how config server enhances those, while keeping the same model.

Next we’ll discuss what concerns you need to take into account when rolling out config server like security, encryption, and location of your repositories (if using Git).

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: An Introduction to Distributed Tracing and Zipkin

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/how-to-properly-blame-things-for-causing-latency

Latency analysis is the act of blaming components for causing user perceptible delay. In today’s world of microservices, this can be tricky as requests can fan out across polyglot components and even data-centers. In many cases, the root source of latency isn’t a component, but rather a link between components.

This session will overview how to debug latency problems, using call graphs created by Zipkin. We’ll use trace zipkin itself, setting up from scratch using docker. While we’re at it, we’ll discuss how the model works, and how to safely trace production. Finally, we’ll overview the ecosystem, including tools to trace ruby, c#, java and spring boot apps.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Implementing Microservices tracing with Spring Cloud and Zipkin

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Marcin Grzejszczak, Reshmi Krishna
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/implementing-microservices-tracing-with-spring-cloud-and-zipkin

2015 was the year of microservices. It’s already common knowledge that creating distributed systems is not easy. It’s 2016 and it’s time to show how that complexity can be contained.

Service Discovery and Registry (Zookeeper / Consul / Eureka), easy request sending with client side load balancing (Feign + Ribbon), request proxying with Zuul. Everything is easy with Spring Cloud. Just add a dependency, a couple of lines of configuration and you’re ready to go.
