SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: gRPC 101 for Spring developers

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016
Speakers: Ray Tsang, Bret McGowen, Google
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/grpc-101-for-spring-developers
gRPC is a high performance, open source, general RPC framework that puts mobile and HTTP/2 first. gRPC is based on many years of Google’s experience in building distributed systems - it is designed to be low latency, bandwidth and CPU efficient, to create massively distributed systems that span data centers, as well as power mobile apps, real-time communications, IoT devices and APIs. It’s also interoperable between multiple languages.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Designing, Implementing, and Using Reactive APIs

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: - Ben Hale, Paul Harris, Stephane Maldini
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/designing-implementing-and-using-reactive-apis

The Java community is on the cusp of a major change in programming model. As the industry moves towards high-performance micro-service architectures, the need for a reactive programming model becomes clear. In this session, the lead developers of the Cloud Foundry Java Client will talk about what led them to choose a reactive API. Using that project as a lens, they’ll explore how they designed and implemented this API using Project Reactor and what users will expect when using a reactive API. If you are a developer looking to provide reactive APIs, this is your chance to gain the experience of team building a large, production-ready reactive library.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Spring Cloud with Consul and Vault

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Spencer Gibb
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-cloud-with-consul-and-vault

Historically it is difficult to store and configure secrets within applications. In the new age of microservices, it is also a challenge to register instances for discovery. Fortunately, Consul and Vault make securing secrets a breeze. Consul’s Service Registration mechanism makes easy work of service discovery. When combined with Spring Boot’s auto configuration we can leverage Consul and Vault by simply updating our classpath.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Advanced Spring Data REST

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Oliver Gierke
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/advanced-spring-data-rest

Spring Data REST provides a solid foundation to build domain-driven REST webservices leveraging hypermedia. It takes away the boilerplate part of the development and allows you to concentrate and easily hook code to cover more advanced scenarios, like custom state transitions. The talk is going to look into which means the library provides to easily integrate manually coded REST resources, tweak representations and work with lookup types (database backed value types) and especially focusses on the features added in recent releases.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Let's visualize your spring boot applications

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Shin Tanimoto
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/lets-visualize-your-spring-boot-applications

In the microservice era, working with tens of hundreds of services leads to difficulties getting a grasp of the application health such as error frequency, server resources, response times and throughput. It is said visualization tools can help us command a view of the whole system and detect problems in the early stages or prevent them from occurring, but the important thing is to choose proper tools and create dashboards the right way.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Spring Data and In-memory Data Management in Action

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: John Blum, Luke Shannon
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-data-and-inmemory-data-management-in-action-64852094

In this session we will be presenting and coding a live Spring Boot-based application powered by Apache Geode (a.k.a. Pivotal GemFire) running on Cloud Foundry. Attendees will learn in-memory computing and data management concepts including data access and querying using Spring Data Repositories and GemFire OQL, complex/real-time event processing with GemFire CQs, data affinity using GemFire Functions conveniently implemented and executed with Spring Data GemFire Function annotation support and finally effective testing strategies and techniques for testing highly-concurrent, distributed applications using Spring’s test framework along with JUnit, Mockito and MultithreadedTC.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Consuming Data Services with Spring Apps on Cloud Foundry

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Scott Frederick
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/consuming-data-services-with-spring-apps-on-cloud-foundry

Applications running on Cloud Foundry often need to connect to data services such as relational databases, document and data structure stores, and messaging services. Spring Cloud Connectors, Spring Boot and Cloud Foundry make it easy to connect Java and Spring applications to these types of data sources. Spring Boot and the Cloud Foundry Java Buildpack provide auto-configuration capabilities that make it possible to connect to data services with no application code changes for simple use cases, yet back away gracefully when custom configuration of connections is required.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Sneek Peek at Spring Data Cassandra

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Mark Paluch, John Blum
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/sneak-peek-at-spring-data-cassandra

Spring Data Cassandra was a community-maintained module for several years. The Spring Data team promotes the Cassandra module with the Ingalls release train to a core module. Project leads John Blum and Mark Paluch will guide you through the upcoming changes in Spring Data Cassandra and give you an impression what to expect from the upcoming version.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Introduction to Spring Data

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Greg Turnquist
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/introduction-to-spring-data

Are you still writing data queries by hand? Learn how Spring Data gives you the tools to leap over that hurdle and dive into solving problems. Feeling locked into your relational database due to having written gobs of SQL operations? In this live coding session, see how Spring Data provides the means to reduce that risk and give you the means to branch into other data stores. With a couple extra lines of code, you can even have a RESTful interface in no time flat.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Managing secrets at scale

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Mark Paluch
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/managing-secrets-at-scale-64889986

Running multiple instances of microservices, deploying Docker images to Kubernetes is the current trend. But what about security? Are you encrypting passwords? Where do you store the key? How often do you rotate secrets? A modern system requires access to a multitude of secrets: database credentials, API keys for external services, credentials for service-oriented architecture communication and often much more. Traditional, manual patterns cannot keep the security bar high with dynamic deployment scenarios. Secrets should stay secret and not get distributed amongst the landscape. Come to this session to learn how to keep the security bar high while running services that require secrets. You’ll see how to securely share and manage secrets (certificates, passwords, keys) for your services using Vault and how to use it with Spring Boot.
