Microsoft and Pivotal JUG Tour with Bruno Borges & Jakub Pilimon

Bruno Borges (@brunoborges) from Microsoft and Jakub Pilimon (@jakobpilimon) from Pivotal are coming together for a round of cloud education followed by a round of drinks! Plus great food and swag.

Going Reactive with Spring Boot

Reactive programming offers Java developers a way to build message-driven, elastic, resilient, and responsive services...yet many Java developers don't know where to begin. The Reactive Streams initiative provides a baseline and Project Reactor provides a great way to become immediately productive, leveraging reactive capabilities from end to end. Whether you're coming from a Spring MVC environment or a functional perspective, Reactor empowers you to spin up fully reactive Spring Boot 2 applications quickly and efficiently.

Taking Spring Apps for a Spin on Microsoft Azure Cloud

Found your app built and ready for deployment? It’s time to take them for a spin! Whether you pack and deploy as a Docker container, standalone or on Kubernetes, you will learn and see first-hand what open source tools and services are available for bringing your apps to the Cloud with ease and full DevOps pipeline. This talk will bring you up to speed with current best practices for Cloud Native deployment on Azure, and upcoming features.
