Microservices with Docker and Kubernetes: Best Practices for Java Developers

Day 1 – 10th Dec 13:30-14:20 Main Hall #Influencers Expert

This session is for Java developers and architects interested in developing microservices. It starts with the high-level understanding and fundamental prerequisites that should be in place to be successful with a microservice architecture. Unfortunately, just using new technology doesn’t magically solve distributed systems’ problems. The presentation takes a look at some of the forces involved and what successful companies have done to make microservices work for them, including culture, organizational structure, and market pressures. Then it takes a deep dive into a few Java frameworks for implementing microservices. The accompanying source code repository can be found on GitHub.
