Microservices made easy with MicroProfile OpenJ9 Open Liberty and OpenShift

Day 3 /  / Track 1  /  EN / Introduction to technology

Microservices, microservices, microservices! That is all Jamie hear from developers but how many of them have taken the plunge and started developing in this architecture style? When you start planning a microservice project there are many more things that need to be considered that simply was not required when creating monoliths.

This talk will talk you through a truly open source, cloud-native stack starting at the bottom with OpenShift, then onto the JVM with OpenJ9, Open Liberty as the cloud-native application server then finally MicroProfile as the Java spec for microservices.
