Abstract:
You know what nobody has ever said to me? "I wish you'd covered even more in your 45 minute 'Cloud Native Java' talk!" And I listened!

In this talk, we'll look at Spring Cloud.next to support modern microservices development, focusing on the things that really matter from Spring Boot 2.1 and Spring Cloud Greenwich:

Functions-as-a-service with Spring Cloud Function. We've got FUNCTIONS (wrapped in apps, in containers, running on servers, in datacenters) functional reactive REST endpoints (totally different meaning for "function" here, though) reactive programming with Spring Framework 5. Leverage flow control at every layer and make the most efficient use of every CPU when doing input/output. You're going to need every bit of efficiency that you can get after you've installed the patches for Spectre and Meltdown!

Kotlin. Yes, KOTLIN: you wanted Java and I'm giving it to you... in libraries that I'll use from Kotlin.

Messaging with Apache Kafka. Nothing funny here. It's just awesome.

Live on the edge with the new, reactive, rate-limiting, proxying, websocket-aware Spring Cloud Gateway

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Denny's Restaurant 1600 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City,

Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

Front-end development can be complicated. There are enough libraries and enough churn to make anyone feel lost in the shuffle. Common concerns for any modern web application include features like authentication, user content, APIs, and analytics. In this session, you will get a break-down and demo of the key features of AWS Amplify, an open-source toolchain from Amazon. Amplify abstracts away the common functionality that so many applications share and allows developers to focus on business logic – not plumbing! This session will walk through a simple application high-lighting the features and tools the library provides. This should leave you with the knowledge of "how and why" you would integrate this with your own projects. The session will use React to demonstrate the features of the library, but general front-end development experience is all that is required.

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 5:30:00 PM The Kansas City Public Library: Central Library 14 W 10th St, Kansas City, MO

Abstract:

The economics of the Cloud continues to dictate the need for radical changes to language runtimes. In this session learn about how OpenJDK with the Eclipse OpenJ9 JVM is leading the way in creating an enterprise strength, industry leading Java runtime that provides the operational characteristics most needed for Java applications running in the Cloud: efficient memory use, fast start-up, and releasing resources when idle. Whether deploying micro-services or more traditional Java applications the combination of OpenJDK with Eclipse OpenJ9 can help you reduce operational costs across the board.
