Ever wondered what is a Cloud-Native Application? Is it a microservice or a monolith? oh, it must be made for Cloud? Ever wondered how to develop a Cloud-Native Application? Come to this session to find out about what makes an application Cloud-Native and then learn how to build a Cloud-Native Application using the latest MicroProfile technologies (MicroProfile 4.0) such as Config, Fault Tolerance, Rest Client, JWT, Metrics, etc. This session finishes with a live demo on developing Cloud-Native applications using MicroProfile 4.0 running on Open Liberty and deploying them on k8s.

Slice your business into functions and events
Maciej Swiderski
Maciej Swiderski
OpenEnterprise, Independent software engineer

Various organizations started to look into serverless as a way of building business logic that can take advantage of the cloud. As it might look at first, it’s not an easy task to rely strictly on functions that represent independent logic pieces. There is a risk of losing the big picture and by that not having full control over day-to-day operations.

In this session, Maciej will walk you through an approach that allows you to rely on serverless techniques such as functions and cloud events yet still working on the higher-level representation. He will introduce you to Workflow as a Function Flow concept that builds up on top of state of the art technologies such as Microprofile, CloudEvents, and KNative Eventing to deliver a highly scalable business-oriented solution that looks like a single service but runs as a set of functions.

The audience will get an introduction equipped with a set of demonstrations of function flows to prove the ease of use and visibility of the running solution.

Survival Guide for the Java Architect in the Cloud Era
Otavio Santana

ZupInnovation, Principal Engineer

Let's be very honest, cloud computing cannot be learned in one day. There are several architectural challenges to deploying your application, such as which framework to choose, reflection or reflectionless, native or non-naive. We also have the operational challenges such as backups, CI/CD, and much more.

This presentation explains how to make some of these design choices and the tradeoffs to consider when building applications to run in a virtual cloud environment.
