Cloud Native Java, Redux

“It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” -W. Edwards Deming

Work takes time to flow through an organization and ultimately be deployed to production where it captures value. It’s critical to reduce time-to-production. Software – for many organizations and industries – is a competitive advantage.

Organizations break their larger software ambitions into smaller, independently deployable, feature -centric batches of work – microservices. In order to reduce the round-trip between stations of work, organizations collapse or consolidate as much of them as possible and automate the rest; developers and operations beget “devops,” cloud-based services and platforms automate operations work and break down the need for ITIL tickets and change management boards.

But velocity, for velocity’s sake, is dangerous. Microservices invite architectural complexity that few are prepared to address. In this talk, we’ll look at how high performance organizations like Ticketmaster, Alibaba, and Netflix make short work of that complexity with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud.

Service Mesh in Java microservices with Consul

In this session we look at service meshes, what they are, and when they are useful in managing your microservices environment. We will go on a quick tour through Consul and a number of its various capabilities. In a small demo, we will look at a few ways that we can use Consul to provide that service mesh and to keep our microservices connected. As well as other uses that Consul can provide, such as the key/value store.

.BLD() Community

At Capgemini, we love to share our knowledge inside and outside the organization! From there, the .BLD() – build – community emerged, consisting of a group of Capgemini software experts, friends and others with a passion for tech! Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month, we organize the .BLD() Tech Talks live on Youtube & Twitch. Are you curious about the upcoming Tech Talks? Check out our Meetup page!
