Event Schedule:

19:00 – 19:10 Welcome by our host Kido Koenig
19:10 – 20:00 Wietse Smid | Service Mesh in Java microservices with Consul
20:00 – 21:00 Josh Long | The RSocket Revolution


The RSocket Revolution

RSocket is here! RSocket is a binary, reactive, and operations-friendly wire protocol that integrates that builds on top of Project Reactor. Engineers originally developed RSocket at Netflix. Then they moved to Facebook. RSocket was the fledgling project for the Reactive Foundation, of which the spring team, Lightbend, Facebook, Alibaba, and others are founding members. RSocket represents the operational insight of some of the largest organizations in the world. And, it readily integrates with Spring. Join me, Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) in this rapid, reactive ride on the RSocket rocket, and we’ll look at the rich Spring support for RSocket and its use in building faster, more robust and more scalable services.

  • How to build RSocket-based controllers in Spring Framework
  • Build RSocket clients using the RSocketRequester
  • How to use the rsc client
  • Build processing pipelines using Spring Integration
  • Secure our services with Spring Security
  • Introduce bidirectional communication
  • and more!

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.
