Better Software is Better than Worse Software

DaShaun Carter, Senior Platform Architect, Pivotal

Read more
“Digital transformation” seems like idle business fantasy. But, it’s a real strategy used by the US Air Force, Air France KLM, Liberty Mutual, DBS Bank, and others to out-innovate competition & delight people. To kick-off the day, Dashaun will go over how Pivotal customers like these are improving their software, how Pivotal Cloud Foundry lays the foundation for better software helps, and how you can be a part of making the world a better place with better software.

The Reactive Revolution

Josh Long, Spring Developer Advocate, Pivotal

Read more
The reactive revolution continues. For as much as we've been talking about reactive programming in Spring for the last few years the journey has only just begun. Join Josh Long, and we'll take our reactive applications further, looking at how to build microservices for cloud platforms like PAS (Cloud Foundry) and PKS (Kubernetes). Some of the things we may cover include: - reactive NoSQL data access - reactive SQL data access with R2DBC - orchestration and reliability patterns like client-side loadbalancing, circuit breakers, and hedging - messaging and service integration with Apache Kafka or RSocket - API gateways with Spring Cloud Gateway and patterns like rate limiting - API adapters - serverless programming with Spring Cloud Function and project Riff - reactive authentication and authorization with Spring Security.

Mastering Spring Boot's Actuator

Madhura Bhave, Spring Developer, Pivotal

Read more
Spring Boot's Actuator provides a powerful set of production-ready features that have been recently updated for Spring Boot 2.0 and 2.1. In this talk we'll look in detail at the Actuator, focusing on the new features including the new endpoint infrastructure that introduces support for Jersey and Web Flux alongside the existing support for Spring MVC. You'll leave with a detailed understanding of the Actuator and armed with the knowledge required to develop your own endpoints

Bootiful Reactive Testing

Mario Gray, Principal Technologist, Pivotal

Read more
Join us for an exploration of testing a reactive Spring Boot 2.x application. Test driven development gives us the confidence necessary to improve our code faster, safely. But how do you test components and services, as well as integrations across distributed systems, while maintaining fast feedback loops, and how do you do all of this within the context of reactive Java? In this talk, we'll look at how to test imperative components, reactive data flows, and mocks. We’ll examine how to take advantage of test slices, and how to test web applications. We'll look at how to ensure that API producers and consumers work well together using consumer driven contract testing without sacrificing the testing pyramid for end-to-end integration tests. And we’ll do it all within the context of reactive programming.

Pivotal Conversations

Read more
Pivotal Conversations is loosely based in the open space meeting format, meaning it is based on (un)common sense of what people do naturally in productive meetings. Pivotal Conversations is a simple meeting format where attendees will break into smaller groups and have candid conversations about topics that our speakers have composed, based on the talks they gave earlier in the day. Each 45-minute session will have a casual format where attendees can feel comfortable discussing anything they want to know more about. Although these conversations are facilitated by our speakers, attendees should really be the ones leading the conversations.

Thinking Architecturally

Nate Schutta, Solution Architect, Pivotal

Read more
Rich Hickey once said programmers know the benefits of everything and the trade offs of nothing...an approach that can lead a project down a path of frustrated developers and unhappy customers. As architects though, we must consider the trade offs of every new library, language, pattern or approach and quickly make decisions often with incomplete information. How should we think about the inevitable technology choices we have to make on a project? How do we balance competing agendas? How do we keep our team happy and excited without chasing every new thing that someone finds on the inner webs? As architects it is our responsibility to effectively guide our teams on the technology journey. In this talk I will outline the importance of trade offs, how we can analyze new technologies and how we can effectively capture the inevitable architectural decisions we will make. I will also explore the value of fitness functions as a way of ensuring the decisions we make are actually reflected in the code base.

Secure Credential Management with CredHub

DaShaun Carter, Senior Platform Architect, Pivotal

Read more
Managing secrets and ensuring leaking secrets do not threaten your business can be a costly exercise. In this session we will look at the Pivotal Cloud Foundry Credhub project which was designed to help users enforce security best practices for credential management from your platform down to your microservices. We will take you through the primary steps needed to integrate an application with CredHub and show you how to store, retrieve and rotate (generate) new secrets for your applications.

Kube Your Enthusiasm

Tyler Britten, Senior Principal Technologist, Pivotal

Read more
Part talk, part demo, part live coding. We will take the audience through the basics of Kubernetes and then turn to the audience to go go down a Kube Your Own Adventure exploration of a number of different Kubernetes related topics such as Spring Cloud Kubernetes, Helm, Spinnaker, Knative, Operators, and so much more!

Spring Cloud Gateway

Ryan Baxter, Software Engineer, Pivotal

Read more
Building upon Project Reactor, Spring WebFlux, and Spring Boot 2.0, Spring Cloud Gateway offers Spring Cloud users an impressive set of features and functionality for cloud native applications. In comparison to Zuul from Spring Cloud Netflix, Spring Cloud Gateway provides a much more flexible API for configuring the edge service of your applications. In addition, functionality such as rate limiting, and websocket routing are supported out of the box. During this rapid fire 30 minute session we will introduce Spring Cloud Gateway and demonstrate its potential impact on your cloud applications.

Spring Cloud Kubernetes

Ryan Baxter, Software Engineer, Pivotal

Read more
Kubernetes has become the defacto Container-As-A-Service provider in the industry. See how Spring Cloud Kubernetes integrates with Config Maps and Secrets for providing secure configuration to Spring Boot applications in a seamless manner. See also how integration work with the Spring Cloud DiscoveryClient and when it would be useful to use it. We will also talk about integration with Spring Cloud Sleuth and Zipkin for distributed tracing. See how Spring Cloud Gateway can perform as a Kubernetes ingress router.

Drinking from the Stream: How to Use Messaging Platforms for Scalability & Performance

Mark Heckler, Spring Developer Advocate, Pivotal

Read more
Most mission-critical systems have distributed elements or are entirely distributed, resulting in a number of challenges: performance, scalability, reliability, resilience...the eight fallacies of distributed computing are alive and well! Messaging platforms are often used to solve these problems and increase the "ilities", but they don't come without a few complexities of their own. Come to this session to learn how to leverage open source solutions like Spring Cloud Stream, RabbitMQ, & Apache Kafka to maximize your distributed systems' capabilities while minimizing complexity. All examples will be coded *live & in real-time*!

Spring Security 5.1 by Example

Josh Cummings, Spring Security Committer, Pivotal

Read more
In this talk we will be taking an insecure, set of microservices and gradually apply Spring Security 5.1 to it. Along the way we will highlight the new features in Spring Security 5.1 including password storage migrations, new OAuth2 Client and Resource Server Support, and more. Whether you are new to Spring Security or a seasoned Spring Security user, this presentation is a must.
