Microservices .NEXT with Spring

August 19–20
Spencer Gibb and Nate Schutta



This session will highlight Spring’s offerings in creating the next generation of distributed systems. We will talk about Spring's latest features for building state of the art microservices across various cloud providers while also being able to leverage the native features each cloud provides. We will explore the reactive and blocking stacks in projects such as Spring Framework, Spring Data, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud and how they can be used to build applications that perform optimally in the cloud while at the same time boosting developer productivity.

On Day 2, bring your questions about the presentation and join us for an open, informal discussion. No slides, no demos—just a conversation.
