Full-Day Workshop

Micronaut from IoT to GCP

In this deep-dive workshop, you'll learn how to use the new Micronaut Framework in concert with Google Cloud Platform services, such as Cloud SQL, Kubernetes, and Google’s Instance Metadata Server. Discover an easier way to build fast, lightweight JVM microservices and deploy them to Google Cloud.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offered by Google, is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products, such as Google Search and YouTube.

Micronaut is a modern, JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice and serverless applications, with an emphasis on developer productivity and code simplicity. Micronaut provides great support for simplifying the development and deployment of microservices to GCP.  

This workshop explores Micronaut's high-productivity capabilities and includes a hands-on demonstration of how to build a suite of services with the new framework, deploy them to Raspberry Pi edge devices and GCP, and get the whole architecture wired together with minimal effort.

COMPLIMENTARY HARDWARE: Each participant will receive a Raspberry Pi Zero W device and the necessary, related hardware to complete the lab exercises. Participants may keep the hardware after completing the course!

Keynote Address

Microservices, Micronaut, and Your Digital Future

The modernization of a sophisticated technology stack is a delicate balancing act that rests on understanding how any one change will affect the entire ecosystem.

Business leaders who oversee mature technology stacks are particularly confounded by the demand to make changes quickly (and correctly) while simultaneously increasing the complexity of their applications.

Microservices promise to alleviate this burden by decomposing complex applications into a set of manageable services that are much faster to develop and much easier to understand and maintain. But there are challenges associated with this type of application architecture. It is important to recognize those challenges and to understand how best to manage them.

In this talk, Jeff Scott Brown introduces Micronaut, a development framework that addresses many of these challenges, and demonstrates how this powerful new tool allows software engineers to build fast, lightweight microservices with minimal code and maximum simplicity.

Additional Breakout Sessions

Restful Grails

Grails includes a lot of features and functionality related to building RESTful services. These include a really powerful data-binding system, runtime and compile time metaprogramming, which greatly reduce the amount of code required in your RESTful services, a rich set of content negotiation tools, and more.

In this session, Grails co-founder, Jeff Scott Brown, will discuss and demonstrate many of the powerful REST features in Grails.

Micronaut For Simplifying Microservices On GCP

Google Cloud provides a powerful and highly scalable platform for delivering microservices and serverless applications, with a variety of tools to help developers make the most of the opportunities it offers. A new tool, the Micronaut framework, was designed from the ground up to simplify the architectural development and deployment of microservices, and it comes with built-in support for GCP services and hosting.

In this session, Micronaut co-founder, Jeff Scott Brown, will demonstrate in real time how to build a suite of lightweight microservices, wire them together in support of the intended architecture, and deploy the solution to GCP with minimal complexity and effort. Demonstrations will include deployment to Google App Engine Flex, as well as the recently announced Google Cloud Run serverless environment.
