Micronaut Deep Dive at GR8Conf US 2018

In this 2-day, hands-on workshop, we will take a deep dive into Micronaut. Through lectures, real-world examples, and lab exercises, developers will be armed with everything they need to immediately start building applications with the framework.

Micronaut Deep Dive

Date & Time: July 23 – 24, 2018  |   9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. CT

Location: University of St. Thomas - Schulze Hall | 46 S 11th St. | Minneapolis, MN 55403 (Map)

More Details Coming Soon!


Micronaut is a modern, JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice applications.

Micronaut embraces some of the same ideas Grails uses to prioritize developer productivity and code simplicity, then applies those ideas to a framework specifically designed to overcome the challenges associated with microservice architectures.


Although everyone is welcome, this workshop is best suited for JVM developers who want to build microservice applications. 

Participants should be comfortable with Java as a programming language. An understanding of the Grails framework is also helpful, but no particular proficiency with Grails is required. 

This training course will take place prior to GR8Conf US. Attendees of GR8Conf US are encouraged to enroll in this course through our bundled ticket offering
