November 4 – 8, 2019
Presented by Graeme Rocher, Grails & Micronaut Co-Founder & Project Lead
This session is for developers looking to go beyond the basics with Micronaut, a new microservices and serverless framework for Java, Kotlin, and Groovy.
Taking an extensive look at how advanced features such as dependency injection (DI), aspect-oriented programming (AOP), and ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation work, Graeme Rocher walks attendees through Micronaut’s elegant programming model. Attendees will come away with a better understanding about the motivations behind Micronaut's design.
In this session, Graeme Rocher discusses the evolution of the Java and other software platforms and frameworks over the last 10 years and the challenges in adapting them to the rapidly-evolving microservice and serverless space. Graeme demonstrates how new projects, such as Micronaut and Oracle’s GraalVM, are taking unique approaches to address issues, such as memory footprint, startup time, and cold-start performance, making Java competitive in a space where newer languages such as Go and Node.js shine.
