Micronaut on AWS Jumpstart

In this 2-day training workshop, students learn how to use the new Micronaut Framework in concert with Amazon Web Services.



The Micronaut framework was born in the cloud age. Thus, it has many features specifically designed to simplify development in cloud environments. In this 2-day workshop, you will learn how to get the most out of AWS services in combination with Micronaut applications. 

Through a combination of lectures, live coding demonstrations, AWS interaction, and hands-on exercises, you'll learn how the various AWS services fit into your Micronaut applications and how to use them.

Technical Requirements

  • IntelliJ IDEA. During the course, the instructor will be using IntelIiJ IDEA Ultimate. Attendees should come with JDK 8 or JDK 11 and either IntelliJ IDEA Community (free, open source) or IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate (free trial available) installed on their laptops. Both versions can be downloaded at https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download
  • SDKMAN! We recommend installation of the Software Development Kit Manager (SDKMAN!) to ease changing the Java version. Download SDKMAN! at https://sdkman.io.
  • AWS. It is recommended that every attendee create a personal AWS account prior to the workshop for use during the course. You can create a free account at https://aws.amazon.com/free/.
