Micronaut on GCP Jumpstart

Micronaut on GCP Jumpstart

In this 12-hour training workshop, students learn how to use the Micronaut® framework in concert with Google Cloud Platform services, such as Cloud SQL, Kubernetes, and Google’s Instance Metadata Server.


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.

The Micronaut framework is a modern, JVM-based, full-stack toolkit 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 12-hour deep-dive workshop explores the Micronaut framework'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 GCP, and get the whole architecture wired together with minimal effort.

Complimentary CLOUD CREDITS

Google will donate GCP account credits, which may be applied to participants' GCP accounts to cover runtime costs for their personal runtime environments.

Intended Audience

Although everyone is welcome, this course is best suited for JVM developers who want to build microservice applications. Participants should be comfortable with Java as a programming language.


The following topics are covered in this workshop:

  • Controllers
  • Compile time dependency injection
  • Application configuration
  • HTTP client
  • Service discovery
  • Testing
  • Bidirectional JSON
  • Server events
  • Databases
  • Management endpoints
  • Aspect-oriented programming
  • Static-file resolution
  • Polyglot Micronaut
  • Deploying to GCP
  • Micronaut Data with Google Cloud SQL


To get the most out of this course, we recommend participants have beginner to intermediate proficiency with the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and a high-level understanding of how web applications and microservices work in general. No particular expertise with Apache Groovy or the Micronaut framework is required.
