Micronaut from IoT to GCP

In this 2-day training experience, 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.


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 deep-dive 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.


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

Additionally, 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.
