What's All The Fuss About Serverless?

Dude, where's my server?! The word 'Serverless' can be a bit misleading, but this architecture style has exploded in the tech industry and offers a myriad of unique benefits. Unfortunately, real comprehension of this concept has been abstracted away just as much as the server—turning the word 'Serverless' into little more than marketing jargon. In this talk we'll define Serverless, work through a sample, discuss the benefits / compromises, go over real-world use cases, and examine the Serverless economy.

Microservices, Micronaut And Your Digital Future

The modernization of a sophisticated technology stack is a delicate balancing act that rests on understanding how any one change will affect the entire ecosystem. Business leaders who oversee mature technology stacks are particularly confounded by the demand to make changes quickly (and correctly) while simultaneously increasing the complexity of their applications. Microservices promise to alleviate this burden by decomposing complex applications into a set of manageable services that are much faster to develop and much easier to understand and maintain, but there are challenges associated with this type of application architecture. It is important to recognize the challenges and to understand how best to manage those challenges.

Launching the Micro Future: Grails and Micronaut

Micronaut is a new JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice applications. Reflection-based IoC frameworks load and cache reflection data for every single field, method, and constructor in your code; with Micronaut, your application startup time and memory consumption are not bound to the size of your codebase. The Micronaut framework shares many core values with Grails, including the enablement of code simplicity and developer productivity. Micronaut offers many additional features for a new class of applications (e.g., microservices, serverless deployments, etc.) that may not be well- suited for Grails. • Compelling aspects of the Micronaut framework include: • Sub-second startup time • Tiny processes that may run in as little as 8mb of heap • No runtime reflection • Dependency injection • Load balancing • And more! In this talk, Jeff will demonstrate how the future of Grails, GORM, and Micronaut are linked, as well as how the OCI Groovy and Grails team is taking microservice development to the next level!

Micronaut For Simplifying Microservices On GCP

Google Cloud provides a powerful and highly scalable platform for delivering microservices and serverless applications, with a variety of tools to help developers make the most of the opportunities it offers. A new tool, the Micronaut framework, was designed from the ground up to simplify the architectural development and deployment of microservices, and it comes with built-in support for GCP services and hosting. In this session, we demonstrate in real time how to build a suite of lightweight microservices, wire them together in support of the intended architecture, and deploy the solution to GCP with minimal complexity and effort. Demonstrations will include deploying to Google App Engine Flex as well as the recently announced Google Cloud Run serverless environment.
