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!
