MicroProfile, Jakarta EE, and Open Liberty at DevNexus 2022
DevNexus, the longest-running and largest Java Conference in the USA will be happening this year in Atlanta, GA, from April 12-14. As in-person conferences make a comeback in 2022, this will be a great opportunity to re-connect with the Java community.
And of course, members of the Open Liberty team will be on-site hosting multiple sessions and running demonstrations and labs in the IBM booth. If you’re also going to be there, deciding which of the great talks to see can be a bit of a challenge. So we’ve put together a helpful summary of the sessions on MicroProfile, Jakarta EE and Open Liberty.
Talks at DevNexus 2022
A selection of Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, and Open Liberty talks on Wednesday and Thursday:
- Wednesday 13th
Exploring Stateful Microservices in the Cloud Native World
Open Liberty’s Grace Jansen and Chicago JUG’s Mary Grygleski discuss how to handle persisting data with containerized microservices in a Cloud Native world.
Mother Nature vs Java - the security face off
Java Evangelist Steve Poole and Open Liberty’s Grace Jansen explore where software and biology overlap when it comes to security, and lessons we can learn from nature to improve our own application security.
Simple tweaks to get the most out of your JVM
Open Liberty’s Jamie Coleman will go through all the different JVM options and give you some easy and simple advice on how to get the most out of your JVM to save not only money but also energy on the cloud.
Landscape of MicroProfile and Jakarta EE Tools
Open Liberty’s YK Chang and Kathryn Kodama will examine the tools that are available to make your life easier as you code MicroProfile and Jakarta EE-based applications. These tools help developers throughout the development lifecycle, from creating a new application, working with compatible runtimes and your favourite editor, to testing your application.
Using byte-code analysis to modernize your Java EE applications
Open Liberty’s Cindy High will demonstrate how to analyze your Java EE applications using a simple command-line tool that will provide reports on your application structure and detailed analysis of potential issues when moving to a new Java SE or EE level or to cloud environments.
- Thursday 14th
MicroProfile - The Current and The Future
Java Champion Emily Jiang is going to bring you up to date with the latest MicroProfile release and then briefly discuss the future road map for MicroProfile. Come along to listen in or ask questions.
All conference attendees are invited to join us at the IBM booth where you can check out our new Space Rover demo, challenge yourself with one or more Quick Labs, and get some great SWAG. IBMers will also be available at the Eclipse Foundation booth.
We’d love to see you at these key activities!
- Jakarta EE Reception - Tuesday, April 12 @ 17:00 to 19:30 (room #412)
Join the Jakarta EE community for some great discussions on the ever-changing landscape in enterprise Java and the future of cloud-native innovation that Jakarta EE represents, while enjoying drinks and snacks on IBM.
- Book Signing - Wednesday, April 13 @ 15:20 (IBM Booth)
Join IBMer, Java Champion, and co-author of a new eBook, “Practical cloud-native Java development with MicroProfile”, Emily Jiang as she signs and gives away copies of this popular publication.
- Open Liberty Space Rover Challenge - Daily at the IBM Booth
Navigate the planets and get your rover safely to your destination in the stars. Take control of a spaceship and use hand signals to direct its flight from planet to planet. Climb the rankings on your way to become top cadet in Star Academy. Our Space Rover Challenge leverages a variety of technologies, including hardware, and modern Java technology. While you’re with us, ask our developers about the underlying technologies they’ve used to create the demo, including Open Liberty, also known as “the most flexible server runtime in the cosmos”, Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, and OpenJ9.
