The Future of Cloud-Native Applications

June 4, 2019Los Angeles, CAKimpton Hotel Palomar Los Angeles - Beverly Hills

Cloud-native describes a way of building applications on a cloud platform to iteratively discover and deliver business value. We now have access to a lot of similar technology that the large internet companies pioneered and used to their advantage to dominate their respective markets. What challenges arise when we start building applications to take advantage of this new technology?

In this mini-conference, we'll cover what it means to build applications with microservices, how cloud-native integration and concepts like service mesh have evolved to solve some of those problems, and how Java can deliver the fast development cycles, and small startup times and memory footprint required for the cloud-native and Serverless/FaaS era with Quarkus.

You'll hear about these topics from industry experts Edson Yanaga, our Director of Developer Experience, and Marius Bogoevici, Principal Specialist Solution Architect.

Attendees should come away from this mini-conference with the following:

  • Understanding of what cloud-native means and how to use it to influence positive business outcomes
  • How integration has evolved to create, connect and manage cloud-native APIs
  • How service-mesh technology like Istio can solve the challenges introduced with cloud-native applications
  • How Quarkus, the Cloud-Native and Kubernetes-Native platform, is changing the way that we develop Microservices, and Function as a Service/Serverless workloads

These talks will be of value for developers, architects, operators, platform directors, and technology leaders.

After the presentations, please stay and join Yanaga, Bogoevici, and your peers for lunch and networking. All attendees will also receive a copy of Christian Posta and Burr Sutter's new book: Introducing Istio Service Mesh for Microservices..
