10:00am–5:30pm Monday, 07/13/2020
Location: Portland 252

To attend, participants must be registered for a Training Pass. Please note: 2-Day Training passholders have access to TWO 1-day training courses, ONE on Monday and ONE on Tuesday. 1-Day Training passholders have access to ONE 1-day training course on Monday OR Tuesday.

Jeff Scott Brown teaches you to use the new Micronaut framework in concert with Google Cloud Platform services, such as Cloud SQL, Kubernetes, and Google’s Instance Metadata Server. You'll learn to easily build fast, lightweight JVM microservices and deploy them to Google Cloud.

What you'll learn, and how you can apply it

  • Learn how to build JVM microservices and deploy them to GCP, including controllers, security, web sockets, and more

Who is this presentation for?

  • You're a JVM developer who wants to build microservice applications




  • Familiarity with Java

Hardware and/or installation requirements:

  • A laptop

GCP 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.

Jeff Scott Brown leads a deep dive into Micronaut’s high-productivity capabilities and offers 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. You may keep the hardware after completing the course.
