Prerequisite knowledge

Attendees should be familiar with Java and basic architecture concepts like ORM, messaging, and REST.

Materials or downloads needed in advance

Attendees need a laptop with JDK 8, an IDE, Docker, GitHub, and the CF CLI from run.pivotal.io installed before the tutorial.


Kenny Bastani demonstrates how to build cloud-native Java applications—designed to fully exploit a cloud platform both in the application layer, where things decompose into microservices, and at the data layer, where NoSQL offers better horizontal scaling and fitness for specific purpose.

Topics include:

  • Writing services and handling nonfunctional requirements like metrics and logging with Spring Boot
  • Scaling out safely and building fault-tolerant systems using Spring Cloud’s support for distributed systems patterns, including the circuit breaker, service registration and discovery, and centralized configuration management
  • Offloading as much operational work as possible to the platform, Cloud Foundry
