Orquestación en Kubernetes para desarrolladores Java (29/9)

Hola!

Ya estamos de nuevo a la carga con un nuevo evento (próximo 29/9) organizado en colaboración con la comunidad Hispana! 

Desde España, e integrada con la primera conferencia Java en Galicia, el XantarJ, el grupo de usuarios de Vigo en colaboración con el CoruñaJUG y el grupo local XantarDev serán los encargados de orientar (nuestra 4a sesión del año) en el mes de Septiembre de 2018: Orquestación en Kubernetes para desarrolladores Java

Java 10 viene con muchas características necesarias para ejecutar aplicaciones JVM en Docker. El objetivo de este taller es desplegar una aplicación Java usando Docker & Kubernetes con los ajustes y límites de memoria y CPU adecuados.


En esta sesión, construiremos una imagen de Docker con una aplicación Java basada en el framework Netty. Esta aplicación tendrá un tamaño muy pequeño siguiendo las mejores prácticas de Docker y se aprovechará de Java Platform Module System (JPMS) presentado en la versión JDK 9. Desplegaremos la aplicación en Kubernetes y la escalaremos para demostrar cuán poderosa es hoy en día la JVM en conjunto con Docker y Kubernetes.

Luego expondremos las métricas de aplicaciones y JVM, que serán consumidas por Prometheus, un sistema que registra datos de series temporales (telemetría) para monitorear y alertar, y usaremos Grafana para consultar y generar métricas desde los pods de la aplicación.

Durante todo el workshop, descubriremos los errores más comunes al trabajar con Docker y la JVM y cómo evitarlos.

Únete a este evento, reserva tu plaza y haz parte de las comunidades de habla hispana!

Building voice experiences for Amazon Echo with Alexa Skills (18/9)

Hi devs! 

We are back again with another great event for this month!

Have you ever wanted to build an Alexa Skill? Now is your opportunity to join us for a half day (1/2) session in the Amazon Barcelona office on the 18th of September to learn the basics to publish your first Skill.


Alexa is the voice-based service within Amazon Echo, incorporates a set of skills, that allow users to interact with different technologies and services using natural language. Developers can also create custom Skills that can be published in the Alexa App Store and used from any device that incorporates Alexa. During this session we will talk about why we believe voice is the future of the user experience (UX), take a look at the structure of the Alexa Engine and finally demonstrate how to build a custom Alexa Skill with the Alexa Skills Kit SDK for Java and AWS Lambda. This will be the agenda of the event:

  • 14:00-14:30 Register
  • 14:30-15:00 Intro to Alexa
  • 15:00-16:00 Designing a voice interaction model
  • 16:00-16:30 Coffee-break
  • 16:30-18:00 Building the backend (with AWS Lambda & Java) 


The session will be led by Alexa Evangelists German Viscuso and Memo Doring. German works in Alexa Skills Kit Spain as Technology Evangelist and he is a fan of computers since he was 8 years old. He started his professional career as a software developer and later transitioned into developer advocacy roles. Memo is Senior Solutions Architect at Amazon Alexa and has 10 years of experience in the field of mobile technologies, serving in a variety of positions at Research In Motion, Apple and Amazon. He currently focuses on working with developers to help them successfully create new skills for Amazon Alexa.

Requirements:
  1. Basic Java programming knowledge
  2. Fully charged laptop to the event.
  3. An Amazon Developer account. You can create it here
  4. And also an AWS account. You can create it here prior to arrival if you don’t have one
    ( *please note a Credit Card is needed for registration, however no charges will be placed – no cost incurred* )
We look forward to seeing you there, and remember, seats are very limited! First come, first served !

Antora , the last iteration in the Asciidoctor ecosystem

Hi devs !!!!
We're back on stage starting the season with a new meetup next 20th of September in the Everis LivingLab !!!


Antora is the last iteration in the Asciidoctor ecosystem.

Asciidoctor has proven to be an excellent solution to write all sorts of documentation with its embedded features, extensibility and because it’s fun! "Docs as code" is no longer a new thing, and now Antora takes it a step further and offers a platform to aggregate, render and publish your documentation from different versioned repositories into ready-to-publish sites.
In this session we see how Antora can help you by simplifying your documentation pipeline, encouraging good practices and above all, ensure your documentation stays up with the quality of your code."

Speakers on this session will be :

>> Abel Salgado Romero ( @abelsromero )
Software engineer working at everis. Coming from a career focused on Content Management solutions around Java technologies has recently shifted to cloud solutions in Azure. Strong advocate for open source philosophy, and the importance of good testing and documentation. Contributes maintaining the asciidoctor-maven-plugin and lending a hand wherever he can.

>> Alex Soto ( @alexsotob )
Software engineer at Red Hat in Developers group. He is a passionate about Java world, software automation and he believes in the open source software model.

Simon Ritter on tour! JDK 9, 10, 11 & Beyond: Delivering New Feature in the JDK (2/5)

Hi devs!

We are really happy to announce a new talk, this time by a very well known (and great) speaker: Simon Ritter. Simon will be running a tour around Spain (with more people from Azul Systems ) during the first 2 weeks of May and Azul have contacted us in case we are interested in hosting a talk by them ... and we are, of course! ;-)

We will be the first city in their tour and this is the "crazy tour" they have planned to: 2/5 Barcelona, 3/5 Castellón, 4/5 Valencia, 7/5 Malaga, 8/5 Sevilla, 9/5 Madrid, 10/5 Vigo, 11/5 Coruña

About the talk, Simon has shared with us his proposal to talk about the new features and evolutions on the JDK. Here you can see the details:


JDK 10 was released only six-months after JDK 9, demonstrating that the new fast cadence for the OpenJDK works. Even with such a short development cycle, there were still over a hundred new features covering the language, core libraries and the JVM.


In this session we’ll take a look at how the Java platform is evolving with the introduction of big features like the Java Platform Module System (JPMS) in JDK 9, local variable type inference in JDK 10 and dynamic class file constants in JDK 11. We’ll also cover many of the smaller features that will make your life as a developer easier.

What might JDK 12, 13 and 14 include? To answer that question, we’ll explore some of the longer-term plans for Java, like project Amber, Loom and Valhalla.

Many of you may know Simon Ritter, but in case not, he is the Deputy CTO of Azul Systems. He has been in the IT business since 1984 and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Brunel University in the U.K. 

Simon joined Sun Microsystems in 1996 and started working with Java technology from JDK 1.0; he has spent time working in both Java development and consultancy. Having moved to Oracle as part of the Sun acquisition, he managed the Java Evangelism team for the core Java platform, Java for client applications and embedded Java. Now at Azul, he continues to help people understand Java as well as Azul’s JVM technologies and products. Simon has twice been awarded Java Rockstar status at JavaOne and is a Java Champion. He currently represents Azul on the JCP Executive Committee and on the Java SE Expert Group (JSR 379, 383 and 384). You can follow him on Twitter with @speakjava

Nothing more, remember to RSVPed and see you there!
