There's a new Atlanta Spring User Group. They've had two meetings so far, and a lot of members right off the bat. "What's Spring?" you ask. It's a Java/J2EE application platform, released under the Apache 2.0 license.You may have hear of some of its parts: Groovy and Grails. They seem to be closely tied to VMWare.
Building Distributed Systems with Netflix OSS and Spring Cloud
Atlanta Spring User Group
With the advent of microservice and cloud-native application architectures, building distributed systems is becoming increasingly common for the enterprise Java developer. Fortunately many of the innovators in the space, including Twitter, LinkedIn, and Netflix, have embraced the JVM as they’ve built increasingly complex systems, with Netflix open-sourcing much of its toolkit for constructing these systems at NetflixOSS.
Spring Cloud provides tools for developers to quickly build some of the common patterns in distributed systems. Many of these patterns are provided via wrapping the battle-tested components found at NetflixOSS.
Coordination of distributed systems leads to boiler plate patterns, and using Spring Cloud developers can quickly stand up services and applications that implement those patterns. They will work well in any distributed environment, including the developer's own laptop, bare metal data centres, and managed platforms such as Cloud Foundry.
Patterns and implementations we’ll examine include:
• configuration management
• service discovery
• circuit breakers
• intelligent routing
• control bus
• one-time tokens
• global locks
• leadership election
• distributed sessions
• cluster state
Matt Stine is a Cloud Foundry Platform Engineer at Pivotal. He is a 15 year veteran of the enterprise IT industry, with experience spanning numerous business domains.
Matt is obsessed with the idea that enterprise IT “doesn’t have to suck,” and spends much of his time thinking about lean/agile software development methodologies, DevOps, architectural principles/patterns/practices, and programming paradigms, in an attempt to find the perfect storm of techniques that will allow corporate IT departments to not only function like startup companies, but also create software that delights users while maintaining a high degree of conceptual integrity. He currently specializes in helping customers achieve success with Platform as a Service (PaaS) using Cloud Foundry and BOSH.
Matt has spoken at conferences ranging from JavaOne to OSCON, is a regular speaker on the “No Fluff Just Stuff tour, and serves as Technical Editor of “NFJS the Magazine. Matt is also the founder and past president of the Memphis/Mid-South Java User Group.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM, allowing members time to network, arrive and enjoy pizza. At 7 PM, ASUG will give an introductory welcome, and will be shortly followed by the presentation. As always, everyone has the option to head downstairs to Aja for networking and drinks after the meeting.
Parking at the One Alliance Center is $12 max. If you wish to go to Aja after the meeting they will validate part of your parking. If parking is a problem, some members park at Phipps Plaza for free and walk over. ASUG does NOT validate parking.
