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.

    What is Spring? Join us as we discuss the answer to that question, and to any other Spring related questions. 

    The Spring organization and project portfolio are constantly evolving. We will begin by reviewing the history of the Spring organization and the Spring Framework. Then we will examine the current Spring project portfolio, and how those projects may be utilized in your own work and applications. 

    Lastly, we'll discuss the advantages of the relationship between Spring, Pivotal, and Cloud Foundry.

    We hope to see you there!

    In the past we tried to create robust systems via mistake prevention. Modern approaches take a different approach called resiliency. Resilient architectures enhance observability, leverage well-known resiliency patterns (like Circuit Breakers), and embrace chaos. This presentation will show you how to create resilient systems using technologies like Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, Spring Retry, Netflix Hystrix, and Chaos Engineering.

    Speaker:

    Matt Stine is a 17 year veteran of the enterprise IT industry, with eight of those years spent as a consulting solutions architect for multiple Fortune 500 companies, as well as the not-for-profit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He is the author of Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures from O’Reilly, and the host of the Software Architecture Radio podcast.

    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 is currently the product owner for Spring at Pivotal, and spends much of his time driving an active feedback loop between the Spring R&D organization and customers developing cloud-native application architectures.

    Matt has spoken at conferences ranging from JavaOne to OSCON to YOW!, is a seven-year member of 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 Java User Group.
