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.

    ***** NOTE NEW LOCATION *****

    Microservice based architectures are not just for distributed web applications!  They are also a powerful approach for creating distributed stream and batch processing. Spring Cloud Data Flow enables you to create and orchestrate standalone executable applications that communicate over messaging middleware such as Kafka and RabbitMQ that when run together, form a distributed stream processing application. It also allows users to create and orchestrate short lived microservices like batch jobs or boot applications that perform a task and then terminate when complete. This allows you to scale, version and operationalize stream processing and task applications following microservice based patterns and practices on a variety of runtime platforms such as Cloud Foundry, Apache YARN and others.


    As a Pivotal engineer, Glenn Renfro is a core committer for Spring Cloud Task, Spring Batch and Spring Cloud Dataflow. He has 13 years experience in designing, building and delivering enterprise level applications in Java and 20 years total of software development experience.

    This is your user group. ASUG is always looking for speakers for our future meetings. Have you never presented before? Do you only want to give a short presentation? This is not a problem! We are happy to accommodate you! We want all of our members to feel free to speak about their own projects or any areas of interest. Please talk to us at a meeting or contact us through the meetup page to discuss your presentation.
