My role at Pivotal is focused on app and infra developers that use Java, Spring and Cloud Foundry. Java middleware has been my focus for nearly two decades, working in development, marketing, sales, and developer relations at BEA, Oracle, VMWare and Pivotal. Talk to me about Cloud Native applications!
Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development move swiftly and enjoyable. It's ideally suited for building microservices and distributed systems and makes streamlining devops practices simple. Join Pieter Humphrey from the Spring Team or a look at what Spring Boot is, why it's turning heads, why you should consider it for your next application (REST, web, batch, big-data, integration, whatever!) and how to get started.
