Come and experience for yourself first-hand how you can build cloud-native solutions quickly and efficiently with MicroProfile, an open enterprise-grade Java programming model optimized for microservices and cloud. (Watch out for a touch of Jakarta EE too!) We will cover a range of topics in a hands-on manner: - Easily develop RESTful and reactive services - Automated true-to-production testing using containers - Application considerations for cloud deployments with containers (Cloud-hosted environments will be provided for the hands-on components so no setup required!) Join us and let's go cloud native in warp speed with Java together!
Dapr is an open source, event-driven, portable runtime for building microservices. It provides powerful building blocks to make it easy for developers to build resilient microservice applications using a variety of languages and frameworks. In this session you will learn about the Dapr building blocks and how they have been applied to 'eShop on Containers'; a .NET microservices reference application. You will get a clear understanding of the benefits and the limitations of using Dapr in your microservice applications. After that, the attendees will have the change to apply Dapr in a sample application during the hands-on part of the workshop. The workshop features step-by-step instructions as well as some interesting stretch goals so you can work on this at your own pace. All materials will be made available after the workshop.
Many teams have embraced the idea of tracking DORA’s 4 Key Metrics, and are enthusiastic about using them to measure improvement, but they often lack a clear starting point - much less a path to success. The 4x4 Method provides not only that path, but the quick wins to get traction in the first hours. This session describes a winning approach to making progress with any key initiative, framed within the context of DevOps adoption and improvement. It has evolved through many iterations across several mediums and now in the age of remote-first collaboration, is finally easy to share, and easy to start. The system is collaborative and remote by default, but works equally well in a room full of people and post-its. It can even provide value as a solo investigation. It requires no specific tooling. It can be leveraged to drive both continuous improvement and innovation. The 4x4 Method focuses on 4 sequential mapping activities that build upon eachother to create clarity, alignment, confidence, and momentum. The four maps are: - Outcome maps - Value Stream maps - Dependency maps - Capability maps The 4x4 Method was created through 20 years of improvement experience. It sits upon principles, practices, and learning from Lean, Agile, Systems Thinking, Visual Learning, Collaborative Facilitation, and many other bodies of knowledge. It was created to help teams make clear and consistent progress towards their performance goals. The 4x4 Method is named not only for the 2 sets of 4 components it comprises, but because it was designed to provide a vehicle to help you navigate challenging terrain.
