2017 April Meeting

When: April 11, 2017    11:30 – 13:00

Where: StarSpace46  1141 W. Sheridan Avenue

Counselor: Ryan Hoegg

Topic: We need to talk about “Production”

Hey Java Developers,

I’ve been meaning to talk to you about something. We’ve been working together a while now, and I feel like you might not always give Production the respect it deserves. You don’t always invite it to your requirements meetings, or work with it much during development. Sometimes it feels like you just hand Production your code and move on to other things!
I’m setting up a meeting next week (April 11) to see if we can improve your working relationship.  Here’s a rough agenda. I’ll bring some background on these things, and I hope I can get some good conversation started and improve your relationship:
  • Service Discovery
  • Configuration
  • Secrets
  • Health
  • Logging
  • Monitoring
  • Telemetry
  • Capacity

2017 March Meeting — Time Change: 12:30 – 14:00

March 3rd, 2017 Comments off

When: March 14, 2017    12:30 – 14:00 (Due to Speaker’s flight arrival)

Where: StarSpace46  1141 W. Sheridan Avenue


Website: http://www.starspace46.com/

Speaker: Mark Heckler, Pivotal

Topic: Reactive Spring

Synopsis

Spring 5 is almost here! One of the most exciting introductions in this release is support for reactive programming, building on Pivotal’s Project Reactor to support message-driven, elastic, resilient, and responsive services. Spring 5 integrates an MVC-like component model adapted to support reactive processing and a new type of web endpoint, functional reactive endpoints. In this talk, we’ll dive into the net-new Netty-based web runtime and see how to integrate it with existing Spring-stack technologies, learn how to leverage powerful new testing mechanisms to make code better and life easier, and tie it all together with a live coding demo. If there’s more to your life than CRUD, you need to be there!
*********
Due to the speaker’s flight arrival being too close to our normal meeting time, we have chosen to delay the meeting by one (1) hour. Please note that the new start time is 12:30 pm.

2017 January Meeting

Speaker: Ray Tsang

Topic: gRPC 101 for Java Developers

Synopsis

gRPC is a high performance, open source, general RPC framework that puts mobile and HTTP/2 first. gRPC is based on many years of Google’s experience in building distributed systems – it is designed to be low latency, bandwidth and CPU efficient, to create massively distributed systems that span data centers, as well as power mobile apps, real-time communications, IoT devices and APIs. It’s also interoperable between multiple languages.
But beyond that fact that it’s more efficient than REST, we’ll look into how to use gRPC’s streaming API, where you can establish server-side streaming, client-side streaming, and bidirectional streaming! This allows developers to build sophisticated real-time applications with ease.
In addition to learning about gRPC and HTTP/2 concepts with code and demonstrations, we’ll also deep dive into integration with existing build systems such as Maven and Gradle, but also frameworks such as Spring Boot and RxJava.
  • Writing/using a Spring Boot starter to run gRPC server
  • Configuring projects to generate gRPC stub code
  • Integrating w/RxJava’s observable sequences, which matches very well with gRPC’s Stream Observable constructs

Message from JUG President, Jason Lee

December 20th, 2016 Comments off

Next month (January 10th, to be exact), we will have Google Developer Advocate Ray Tsang (https://twitter.com/saturnism) in town to talk about gRPC*. I saw a brief demo at JavaOne and it was awesome. This is a great opportunity for the Oklahoma City tech community, so we want to get the word out early, and, while the invitation is always implicit, we’re trying to make sure other tech groups are aware that they, too, are invited.

Another exciting change for the new year is that we now have, thanks to Techlahoma, our own Meetup group: https://www.meetup.com/okcjug/. We’ll be using this group for meeting announcements, reservations, etc. We’ll be basing our food order off of the registration numbers, so it’s really important that you all create an account and RSVP for each meeting. There are no plans to deny food to those who didn’t RSVP, of course, but getting accurate numbers ahead of time will help make sure we order the right amount of food.

I think that’s it for this year. Mark your calendar for January 10th. Go create a Meetup account. Watch for the meeting notice from Meetup and RSVP if you’re coming. And have a very merry Christmas and and a happy new year!.

* The topic hasn’t been nailed down yet. It should be either gRPC or Kubernetes. We’re still discussing. 🙂
