2017 January Meeting

January 5th, 2017 Comments off

When: January 10, 2017    11:30 – 13:00

Where: StarSpace46  1141 W. Sheridan Avenue


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

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. 🙂

2016 November Meeting

***** NOTICE: NEW LOCATION  *****

When: November 8, 2016    11:30 – 13:00

Where: StarSpace46  1141 W. Sheridan Avenue


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

Speaker: Ryan Hoegg

Topic: Microservices and Me

Those of us involved with software systems have probably been hearing and reading about microservice architecture more and more. We’ll explore why that is, what benefits this approach offers, and how to go about designing and building systems this way. We’ll touch on promise theory, service discovery, handling failure, and disposable software.
This talk is meant for humans who work together to try to get computers to do useful things.  That includes java developers.

We thank Techlahoma for generously providing the food and drink, and to StarSpace46 for providing the facility.
