19:00 - Serverless Java Challenges and Triumphs
Serverless Functions are hot, developer and corporate interest are exploding!
But let’s face it, although Java is one of the most popular programming languages in the world it isn’t the most popular language for writing functions—at least not yet. According to James Governor, “When Web Companies Grow Up They Turn into Java shops” so as functions become mainstream will Java become the dominant language for authoring functions? Can it be?
In this hands-on session, we will examine the challenges of using Java for Serverless functions and the latest features provided by the Java platform that address them. We will also dig into the open source Fn project’s unparalleled Java support (including Kotlin) which makes it possible to build, test, and scale out Java-based functions applications.
20:30 - Project Helidon: Java Libraries for Microservices
This session will introduce you to Helidon, a collection of Java libraries for building microservices and its two programming models: MicroProfile, for those wanting inversion of control and familiar with Java EE (now Jakarta EE) APIs, and Helidon Native, for those wanting a lightweight, functional model. Live-coded demos will illustrate the Helidon reactive web server, the config, and the security APIs.
David Delabassée has been in the Java space since the early days of this technology. He currently works in the Serverless Developer Relations team at Oracle where he spends most of his time on Fn Project.
Prior to this, he worked as an Evangelist in the Oracle Java EE organization and was recently involved in the initiative to transition the development of the Java EE platform to the Eclipse Foundation, aka Jakarta EE.
David is a regular speaker at conferences and user groups, large and small, local and global.
