August 2022 - IBM's Grace Jansen
IBM's Developer Advocate and Java Champion, Grace Jansen visited the Dublin Java User Group to give 'hands-on' help with open-source technologies and tools (including MicroProfile, Jakarta EE, Open Liberty, OpenJ9, and more!) for the 15 factors needed to build cloud native applications.
19:00 Thriving in the cloud: Venturing Beyond the 12 Factors Enabling applications to really thrive (and not just survive) in cloud environments can be challenging. The original 12 factor app methodology helped to lay out some of the key characteristics needed for cloud-native applications... but... as our cloud infrastructure and tooling has progressed, so too have these factors.
In this 2 hour interactive workshop Grace and her colleague Jamie Coleman dived into the extended and updated 15 factors needed to build cloud native applications that are able to thrive in this environment with open-source technologies and tools (including MicroProfile, Jakarta EE, Open Liberty, OpenJ9, and more!) that help achieve this.
