If sold out, join wait list - our sponsors hold several guest seats ;)

On Thursday March 30th, we're privileged to welcome back Tom Peck, who will present lagom, Lightbend's newest member of their open source family.

Tom Peck @tomp3y is a a long-term Scala enthusiast, software engineer, tech lead, architect, geek and teacher. He currently works at Lightbend, and was previously developing at EA and McLaren.

He lives just outside of London in the UK with his wife and two kids and when not building software he enjoys building stuff out of wood instead.


lagom - The Opinionated Framework for Java Developers

lagom is powerful, opinionated and here to help you break apart your monolith.

According to Lightbend's Kathleen Hayes, “What we observed was that while many companies had unlimited engineering resources and talent, the far greater pool of Java developers needed a more opinionated framework — specifically for Java — that enabled the construction of microservices built to run and scale on the JVM.”

In Tom's presentation, which you can be assured will also be powerful and opinionated, you will learn:

The limitations of a traditional, synchronous microservice architecture

How we can decouple our services for better resiliency

The beauty of a message driven architecture

How lagom can make you more productive
