Spring Boot: From Zero to Production in 90 minutes with Craig Walls
April 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
In this example-driven presentation, we'll start with an empty directory and have an application (simple as it may be) running in a production environment, leveraging Spring and Spring Boot.
Spring Boot's primary purpose is to make Spring easier to work with. It achieves this in three ways:
* Automatic configuration : Considering what's on the runtime classpath as well as other factors, Spring Boot can automatically configure components in a Spring application context.
* Simplified dependency management : Taking advantage of transitive dependency resolution at build-time, Spring Boot offers several “starter” dependencies, focused on specific characteristics of an application, that transitively bring in libraries to enable development of those characteristics.
* Runtime insight : Spring Boot offers insight into the inner workings of a running application via REST endpoints and/or JMX MBeans to better understand what makes a running application tick.
All together, Spring Boot lets you focus on fulfilling your application's requirements without worrying about writing code that satisfies the needs of a framework.
**Speaker:** Craig Walls is an engineer with VMware, Java Champion, and the author of Spring in Action, Spring Boot in Action, and Build Talking Apps. He's a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring. When he's not slinging code, Craig is planning his next trip to Disney World or Disneyland and spending as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 1 bird and 3 dogs.
