2 Days: Modern Development with Java 8

Richard Warburton, Monotonic Ltd

Raoul-Gabriel Urma, University of Cambridge

Overview

Java 8 isn't your parent's Java anymore. It is the largest update to Java in its history. It's a very exciting time. Some of the best ideas from functional programming are migrating their way into Java 8. This means easier to read, more flexible code that scales to multicore. At the end of this course, you will be ready to use Java 8 on your day job and be familiar with the cutting edge programming approaches which allow you to write more flexible and concise code.

2 Days: Architecting for Continuous Delivery and Zero Downtime

Axel Fontaine, Boxfuse GmbH

Continuous Delivery is all the hype these days. This training makes it a reality. We start with an overview of what Continuous Delivery is and how it can help you. We then quickly dive into the details. You will learn what it takes to architect a Java application so that it can be delivered continuously into production, with code, configuration and database delta, multiple times a day, with zero downtime.

Buckle up! This class is intensive and hands-on. You build an entire Java web app to the point where it deploys continuously, with zero downtime. We tackle the hard problems with a battle-tested approach you will be able to apply immediately.
