Java's way into the cloud
With Marius Hilleke
About the talk
For quite a while now one of the new good ways to run applications seems to be the cloud. Still there is Java, next to other interesting languages, that seem to pop up like e.g. Kotlin. And a lot of companies still use Java for their applications. Some of those applications are run on-premise servers, which are owned by companies themselves. But since they see the big advantages of using a cloud-environment for their applications they want to build either new services that are ready for such an environment. Sometimes they even want to make existing services suitable for cloud-provider's environments. Therefore different tools exist and one, that seems to be quite known, is Docker. This meetup should be about the why and the how we put our Java application into a Docker-Container.
About our speaker
Marius started with a Java Traineeship and was afterwards involved in the development of fullstack-applications. There mainly using Spring as the framework that helps building Java-applications, Angular and recently more React as frameworks for the frontend-development. Next to that he was working with CI/CD tools like the Java-based Jenkins or the Gitlab-CI to build reliable pipelines for the applications, that are able to deploy a production-ready application for each commit. Recently he worked on several infrastructure-topics, as well, namingly building and configuring the infrastructure on AWS as a provider using terraform as InfrastructureAsCode-tooling.
