Building "Bootiful" Microservices with Spring Cloud (Workshop)

A session at Spring I/O 2015

Thursday 30th April, 2015

2:30pm to 4:30pm (WET)

It's 2015. Most of us get the various motivations behind
microservices. We want to be truly agile, and ship every iteration. We
want our software to map to our organization. We want independent
deployability. We want small, two pizza-box teams that control their
own technological destiny, choosing the best tools for their focused
job. We want polyglot, language-agnostic services and well-defined
module boundaries. Decomposing applications into a set of
microservices delivers all of this and more, but introduces additional
complexity intrinsic intrinsic in the interactions *between* the

Join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long for at how Spring Cloud,
which builds on Spring Boot and the Netflix OSS stack, can eliminate
these complexity problems.

Attendees will emerge having learnt about:

- basic drivers for microservices
- 12-factor app style configuration with the Spring Cloud configuration service
- service registration and discovery with Spring Cloud and Eureka
- preventing failure cascades with Spring Cloud and Hystrix and the
Hystrix Dashboard
- building robust edge services or API gateways with Spring Cloud and Zuul
- client-side load-balancing with Spring Cloud and Ribbon
- using Zookeeper for leadership election and node coordination
- using Spring Security OAuth and Spring Cloud Security for easy, cluster-wide single sign-on for REST-based services
- how to build push-button simple deployments of suites of microservices with Docker and Cloud Foundry. Imagine: `cf push` and your ten node microservice system is up and running!
