-- A presentation from QConPlus 2020 (https://plus.qconferences.com/plus2020/presentation/serverless-search-my-blog-java-quarkus-aws-lambda) --
A Serverless app? With Java?! Absolutely!
We’ll discuss when Serverless is a great fit (and when it isn’t!) and why you don’t need to leave the Java platform when going Serverless. Based on the real-world example of a Serverless blog search, you’ll learn how Quarkus and GraalVM help you with building apps for AWS Lambda, which are blazing fast to start up and are memory-efficient at the same time. We’ll explore
* Which options Quarkus provides for creating AWS Lambda apps, making noticeable cold-start delays a thing of the past
* What it takes to enable existing libraries like Apache Lucene to be used in GraalVM native binaries
* How to build Serverless apps which are portable across platforms, avoiding lock-in into specific cloud providers
Join us for this session to stop worrying about cold-starts and exploding costs, and learn how to love Serverless -- Java style!
