Java, Turbocharged!

Java, Turbocharged!

Over the last twenty years, there has been a paradigm shift in software development: from meticulously planned release cycles to an experimental way of working in which lead times are becoming shorter and shorter.

More and more companies are replacing Java in the Cloud with Go or Node, as they have much faster startup times combined with a much smaller memory footprint, which is especially important in a serverless environment.

After a short introduction, I will demonstrate how we can create a native executable with Quarkus, and how fast we can scale a large cluster of Quarkus containers in the cloud. Last but not least, I will show you how much fun it is to develop a REST + JPA based application with the help of Quarkus.
