Level Up Your Java Container
This session is a must for any Java developer under the pressure of high-performance expectations and tight deadlines in a cloud-native architecture. To that end, we have learned to make use of a variety of tools and abstractions to help move us along the path to production quickly and effectively. There is a rapidly and continuously evolving ecosystem that sustains the forward march of microservice architectures and their deployments. But, there’s a dark side to using these tools in a rush to the finish line. Without taking a step back to understand what’s happening below the surface, we can find ourselves stumbling in areas concerning quality, efficiency, and even security.
