    • More than 15 million Java developers are currently working to realize business requirements and spend a ton of time and effort to optimize the application performance for a variety of workloads (e.g., Web, Mobile, AI/ML, Edge) in the cloud. A big issue for developers is adopting a new programming language or Java runtime due to the lack of compatibility with Kubernetes.

      This session will walk you through how developers can scaffold a Java project from scratch and then build it as a Kubernetes Native application that allows you to have a tiny memory footprint and takes milliseconds to start up. You can also continue testing and debugging the application while it’s already deployed to the remote Kubernetes cluster, the same way a local developer experiences the inner loop of development.


      Registration Required to attend this event.
