Josh Long
Josh (@starbuxman) has been the first Spring Developer Advocate since 2010. Josh is a Java Champion, author of 7 books (including "Reactive Spring") and numerous best-selling video training (including "Building Microservices with Spring Boot Livelessons" with Spring Boot co-founder Phil Webb), and an open-source contributor (Spring Boot, Spring Integration, Axon, Spring Cloud, Activiti, Vaadin, etc), a Youtuber (Coffee + Software with Josh Long as well as my Spring Tips series ), and a podcaster ("A Bootiful Podcast").
Spring Framework 6+ and Spring Boot 3+ are here, which means new baselines and possibilities. Spring Framework implies a Java 17 and Jakarta EE baseline and offers new support for building GraalVM-native images and a compile-time component model in the new Spring AOT engine. It also features a new observability layer, declarative HTTP and RSocket clients, preliminary Project Loom and CRaC support, ProblemDetail support, and much more. Developer productivity is second to none with first-class support for Testcontainers, Docker Compose, and live reloads. Spring makes idiomatic use of the latest Kotlin features like coroutines and extension functions. Join me Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) and we’ll explore next-gen Spring together
Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3 imply a new baseline, bringing the Spring ecosystem in line with the needs of tomorrow's workloads. A huge part of that is the new baselines of Jakarta EE and Java 17 and the new support for GraalVM native images, based on the work of Spring Native. Join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long and Developer Advocate for GraalVM Alina Yurenko as they explore the implications of this exciting new technology for your Spring Boot applications and services.
We'll look at things like using the GraalVM AOT compiler to produce native images that take up a markedly smaller memory footprint and start up in 10s or maybe hundreds of milliseconds. We'll look at how to containerize those workloads. We'll look at how to tame the GraalVM compiler when something goes wrong. And we'll look at how to teach GraalVM about your custom workloads.
