SpringOne Tour Session abstracts

Bootiful Spring Boot 3

Josh Long
Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3 are here, and you know what that means. New baselines and new 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 offers a new observability layer, declarative HTTP and RSocket clients, preliminary Project Loom and CRaC support, Problem-Details support, and so much more. Join me, Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman), and we’ll look at next-gen Spring.

Native Support in Spring Boot 3
Stephane Nicoll
After a successful experimental phase with the Spring Native project, the Spring team is bringing Ahead Of Time (AOT) support to Spring. The goal here is to enable GraalVM native use cases and improve JVM efficiency. During this talk, Stéphane will discuss the state of the AOT theme in Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3:
  • The design of the AOT engine
  • How this new infrastructure can be used by libraries
  • What to expect as an application developer

Making your @Beans Intelligent
Mark Pollack
There is much discussion about AI in the general media and among geeks, sparked by the recent advancements in OpenAI’s ChatGPT. As a Java developer, how do I start making AI-powered apps? Drawing inspiration from successful Python projects such as LangChain and LlamaIndex, Spring AI has got you covered. An AI application isn’t just about the model; it is about the software engineering that makes your application solve real-world use cases, use cases that are not solved by simply asking ChatGPT on the web. In this session, we will start immediately with a hello world example and then introduce the domain language of AI applications and how you can solve real-world use cases such as Q&A over your own documents. At the end of this talk, you will have the basics to make your @Beans intelligent!

Make the Right Thing the Obvious Thing: The Journey to Internal Developer Platforms
Cora Iberkleid
As software designers and engineers, we are well aware of the importance of simplicity in maximizing software usability and end user productivity. Simplicity makes complex systems easier to understand, use, debug, maintain, and reuse. It is the careful balance of abstraction and automation with just enough transparency, context, and control. The first question in designing a simple yet effective end user experience is… who IS the end user?! In the case of Internal Developer Platforms (IDPs)—the latest buzz word to light up the platform space—if you are a software developer at an organization, then the end user is YOU! Platform and DevOps teams have long been on a journey to maximize developer productivity. IDPs are the culmination of these efforts, taking into account a broad spectrum of developer needs to maximize developer experience in a more comprehensive way. In this talk, we'll take a walk through time to understand how we got to IDPs, and examine their key elements and characteristics. We'll also consider the ever-relevant "build vs. buy" question by looking at Tanzu Application Platform and the various open source technologies that underpin it as an example.
