Scotland JBug - AppDev in the Cloud Workshop

jbug scotland
I'm heading back to my friends in Scotland to speak at the JBug Scotland next month.

It's a fun group of people that really seem to enjoy working with open source and JBoss software stacks.

This time around I'm bringing a full hands-on workshop showcasing application development in the cloud using containers, JBoss middleware, services, business logic and APIs.

The event is on June 6th, 2018 from 16:15 to 19:30 or so... be sure to register online so they can order the right amount of food.

The abstract for the workshop and talk:

AppDev in the Cloud Workshop

Ready to get hands-on with AppDev in the Cloud with container based services?

This workshop will let you experience the wonders of Red Hat's open technologies for cloud-based container application development, letting you integrate multiple services in to a polyglot cloud solution. In this workshop you're a developer working for Destinaisa, a travel agency that needs to set up its online bookings applications backend services. You'll be given the OpenShift Container Platform, then installing JBoss BRMS to work in the Destinasia discount rules.

Once they are completed, you leverage Ansible playbooks to see infrastructure automation in action. Each playbook will deploy a new container based service to support flight, hotel, car and discount rule queries from your application. In total you will be running 6 container based applications or services in a private PaaS before testing this solution with a REST client, sending a booking and verifying the discounts provided by the rules you implemented.

Bring your laptop and see you in Scotland next month!
