JAX London is a hybrid conference that brings together cutting edge software engineers and enterprise-level professionals innovating in the fields of Java, microservices, continuous delivery and DevOps. It will run from October 3 through October 6, 2022.

My talk title is “Pick Technologies Faster by Coding with JHipster!”. I will give it on October 4 at 10:15.


Technologies like cloud, microservices, containers, DevOps, and apps drive Java projects today and evolve quickly. So we Java developers need to pick more technologies more often today. How do we pick the right ones? And how can we stay up-to-date?

I will discuss common challenges for picking technologies. Then I’ll introduce JHipster, an open-source application generator (100k monthly downloads). JHipster has no proprietary layers and creates production-ready code. With JHipster, we can generate the same application with different technologies. This applies to architecture (monolith & microservices), frameworks (Spring Boot, Quarkus, Micronaut, Node.js & .NET), data storage (NoSQL & SQL), authentication (OAuth 2, JWT & session), front-ends (React, Angular & Vue.js), Continuous Integration (Jenkins pipeline, Azure pipelines, GitLab CI, GitHub Actions, Travis CI & CircleCI), deployment (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift, Cloud Foundry & Heroku), and more.

We build, test, debug, deploy and run these applications in our environment with our data. So, we learn technologies by running code! That’s much better than learning from outdated articles with toy examples that neither apply to our environment nor our data!

I will generate a JHipster application in the talk.

Why Should You Listen To Me?

I’ve been a Java developer for 23 years. I’m a Java news reporter for InfoQ, so I know what’s going on in the Java world. I’m neither affiliated with the projects I’m discussing nor selling books or training courses.

I share industry analysis and my project experiences to give you options for your next project. But in the end, you decide!
