Preview - February 2020 ACGNJ Java Users Group Meeting

This month's Java Users Group meeting will be held on Thursday, February 13 at Drew University starting at 6:30pm.

Mark Heckler, Spring Developer & Advocate at Pivotal, will present "Game of Streams: How to Tame and Get the Most from Your Messaging Platforms."


Most mission-critical systems have distributed elements or are entirely distributed, resulting in a number of challenges: performance, scalability, reliability, resilience. The eight fallacies of distributed computing are alive and well!

Messaging platforms are often used to solve these problems and increase the "ilities", but they don't come without a few complexities of their own. Mark will not only teach you how to use open source solutions like Spring Cloud Stream, RabbitMQ, and Apache Kafka to maximize your distributed systems' capabilities while minimizing complexity, but also how to really use them! There be dragons when dealing with messaging platforms; Mark will show you several ways to tame and harness them for maximum fire, maximum altitude. All examples will be coded live and in real-time!
