As Luke took his first steps into a larger world at the start of his Jedi training he realized he was part of a larger system, the Force. In this installment of SpringOne Tour, we’re going to teach our cloud native Spring Boot applications how to wield the Force by building on abstractions that know about and incorporate Kubernetes itself.
On day one, join VMware Tanzu team members Josh Long, Mario Gray, Tiffany Jernigan, Dave Turanski, Chris Sterling, Nate Schutta, and special guest Joe Beda, co-creator of Kubernetes, for Booternetes II: The YAML Strikes Back.
Join Tanzu team members Cora Iberkleid, Ryan Baxter, David Turanski, Jonatan Ivanov, and Ivan Tarin for an interactive workshop on where you’ll learn to apply some of these concepts in practice.
Mario is a principal technologist at VMware with more than 20 years of experience in software development and software architecture. He is co-author of Pro Spring Integration (Apress, 2011). He’s helped organizations large and small build service-based architectures in a number of different runtimes and platforms over the decades, but adopting Spring in 2004, and using it whenever possible since, was a no-brainer that culminated in joining the Spring team in 2017. As a Spring developer advocate, Mario loves to engage and inspire developers and businesses in the Pivotal ecosystem.
Tiffany is a senior developer advocate at VMware and is focused on Kubernetes. She previously worked as a software developer and developer advocate (nerd whisperer) for containers at Amazon. She also formerly worked at Docker and Intel. Prior to that, she graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in electrical engineering. In her free time she really likes to travel and dabble in photography. You can find her on Twitter @tiffanyfayj.
Chris has an extensive technology, process, and consulting background and brings his experience and deep passion for software development into his daily work. Chris published the book Managing Software Debt: Building for Inevitable Change with Addison-Wesley in 2010 to provide a framework for teams and organizations to assess and manage debt in their software systems. He has spoken at many conferences and user groups on topics such as continuous delivery, software architecture, technology management, Lean and Agile processes, and Lean Startup. Chris has taught the “Advanced Topics in Agile Software Development” class at the University of Washington in the Agile Developer Certificate extension program. Chris has also successfully supported the efforts of organizational change, Lean, Agile, and Continuous Delivery across multiple verticals with organizations in range of 10 up to 800 people.
Nathaniel T. Schutta is a software architect focused on cloud computing and building usable applications. A proponent of polyglot programming, Nate has written multiple books and appeared in various videos. He is a seasoned speaker, regularly presenting at conferences worldwide, No Fluff Just Stuff symposia, meetups, universities, and user groups. In addition to his day job, Nate is an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota where he teaches students to embrace (and evaluate) technical change. Driven to rid the world of bad presentations, Nate co-authored the book Presentation Patterns (O’Reilly Media, 2016) with Neal Ford and Matthew McCullough. He also recently published Thinking Architecturally (O’Reilly Media, 2018), available as a free download from VMware.
Cora Iberkleid is a Developer Advocate for Modern Applications at VMware Tanzu, helping developers and enterprises navigate modern practices and technologies, focusing on cloud native architecture, modern CI/CD, Spring, and Kubernetes.
Prior to joining VMware, Cora was an Advisory Solutions Engineer at Pivotal. She also spent nearly a decade at Sun Microsystems and Oracle, helping customers design and build enterprise integration applications. Through this experience, she developed an understanding and empathy for complex organizational challenges, and she strives to incorporate this empathy into her everyday work.
Exploring new languages, frameworks, and technologies, and then sharing what he’s learned, has always come naturally to Ryan. Even when it wasn’t his day job, Ryan has always been driven by his passion, spending his time and energy educating his friends, colleagues, or anyone else that would listen. Currently, Ryan is working as a software engineer as part of the Spring Cloud team. Ryan has a passion for sharing what he learns via social media, including Twitter and his blog, as well as in person at conferences. When he’s not coding, Ryan likes spending time with his daughter, ice fishing, running obstacle course races, and watching the Red Sox.
Jonatan Ivanov is an enthusiastic Software Engineer working in the Spring Engineering Team. He is one of the leaders of the Seattle Java User Group, a speaker, an author, and a certified dragon trainer. He has hands-on experience in developing and shipping innovative, production-ready software for industry-leader companies. He likes distributed systems, production, open source, math, Linux, and cloud environments, and he is passionate about the Java Ecosystem and the Java Community. He is an Open Source contributor, writes a “develotters”-focused blog, and sometimes he can be found on Twitter (@jonatan_ivanov) and in the Seattle area, but he is originally from Hungary.
