Spring and Cassandra are two of the leading technologies for building cloud native applications. In this talk by the project leads for Spring Data and the Cassandra Java Driver, we’ll cover the recent improvements in the latest and greatest versions of Spring Boot, Spring Data Cassandra, Cassandra 4.0 and the Cassandra Java driver. Whether you’re a novice, intermediate, or expert developer, this content will help you get started or migrate your existing application to the latest innovations. We’ll illustrate these new concepts with code samples and snippets that you can find on https://github.com/DataStax-Examples/spring-data-starter/ to help you get things done faster with these tools.

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.
