In this episode

Kubernetes has become a de facto standard in the cloud-native software development. Because Spring 🖤 K8s, we have added significant features that make Spring work even better in the Kubernetes environment. The GraalVM project has introduced native images that allow to run Java apps in milliseconds with minimal memory footprint. Because Spring 🖤 native images, we have our own Spring Native project that lets you run Spring Boot apps blazingly fast with low memory consumption. Regardless of how you’re running your applications, production observability is a necessity to debug business problems and latency issues. Because Spring 🖤 observability, we help you add metrics to your processes with Micrometer and visualize latency thanks to distributed tracing with Spring Cloud Sleuth & Tanzu Observability. In this presentation we will show you how to do all of that with Spring & Spring Cloud.

Guests

Marcin Grzejszczak

Author of books on testing and video courses. Lead of Spring Cloud Sleuth, Spring Cloud Contract projects at VMware.

Hosts

Tiffany Jernigan

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 likes to spend time with her fiancé, family, and friends, as well as dabble in photography. You can find her on Twitter @tiffanyfayj.

Whitney Lee

Whitney traveled the scenic route but is absolutely chuffed to have found her way to Kubernetes and cloud technologies. She began her professional career as a fine artist before owning her own photography business for over a decade. Then, after a year-long tour playing keys and singing harmonies in the band Mutual Benefit, Whitney went back to school to learn full-stack web development. Shortly after graduation Whitney was employed by IBM as a cloud developer, using none of the skills she had just learned at school. However Whitney quickly developed an insatiable appetite for all things cloud, and a passion for teaching others as she acquired knowledge herself. She has made many light board videos for IBM Cloud, from topics ranging from creating a Pod in Kubernetes, to event-driven architecture, to cloud-native API solutions. At VMware Whitney’s contagious excitement drives her to continue to explore, collaborate, teach, and play!

Leigh Capili

Leigh is an empathetic speaker and developer with niches in cloud-native systems and security. Leigh comes from a background of building software to manage infrastructure. He contributes to Kubernetes and Flux and is frequently working on his next software demo
