J4K – A Virtual Conference for Java Developers on Kubernetes – Coming to you on June 9th, 2021
Published Jun 07 2021 06:00 AM 4,714 Views

J4K is an industry-leading developer-oriented conference focused on open-source and hybrid cloud application development of Java and Kubernetes. This is a community event, delivered by stellar Java community leaders, and is dedicated to enriching developers and architects with cloud-focused solutions. Registration is free. 



Java has a rich history in enterprise applications and has evolved over the past two decades to encompass a rich ecosystem with open-source projects, open standards, innovation by individuals, and start-ups to companies of all sizes. With the maturity of cloud computing, advancements such as automated operations for hybrid and multi-cloud are needed more now than ever before. Kubernetes is top of mind for migrating traditional on-premises deployment to the cloud. There's a tradeoff, however, around new platforms, methodology, best practices, budgetary considerations, and modernization options to name a few. Great, so what's next?  


The J4K conference goal is to help developers navigate their way through a mix of options. J4K is running two tracks to help developers enrich their experiences and skillsets.  


 2021 Session Tracks: 

  • Applications and Best Practices on Cloud, Containers, and K8s 
  • Frameworks and Tools on Cloud, Containers, and K8s 

There will be nineteen exciting sessions including keynotes by Red Hat VP of Engineering - Mark Little on “The Future of Java,” with special guest Astronaut Patrick Baudry who served on the crew of the space shuttle Discovery. This year we are coming to you virtually again, although in a single day format, as Part 1. Later in the year, we will be back with another impressive line-up for Part 2. Join J4K with Microsoft to help us celebrate and move Java on Kubernetes forward for all.
