J4K - Java and Kubernetes in an All-Star Speaker Line-up in One Conference
Published Sep 23 2020 11:00 AM 3,787 Views

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 to many 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 was conceived to help folks navigate their way through a mix of options.  J4K is running four tracks to help developers enrich their experiences and skillsets.  


2020 session tracks:  

  1. Application on cloud, containers and K8s (real life examples) 
  2. Frameworks and architectures on cloud, containers and K8s 
  3. Developer tools for cloud, containers and K8s 
  4. Practices and other technologies 

There will be 50 exciting sessions. Keynote by Red Hat VP of Engineering - Mark Little, and Microsoft CVP of Azure Engineering - Brendan Burns. To welcome the community and make you feel at home, we have Heather VanCura, Chairperson and Director of the Java Community Process (JCP), and Josh Long, Spring Developer Advocate at VMWare. Just because it's 2020 and in-person conferences are of the past in this strange new world, you shouldn't miss a beat in personal growth and community fun. Join J4K with Microsoft to help us celebrate and move Java on Kubernetes forward for all.
