In April 2020, the Bolivia Java User Group held a virtual meetup with Latin American JUG’s participants. The event covered Java cloud-native and microservice development, infrastructure, and contribution to the Open Source ecosystem distributed in three sessions:
It’s Easy! Contributing to Open Source
César Hernández, from Guatemala JUG, provided a session about how to contribute and become a valuable part of any open source community. Examples of how to learn and apply soft and hard skills were presented based on MicroProfile and Apache TomEE Open Source projects. Attendees were able to learn how to access and navigate the culture of open source projects, understand expected behaviors and attitudes toward new contributors; how to start small, take risks, ask lots of questions; and how to get started with standard open-source tools like Maven, Git, and JIRA.
Architecting Cloud Computing Solutions in Java
Otavio Santana, from SouJava Brazillian community, presented the advantages and challenges cloud computing brings to existing and new architectures along with a step-by-step guide to guide you through implementing Cloud computing services effectively and efficiently.
Deploying Java Applications to Azure
Reza Rahman, from Philadelphia JUG, conducted a demo-driven session that showed the many ways of effectively deploying a Java EE application to IaaS, PaaS, Docker and Kubernetes Azure services. During the session, attendees discussed the trade-offs of each approach and offered guidelines to deploy applications on the cloud.
