Hi Graeme, tell us who you are and what lead you into microservices?


I am the creator Grails (https://grails.org) and Micronaut (https://micronaut.io) and lead the engineering teams for those two Open Source projects at Object Computing (https://objectcomputing.com).


Having built a highly successful Java-based framework for building traditional applications (Grails) I wanted to see if we could approach the Microservice problem in a different way and build something completely new that was faster and more efficient than traditional approaches, hence we created Micronaut which is based on Ahead of Time (AoT) compilation techniques and helps in building Microservice applications that start faster and consume less memory than traditional frameworks.


What will you be talking about at Voxxed Days Microservices? 

I have two talks prepared, one a deep dive into the inner workings of Micronaut and how architecturally it allows building more streamlined applications and another a short byte size talk on using Ahead of Time computation in the relational data access space.


Micronaut 1.0 was released in October 2018. What happened since then, what are the novelties of the newer versions ? 

Micronaut 1.2 will be released within the next week or so and includes so many refinements including precomputed bean validation, support for OpenID connect and OAuth 2.0 as well as vastly improved support for GraalVM native images.

We also launched Micronaut Data which is a new project that applies all of the Micronaut patterns to the data repository space allowing much more efficient data access logic.


Good, see you soon then
