Microservices, rapid scalability & high density deployment platforms like Kubernetes require apps with low memory usage and fast boot time. Java had been the outsider due to its focus on throughput at the expense of CPU & RAM. No more. Enter Quarkus, a microservices Java stack bringing your favorite libs (Hibernate, vert.x, Camel, RESTEasy ...) to GraalVM and HotSpot with low memory usage and fast boot time. Enough to swim in containers like fish in water. Data is usually the hardest part, lets demonstrate Quarkus with persistence and Hibernate ORM. Come explore live reload, opinionated persistence with Hibernate Panache, testing, GraalVM native compilation and more. Since Quarkus is better lived than talked, expect a heavy demo session.
