Java based software development has been a winning proposition for the past 20+ years, however, cloud native application development in the form of microservices and serverless apps are challenging the Java deployment model in terms of memory requirements and start up speed. Quarkus is a Kubernetes native Java stack that can tailor your application for Hotspot and AOT native compilation providing amazingly fast boot times and incredibly low RSS memory usage, making Java great again in a Cloud Native Universe.
At Voxxed Days Zurich Quarkus is celebrating its first birthday as a community project! Come to this talk to get an introduction to Quarkus as we review the developments of this crazy first year and explain what makes Quarkus special.
