Mother Nature vs Java - the security face off

Mother Nature has had millennia to build up its defences to the many potential hazards and attacks it may face. So, given its wisdom and expertise on this subject, what can we as software developers learn from it and bring back to the evolution of our own application’s security? In this session we’ll explore where software and biology overlap when it comes to security and lessons we can learn from nature to improve our own application security.

Thriving in the cloud: Venturing beyond the 12 factors

Enabling applications to really thrive (and not just survive) in cloud environments can be challenging. The original 12 factor app methodology helped to lay out some of the key characteristics needed for cloud-native applications... but... as our cloud infrastructure and tooling has progressed, so too have these factors.

In this workshop we'll dive into the extended and updated 15 factors needed to build cloud native applications that are able to thrive in this environment, and get hands-on with open source technologies and tools (including MicroProfile, Jakarta EE, Open Liberty, OpenJ9, and more!) that can help us achieve this.
