Hooray! We just turned 3 and it was an amazing party! Thanks all for your warm greetings, presents and support before, during, and after event. We really appreciate you being involved in this celebration. This all was made for you and would be impossible without you all.
And now, lets go back to what was going on last Saturday.
Back to the [Completable] Future
Have you ever worked with Java threads, monitors or locks? Have you ever used Runnables and Callables? Are you familiar with the Future? I suppose that’s a ‘yes’. Although, I bet you wanna try a better approach. So, this talk by Sofiya is for you!As the technologies around us develop at breakneck speed, we need to keep up. A single class that not only provides you with a strong API, but also introduces a whole new concept to Java. We also had some hands-on experience on Java 8’s and 9’s features of this class.

Microservices Interaction at Scale using Kafka
During this talk, Ivan covered existing interaction models, explained why it should be done in scaling, distributed and fault tolerant way and introduced Apache Kafka – a modern message broker, which suits well in almost any microservice architecture. The demo showed how you can use Kafka events to build smart and loosely coupled micro services.

Hypermedia-driven REST Web Services with Spring Data REST
During this talk, Sofiia overviewed Spring Data REST that is a part of the umbrella Spring Data project and makes it easy to build hypermedia-driven REST web services on top of Spring Data repositories. Sofiia shared tips from her experience and show how you can easily build a REST resources on top of existing repositories.

Test Driven Documentation with Spring Rest Docs
Documenting RESTful services is an important step in development, especially if you are working with microservices architecture or your RESTful APIs are shared and public available. The most widely used tool for this task is Swagger, but it has known limitations and tradeoffs.
Pivotal’s Spring Rest Docs has provided robust, flexible approach that is called Test Driven Documentation. It extends well known Red-Green-Refactoring from TDD with an additional phase of building documentation on the fly. This approach aligns 3 main components in your project – code base, integration tests and documentation and you are absolutely sure that your documentation is always up to date because it is generated from your tests. Furthermore, it supports HATEOAS and provides lots of new features that are not available in Swagger.
Roman gave a detailed overview of Spring Rest Docs as well as demonstrate practical usages of it within a Spring Boot app. Also, Roman advised how to migrate your existing swagger’s project documentation into asciidoc format, extend it with tests and start using Spring Rest Docs.
