We are back! This time we will take a deep dive into what it means to have a cloud native Java Application presented by Rustam Mehmandarov. We are also so lucky to have Hans Kristian Flaatten walk us through how NAV is deploying applications on GCP.

About this event
We are so luck to have two great speakers for this meetup
Your Cloud-Native Toolbox for Java
What does it mean to have cloud-native Java applications? What do you need to think about to be a good Cloud citizen?
It is not about the platform you run it on or the library/framework you want to use. It is about how you build scalable, observable, resilient applications while keeping in mind the application architecture, containers, builds, testing, automation, and standards.
Join us in exploring different tools for creating cloud-native Java apps. We will go through the whole life-cycle of an application – from the first lines of code to a fully operational and containerized application.
Passionate computer scientist. Java Champion and Google Developers Expert for Cloud. Public speaker. Ex-leader of JavaZone and Norwegian JUG – javaBin.
How NAV builds applications in GCP
Since 2018 NAV has been using GCP for their application platform and since then about 60% of our container-based applications are running in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) utilizing Google CloudSQL, Google Cloud Storage and Google BigQuery for data persistence. In this talk Hans Kristian Flaatten will describe how NAV builds modern applications in GCP.
