There's a new Atlanta Spring User Group. They've had two meetings so far, and a lot of members right off the bat. "What's Spring?" you ask. It's a Java/J2EE application platform, released under the Apache 2.0 license.You may have hear of some of its parts: Groovy and Grails. They seem to be closely tied to VMWare.

    In the past, we tried to create robust systems via mistake prevention. Modern approaches take a different approach called resiliency. Resilient architectures enhance observability, leverage well-known resiliency patterns (like Circuit Breakers), and embrace chaos. 

    This presentation will show you how to create resilient systems using technologies like Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, Spring Retry, Netflix Hystrix, and Chaos Engineering.

    Speaker:

    Matt Stine is a 17 year veteran of the enterprise IT industry, with eight of those years spent as a consulting solutions architect for multiple Fortune 500 companies, as well as the not-for-profit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He is the author of Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures from O’Reilly and the host of the Software Architecture Radio podcast.

    Matt is obsessed with the idea that enterprise IT “doesn’t have to suck,” and spends much of his time thinking about lean/agile software development methodologies, DevOps, architectural principles/patterns/practices, and programming paradigms, in an attempt to find the perfect storm of techniques that will allow corporate IT departments to not only function like startup companies but also create software that delights users while maintaining a high degree of conceptual integrity. He is currently the product owner for Spring at Pivotal and spends much of his time driving an active feedback loop between the Spring R&D organization and customers developing cloud-native application architectures.

    Matt has spoken at conferences ranging from JavaOne to OSCON to YOW!, is a seven-year member of the No Fluff Just Stuff tour, and serves as Technical Editor of NFJS the Magazine. Matt is also the founder and past president of the Memphis Java User Group.

    SpringOne Platform (@s1p) is Spring's large annual conference where all of the Spring engineers have a chance to come together and present about the many projects on which we have been working. This year, SpringOne is being held on December 4–7, 2017 in San Francisco. If you are attending SpringOne, then we look forward to seeing you there! However, if you are unable to attend, then here is your chance to catch up on the latest news. Join us as we review the many exciting announcements and discuss some of our favorite sessions from this year's SpringOne Platform.

    In the age of quantum computing, computer chip implants and artificial intelligence, it’s easy to feel left behind. For example, the term "machine learning" is increasingly bandied about in corporate settings and cocktail parties, but what is it, really?

    In this session, James Weaver will give a gentle introduction to machine learning topics such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and deep learning. He’ll also give you an overview of what you can achieve with machine learning, as well as an intuition on the maths behind it.

    The presenter is very aware that some material on machine learning can be maths-intensive, and off-putting if you are not confident with your calculus. Conversely, some material doesn’t go into enough detail so you don’t get a feel for how things actually work. This session will start right at the beginning with the basics, and build up in an approachable way to some of the most interesting techniques so you can get the most out of your machine learning adventure.

    Speaker:

    James Weaver (@JavaFXpert) is a Java developer, author, and speaker with a passion for helping Java to be increasingly leveraged in rich-client and and cloud-native applications.  James has written books including Inside Java, Beginning J2EE, the Pro JavaFX series, and Java with Raspberry Pi.  As an Advocate and Principal Technologist, James speaks internationally at software technology conferences about Java and Cloud Native development.
