Once we looked at serialization as an important addition to Java. As the years passed, we began to recognize the flaws in its design and sighed. Today we realize that the story of Java serialization has become a dark and twisted tale.
GraalVM is a high-performance open source virtual machine offering new optimizations for individual languages and seamless interoperability for polyglot applications. For Java, GraalVM lets you optimize different performance aspects including a choice between JIT and AOT compilation modes, employing diagnostics tools and selecting the best language libraries for the job.
As a Java developer, you have probably heard about distributed tracing, that it solves all diagnosis problems or perhaps it can wash your car. This session is not about buzz; it is about real world sites and how real people understand production requests as they traverse their Java microservice architectures.
Ok, so you know your Docker. You know how to create images and start containers. That is cool, but where do we go from here? Well, all the cool kids are talking about Kubernetes and container orchestrators, and how they are like magic pixie dust to your applications. How they …

This talk discusses the migration of microservices from Java to Kotlin. It takes a closer look at the challenges faced as a team, the impact on the day-to-day work in an agile environment and how to overcame technical hurdles integrating with Spring Boot and introducing asynchronous workflows with Kotlin coroutines.
