Eventbrite - Scalable microservices with Java Spring and Docker


This is a one-day workshop, designed for software developers and solution architects who wants to start learning about microservices architecture patterns and the benefit of building microservices using Docker containers.

For coding, we will use Java, so a previous experience is preferable but not mandatory.

The workshop is organized in 4 sections:

1- Microservices

  • What are microservices?
  • From a monolith architecture to a microservices architecture
  • Microservices design: main patterns and best practices
  • Develop our first microservice with Java Spring: ROT13

2- Docker

  • Introduction to Docker
  • Working with Docker images from Docker Hub
  • Run our first application by CLI
  • Build a customized images by a Dockerfile
  • Deploy a complex application through Docker Compose
  • Basics of Docker networkingDocker Architecture: a preview from the Module 2.1

3 – Put all together

  • Build a Docker image for our ROT13 microservice and publish it on Docker Hub
  • Use Docker Compose for deploying a cluster of ROT13 microservices with an HAProxy load balancer
  • Monitor our ROT13 microservice with CAdvisor
  • Scaling containers by docker-compose CLI
  • Using continuous integration with our ROT13 microservice with Jenkins

4 – Extras

  • Continuous integration by Jenkins and Github
