J4K is an industry leading conference that combines the best of open source and middleware communities for developing Java applications on Kubernetes.

Containers and Kubernetes have been gaining serious traction in the market within the last few years and organizations are now exploring and leveraging the benefits of hybrid and multi-cloud environments. We are at a convergence point where middleware and application services need to be made efficient to run on containers and Kubernetes.

This conference is targeted to developers and industry influencers of middleware and application services on Kubernetes. We ask speakers to include technical demos as part of their session presentations.

J4K 2022 is an in-person conference that will take place in Orlando, Florida, USA on September 28-29, 2022.

CFP Description

Tack 2 - Frameworks and architectures on cloud, containers and K8s

Some examples are (not an exhaustive list):

  • Microservices with JVM languages, e.g. Java, Kotlin, Scala, Closure, etc.
  • Serverless/FaaS, e.g. Knative + runtimes (Java)
  • Reactive programming in Java
  • Event-driven architectures
  • Live coding, local and remote
  • Programming Java frameworks for containers and K8s, e.g. Jakarta EE, Spring Boot, etc.
