Vortrag: Controlling your race with Micrometer and Spring Boot (live coding!)
Imagine that you’re part of a (car) race team. You’re the one behind the screens to control the race and make some tough decisions (like changing the team's strategy).
But you don’t have the insights (or metrics) about your car, opponents or even the weather. Sounds painful right? But why are we making this mistake when building our software? Why don’t we implement metrics by default?
These metrics are exposed by REST endpoints (JSON) together with Spring Boot actuator, which can be saved into a database like Prometheus or Graphite. And to visualize the data you can use a tool like Grafana. Pretty interesting right?
In the demo (live coding!) Ko Turk will show you how to create such applications using Micrometer, Spring Boot and Cloud Foundry as our platform. Ready to win this race with him? Jump in!
