Infinispan on tour, March-April 2019
Infinispan has been on tour!!
I - Katia Aresti - had the chance to present 3 talks in 3 different conferences and countries during the last month:
Breizh Camp 2019 the 22th March, Rennes (France)
Greach Conf 2019, 29th March, Madrid (Spain)
Voxxed Days Milano 2019, 13th April, Milan (Italy)
2019 has been BreizhCamp’s 9th - Code Busters - edition and they sold-out the conference in a matter of hours (wow).
I did not have the time to attend any talk. Unfortunately, due to my personal schedule, I arrived on Thursday night, and I was presenting on Friday after lunch. This was the second time I was giving this presentation, but I did lot’s of changes since the first time, including:
Big upgrades to my presentation look and feel
Harry-Potterize my Vert.x Clustered Infinispan Embedded. An original demo containing more examples of Vert.x and Infinispan can be found here.
Creating and live-coding an Infinispan Client/Server + Quarkus Demo
Using Infinispan Operator to create an Infinispan Cluster in Openshift 4

On Friday morning I was stressed and I ran my presentation at the hotel. I arrived at the venue, delivered my talk and headed back to Paris. I deeply regretted not spending more time hanging out with other speakers and attendees, but I really couldn’t make it this time :(
Greach Conf is a lovely conference held in Madrid (Spain) for several years now. A 100% international conference, it has been organized by the Groovy community.
This year they have changed the conference lineup adding an Android/Testing track and focusing on a bigger spectrum of technologies around the JVM.

I learned a bunch of new things, including content related to SDKMan!, Gradle, the future of Grails and of course, Micronaut. As the principal maintainer of Spring-Boot and Infinispan integration, Micronaut felt new and familiar at the same time. I really enjoyed the workshop delivered by Alvaro Sánchez who will be in Devoxx France this week. The framework is really impressive. Give it a try!
You will find on Twitter a complete thread about my Greach Conf impressions:

Voxxed Days Milano (Italy) was organizing the first edition this year and I really loved this conference in every aspect of it! Thanks, Mario Fusco and all the team involved for making it possible!

Thanks to Breizh Camp, Greach Conf and Voxxed Days Milano for the opportunity to share around distributed caches and for the amazing time I’ve had during this month in each of the conferences.
This tour is now over for a while but will continue before summer. I will be presenting this talk (with upgrades, so stay tuned) in Dev Fest Lille in June 2019 (France), in Comunidad CODE (Virtual talk) and Software Crafters Bilbao in Spanish.
Devoxx France is taking place this week in Paris. I will be there, so if you want to chat about Distributed caches, Datagrids, NoSQL Key-Value databases, or integration with your favorite framework feel free to reach me on twitter!
There are lot’s of new features and Reactive APIs to be done for Infinispan 10, so my main focus will be there for a bit.
Stay Tuned And Happy Coding!
