Ireland's largest Software Engineering conference is back in 2019, on June 19th & 20th at the Clayton Hotel Cork City.
For a third year in a row, RebelCon is bringing together the Cork Software Engineering community over 2 days of workshops and talks on the latest technology, culture and development practices in the software industry.
RebelCon is a not for profit technology conference run by the developer community for the developer community.
RebelCon is hosted by Poppulo with support for the initiative from it@cork Skillnet
The demand for Kubernetes skills is on the rise. In this workshop we are going to make sure that you understand the basic concepts allowing you to start the path into the amazing world of container orchestration. Deployments, Services and Pods won’t be dark magic anymore after few hours of explanations and directed exercises.
Do you think that Kubernetes is hard? not anymore. On this workshop, from a small application we will learn how to deploy and monitor your app in a managed Kubernetes cluster. Make sure you bring along your laptop and ideally a free trial subscription to GCP or other cloud provider.
This workshop will transition experienced Java developers into the Kotlin language and ecosystem. The delivery will be entirely based around building sample applications, of increasing complexity, from first principles. The day will be structured into four 90 minute iterations, where delegates build the following:
By the end of the workshop delegates will have gained experience in all aspects of Kotlin, but in particular how to make best use of the OO and FP in combination. They will also have seen how to refactor Kotlin code in IntelliJ and write unit, integration and property based tests using KotlinTest. Sample applications written in Kotlin Native and JS will also be provided, but these cannot be created incrementally due to time constraints.
Delegates should have at least 4 years experience in developing Java applications and have some prior exposure to REST and Spring Boot. The only requirements for the course are a laptop with Java 8 (or above) and an up to date version of IntelliJ (the Community Edition is fine).
All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
