Entando at the JHipster Conf 2019
Here’s today a post by Giuseppe, our Software Engineer, who attended the JHipster Conf 2019 in Paris.
Here at Entando we’re working hard to make modern applications building a breeze.
The new versions of our platform will:
- be dead simple to extend through plugins
- use top-notch and widely adopted open source solutions
- let developers choose the frontend technology they’re familiar with
That’s why we attended the JHipster Conf 2019.
JHipster is an app generator built on solid industry-standards like Java and Spring.
With JHipster, developers can quickly create microservices or web applications skeletons based on one of the most popular frontend frameworks like Angular, React and Vue.
At JHipster Conf we found passionate professionals, inspiring stories and valuable insights for our future plans. These were the talks we attended:
Keynote - Julien Dubuis and Deepu K Sasidharan
An introduction to JHipster, to its new features, and some good news on leadership, both solid and shared: three general leads plus specific leads for different areas (streams). That means JH is a project worth investing our time.
A JHipster story: the impact of collaboration - Cindy Marin
A very inspiring and moving story about a couple of entrepreneurs that left a business in Venezuela because its very difficult situation. Now they run a company from Spain and JHipster is one of the pillars of their new infrastructure.
This was an awesome proof of the power of open source software (we’re open source as well!) and communities.
Open Collective - Pia Mancini
Open Collective is a platform for open source project group to collect and spend money transparently.
Funding and overall sustainability are crucial topics in the open source world: we all sometimes forget behind lots of not-commercial open source projects there are people donating their time to the community.
The Reactive Revolution - Josh Long
Reactive Programming is a quite new paradigm in software development, although it’s catching growing interest. We can use at his best in the Spring platform, and Joe explains how.
What the heck are OAuth and OIDC? - Matt Raible
There is often some confusion around concepts like authentication, authorization OAuth, OIDC. Matt told us what they are and how they evolved to keep up with web and native apps.
JHipster beyond CRUD: API-first for enterprises - Enrico Costanzi
Enrico showed us some different approaches to code generation with JHipster: code based, API based, or a mixed ones, based on his work experience.
Kotlin Hipster and Blueprints - Sendil Kumar
Kotlin is the new kid on the block in the Java community: open source, general purpose, good for both functional and OO programming.
Sendil showcased a flavor of JHipster using Kotlin and talked about blueprints, a way to extend JHipster functionalities that could be very useful for us at Entando.
JHipster side-by-side in practice - David Steiman
Technical talk with live coding adopting side by side development: it’s based on JDL (the powerful domain language to describe entities in JHipster) and uses (re)generated code alongside developer customizations. If you’d like more detail, have a look at these slides and this video from past year’s edition.
Do we need a JHipster Kubernetes Operator? - Mauricio Salatino
Mauricio made Kubernetes meet JHipster: very good news for us, who plan to introduce Kubernetes in the new generation of the Entando platform!
JHipster in a mobile world: from generation to the app store - Jon Ruddell
JHipster can not only generate web apps or microservice: thanks to React Native, it can even provide us a full-featured native mobile app!
Besides these awesome talks, we really enjoyed being part of a community and sharing precious knowledge. Definitely one of the best perks working in Entando.
Stay tuned for more insights about the new version of the Entando platform!
