Dec 2016 – Caching with Anthony Dahanne

We are lucky enough to have Anthony Dahanne from Terracotta visit us this month! He is bringing his talk about the need for Caching in Java applications today from Confoo to Victoria. He talks about Docker and Java so we might even squeeze some of that knowledge out of him 😉

Meeting Details


Tuesday, 6th of December 2016
18:00 onwards
xMatters office
620-947 Fort St, Victoria, BC

Please register for the free meeting.

About the Sessions:

Caching in Applications Still Matters!

Is caching data in your application still relevant today with all those HTTP caches, very fast key value stores, and micro services?
During this presentation, the attendee will learn the basics of caching (TTL, TTI, invalidation, tiering, etc.), key figures in the caching world, how the Java community came up with a specification (JSR 107) and how you can leverage it in your application with the implementation of your choice (EhCache 3).

Docker and Java:

Docker is a famous containerization technology, but how can Java developers leverage it?
During this talk, attendees will discover how to create a Docker image from their Java app, how to deploy it to an internal or public registry, how to leverage Jenkins to automate those steps, and some nice IDE goodies to help them along the way!

About Anthony:

Software Developer for 10 years, my favorite topics are Docker, building tools, Continuous Integration and, of course, core Java development.
Working for Terracotta, I currently implement the REST management interface for Terracotta products, along with Docker images for our products.
On my spare time, I work on various open source projects : from Twitter bots written in NodeJS, to Android apps – with of course their corresponding Docker images if possible 🙂
