Here are the slides used during our Spring Hadoop conference:
This conference is organised by Pivotal (SpringSource is part of the Pivotal Group)
We are glad to announce that we will host a free conference about Spring and Hadoop on Friday August 30th in downtown Singapore from 6.30 to 8.30 PM.
1- Spring best practices: from Spring Petclinic to Spring Data Hadoop
Michael Isvy joined SpringSource (the company behind Spring, now part of Pivotal) in 2008. He has, since then, taught Spring to more than 1000 students in 10 different countries. He has presented on Spring at numerous conferences and is an active technical blogger on the SpringSource blog. Michael holds the position of Education Manager for the Asia-Pacific region at SpringSource/Pivotal.
He has recently worked on the new Spring-Petclinic sample application, which aims to promote best practices when working with Spring and Spring MVC inside a web application. He will use this application to showcase Spring best practices. He will also bring an interesting perspective on how Spring best practices have evolved over time.
In the end, Michael will present the Spring Data Hadoop project that offers a simple POJO programming model for Apache Hadoop developers.
