Josh (@starbuxman) has (officially) been a Spring Developer Advocate since 2010. Josh is a Java Champion, a Kotlin Google Developer Expert,
author of 6 books (including O’Reilly’s [Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring Boot](https://www.amazon.com/Cloud-Native-Java-Designing-Resilient/dp/1449374646, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry) and the upcoming Reactive Spring) and numerous best-selling video trainings (including Building Microservices with Spring Boot Livelessons with Spring Boot co-founder Phil Webb), and an open-source contributor (Spring Boot, Spring Integration, Spring Cloud, Activiti and Vaadin), a podcaster (A Bootiful Podcast) and a screencaster.
I've done a lot of different talks, but you might be interested in the following:
- Getting Started with Spring Boot This older talk looks at how to get started with Spring Boot.
- Cloud Native Java. This older talk looks at using Spring Cloud to build microservices.
- This is a longer look at reactive programming with Spring, Reactive Spring, that was filmed at the first WAES Tech Event in the Netherlands.
- A more up-to-date, but shorter, look at Reactive programming with Spring called The Reactive Revolution, this one from the YOW! conference circuit in various cities in Australia
- I look at test-driven development and testing in general with this video from Devoxx 2019
I've done a number of Livelessons training videos you might be interested in over on Safari.
I've written six books including O'Reilly's Cloud Native Java (all about getting to production faster with microservices with Spring and Cloud Foundry) and Reactive Spring.
