October 2019 [b] Meeting Information


October 22, 2019
Serverless Kotlin with App Engine

We are happy to announce that Ray Tsang will be our special guest for this month's meeting.

After years of development of a new security sandbox, App Engine Standard now supports Java 8 and practically all of the JVM languages that runs atop of standard OpenJDK 8. In the new sandbox environment, the Java security sandbox and the classes whitelist were removed; this allows developers to use all features in the JVM and still being protected within a secure environment.

App Engine can now support powerful frameworks like Spring Boot, Dropwizard with all the Java 8 language features. Best of all, you can run any JVM languages, including Groovy & Kotlin.

Ray will show how to use Kotlin end-to-end to build from an Android mobile client and also the backend with Kotlin and Spring Boot that can be quickly deployed and capable of scaling from 0 to infinity.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, Room 106, at Drew University starting promptly at 6:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
