Moving from College to the Web Development Workplace

In this talk, Liz Baker will share practical insights and experiences gained during her transition from Drew University to the dynamic world of web development. From coding challenges to communicating with coworkers, Liz will provide valuable tips and lessons learned along the way. Whether you're a student curious about the professional landscape or a seasoned developer seeking new perspectives, this talk offers a candid exploration of the realities of entering the tech industry post-graduation.

Deploying Jakarta EE Applications with Payara Server and Payara Cloud

Payara Server, originally a downstream distribution of the open-source GlassFish server, was created as a compatible replacement after commercial support from GlassFish was dropped in 2014. Payara Services Ltd, formed in 2016, offers innovative application server solutions for hosting mission-critical Jakarta EE applications.

The Payara Platform includes two flavors: Payara Server and Payara Micro. Payara Server is a cloud-native middleware application platform supporting mission-critical production systems with reliable and secure deployments of Jakarta EE. Payara Micro is the lightweight middleware platform for containerized Jakarta EE application deployments.

Payara Cloud, introduced in November 2022, is the next generation of fully-managed cloud native application runtime that offers a flexible and powerful way to easily run Jakarta EE applications in the cloud.

This presentation will provide an introduction to the Payara Platform and Payara Cloud. There will then be a review of a Jakarta EE application and demonstrate how to deploy and execute it locally to Payara Server and Payara Micro, then in the cloud with Payara Cloud.
