Architecting for Continuous Delivery & Zero Downtime
Two day on-site intensive hands-on training
Continuous Delivery is all the hype these days. This training makes it a reality. We start with an overview of what Continuous Delivery is and how it can help you. We then quickly dive into the details. You will learn what it takes to architect a Java application so that it can be delivered continuously into production, with code, configuration and database delta, multiple times a day, with Zero Downtime.
Buckle up! This class is intensive and hands-on. You build an entire Java web app to the point where it deploys continuously, with zero downtime. We tackle the hard problems with a battle-tested approach you will be able to apply immediately.
Effective Database Migrations with Flyway
One day on-site training
One day of intensive Flyway instruction. We begin with a quick overview of what problems database migration tools set out to solve. We then quickly move into thorough coverage of everything from Flyway basics to topics like existing project integration, API and build tool plugins. We finally cover more advanced topics like effective test data management, backward compatible migrations and zero-downtime migrations.
This class comes with plenty of hands-on time with Flyway and will take you from complete newcomer status to Flyway competence, or from passing familiarity to Flyway and database migrations expertise.
The focus has been Immutable Infrastructure, Continuous Delivery, Flyway and Boxfuse.
These are the most popular ones.
At 250,000 downloads per year it is one of the most popular tools for database migrations.
Flyway is an open-source database migration tool. It strongly favors simplicity and convention over configuration.
It is based around just 6 basic commands: Migrate, Clean, Info, Validate, Baseline and Repair.
Migrations can be written in SQL (database-specific syntax (such as PL/SQL, T-SQL, ...) is supported) or Java (for advanced data transformations or dealing with LOBs).
It has a Command-line client. If you are on the JVM, we recommend using the Java API (also works on Android) for migrating the database on application startup. Alternatively, you can also use the Maven plugin, Gradle plugin, SBT plugin or the Ant tasks.
And if that not enough, there are plugins available for Spring Boot, Dropwizard, Grails, Play, Griffon, Grunt, Ninja and more!
Supported databases are Oracle, SQL Server, SQL Azure, DB2, DB2 z/OS, MySQL (including Amazon RDS), MariaDB, Google Cloud SQL, PostgreSQL (including Amazon RDS and Heroku), Redshift, Vertica, H2, Hsql Derby and SQLite.
I'm the founder and CEO of Boxfuse GmbH. Boxfuse turns your JVM app into a secure & immutable machine image in seconds, which can be run both on your laptop and in the cloud.
I'm also the founder and project lead of Flyway, the open-source database migration tool.
Additionally I regularly speak at many large international conferences including JavaOne, Devoxx, Jfokus, JavaZone, JAX, ...
