Students Gain Cutting Edge “Spring Framework” Knowledge:
This past December (2017), MUM Computer Science Professor Payman Salek attended the “SpringOne Platform Conference” in San Francisco, which is the most significant conference on Spring Framework and related technologies.
With 2800+ attendees, 145+ talks, 200+ speakers, 32 keynotes, and 43 sponsors, SpringOne Platform 2017 was “simply amazing!” He also did the intense two-day, pre-conference training on “Spring Cloud.”
According to Professor Salek, “The conference became an inspiration for me to come back and share the knowledge with students and faculty. I have created a report about the talks and topics I learned in the conference, and also just gave a one-week seminar on “Advanced Spring Framework Topics” to MSCS students at MUM during the winter break. Seventeen students signed up and spent their last week of winter break learning about new Spring Framework features.”
In the student seminar, the following advanced topics were covered:
- Spring Boot, Under the Hood
- Spring Boot Actuator
- Spring Cloud Services
- Refactoring the Monolith into Microservices
- Circuit Breakers and Service Discovery
- Load Balancing and External Configuration
- Introduction to Spring 5.0 and Reactive Programming
“Students seemed excited about learning these new topics as much as I was excited to share this knowledge with them!”
The knowledge of Spring Framework gained by Professor Salek has been shared with MSCS students in a recent week long seminar. This knowledge will also be included in existing Enterprise Architecture courses at MUM.
