Thank you for purchasing the MEAP for Kubernetes Native Microservices: With Quarkus and MicroProfile. To get the most benefit from this book, you’ll want to have enterprise Java skills, like Jakarta EE or Spring.
We have been working with enterprise Java for over 15 years and evolving our skills to keep pace with the industry shift from monoliths to microservices, from Java EE to MicroProfile, and from virtual machines to Kubernetes. We have helped create and evolve MicroProfile as a collection of microservices specifications. We have also helped create and evolve Quarkus as a MicroProfile implementation. More specifically, Quarkus is a MicroProfile implementation that targets containerized applications on Kubernetes specifically.
We often speak at industry conferences, Java Meetups, and participate in various online forums regarding Java, MicroProfile, Quarkus, and Kubernetes. There is a tremendous amount of interest where these technologies all intersect, but a lack of content that discusses how to best use these technologies together and modernize existing skills. Our goal is to demonstrate how to develop Java microservices with Quarkus and MicroProfile that specifically target Kubernetes as a deployment environment.
