Join us in this free fast-paced 2-hour "Spring Boot" Masterclass Taster with a Spring expert and CTO of Trifork Amsterdam, Joris Kuipers. During this session, you'll be given a practical introduction to Spring Boot.

The taster consists of both presentations and demos as well as hands-on exercises and covers the following topics:

• Overview to explain what Spring Boot is and the functionality it provides
• Creating a new project using the Spring Initializr
• Building and running your project from your IDE or the command line
• Spring Boot autoconfiguration
• Spring Boot starter dependencies
• Ways to provide configuration to your spring boot application, including the use of @ConfigurationProperties and relaxed binding

** All topics and much more are covered in-depth in the 4-day "Core Spring" Masterclass - https://www.gotoacademy.nl/collections/spring **

For this taster, the prerequisite is that you have some basic Spring experience already, especially in using it for dependency-injection using component scanning and @Configuration classes.

Note that for the full Core Spring masterclass in-depth knowledge of Spring is NOT the requirement as the course starts from scratch and only requires experience with Java as an enterprise programming language!
