Fabric8: An Open Source Microservices Platform

Microservices are the wave of the future for Internet technology, partly because they can be tucked out of the way on the “edges” of the public network. Managing microservices is key to their use.

The Video Screening Room

This conference presentation by James Strachan at Devoxx 2016 in Antwerp, Belgium, does a nice job explaining how to create microservices on Fabric8. Strachan is well-known in the open source world as the creator of Apache Camel and Apache Groovy.

The main point I get from this video is that Fabric8 takes the pain out of cloud development. It just works. No wasted time configuring or troubleshooting web services.

If you’re interested in this topic, others involved with Fabric8 include Claus Ibsen and Roland Hub.

For the past 10 years, Phil has been working at a public library in the Washington D.C.-area, helping youth and adults use the 28 public Linux stations the library offers seven days a week. He also writes for MAKE magazine, Opensource.com and TechSoup Libraries. Suggest videos by contacting Phil on Twitter or at pshapiro@his.com.
