Welcome to the winter semester 2020/21

The welcome of the new students for the winter semester 2020/21 will take place slightly differently this year than usual due to the restrictions caused by the Corona Pandemic. Since the courses for students in the first semester of the Bachelor's programs do not start until November 2, 2020, we offer introductory days separately for each program and in small groups in the last week of October.

Guest talk: Quarkus, a framework for developing micro services in Java (23 October 2019)

At 13:30 in lecture room H.1.3, Harald Pehl, senior software engineer at Red Hat and graduate of our Faculty (in 1999) talks about Quarkus, a new open source framework to develop micro services and cloud native applications with Java.

Quarkus supports modern standards such as MicroProfile and adds support for many popular libraries such as Hibernate, vert.x or RESTEasy. Quarkus has minimal memory requirements and extremely fast startup times. One goal of Quarkus is to make Java fit for Kubernetes and server-less environments. The talk offers an introduction to Quarkus and the concepts used.

Using examples and live coding, you will see how Quarkus can be used from Maven Archetype to deployment in OpenShift.
