Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone Spring-based applications that you can ‘just run’. It uses a ‘convention over configuration’ approach to get you up and running in no-time, while offering all Spring features that you have grown fond of in the past years. In this session this is demonstrated by live-coding a Spring Boot application that will ‘just work’. But audience beware, this is not your standard ‘live-coding session’. Attendees will have a vital say in the session’s content by defining the application’s requirements.

Do you want a simple task planner? Or track your favorite movies? It's up to you! Should it use MongoDB or Couchbase? You decide! Do you want an Angular front-end with a RESTful back-end or do you prefer a classic web app with Thymeleaf templates? It's your call! Seriously.
This session is intended for Java software engineers with an interest in Spring Boot. Some Spring experience could come in handy, but is not strictly necessary. After this session, you will know enough to start your own Spring Boot project.
