In this talk Joris will share several real-life failure cases concerning running Spring applications in production. Examples include services being killed because of health check issues, Micrometer metrics getting lost, circuit breakers never closing after opening, OOM errors caused by unbounded queues and other nightmarish scenario’s. Not only will you come to understand how these problems could sneak through staging to make their way to production, you will also be given practical tips on how to avoid these things from happening to your own applications. Otto von Bismarck famously said “Fools say that they learn by experience. I prefer to profit by others’ experience”. Don’t be a fool, and profit by attending this talk!
