Masterclass Taster with Joris Kuipers


Join Us

As part of a collaborative initiative, Trifork and GOTO have organised a series of free taster events with GOTO experts and Trifork Software Engineers & Architects, leading up to the GOTO Academy’s masterclass week in September. This week will consist of back-to-back virtual masterclasses with some of the biggest names in the software industry!

Please note: The taster sessions have limited spots available so you need to request your spot in advance.

About the event

Join us in this fast-paced 2-hour Spring masterclass taster, led by Trifork Amsterdam CTO 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 **

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 Spring Boot masterclass in-depth is NOT the requirement as the course starts from scratch and only requires experience with Java as an enterprise programming language!
