I am an Engineer at SmartThings, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I try to be an active member of the local development community as well as an open source contributor. I am very interested in creating code that is easy to maintain and share not only within a team but in the broader community as well.
I am a Ratpack core team member and I have a number of Ratpack applications in production currently.
In this workshop we will go from 0 to running a non trivial application with Ratpack. And when I say "we", I mean you!
You will need a laptop and Java 8 installed.
We will touch on as many of following as time permits: Getting started, Handlers, The Context, Renderers, Testing, Error handling, Blocking operations, Metrics.
The format will be a brief introduction of concepts then attendees will implement functionality to get existing tests for these concepts to pass.
