2021 Breakout Sessions

From Zero to Spring Boot Hero with GitHub Codespaces


Track: Beginner-Friendly Spring

Join us in this 25-minute beginner session where we’ll take you from zero to implementing and running the Spring Boot application using Codespaces.

We’ll guide you through the following aspects:

  • Start your development seamlessly in GitHub Codespaces without installing anything on your local machine.
  • Create a new Spring Boot project using integrated tooling for start.spring.io.
  • Write a REST API using Test Driven Development and the comprehensive Java and Spring support in the online code editor.
  • Run and debug your app—all from within Codespaces.

This is a beginner-oriented session that should empower everyone to write Spring Boot code on a production level. Join us as we discover the powerful integrations of Spring Boot in Visual Studio Code and GitHub Codespaces.
