Visual Studio Code: The Spring Perspective

Track: Programming Tools

Visual Studio Code is rapidly evolving into a complete coding environment for building enterprise-grade and cloud-ready applications using Java and Spring Boot. In this hands-on, live-coding session, we’ll walk the audience through the Java and Spring Boot experience on Visual Studio Code to demonstrate that this environment is ready to be used for this purpose—and has a number of advantages over existing, oftentimes quite heavyweight IDEs. The session will cover basic Java tooling in Visual Studio Code, the Spring Initializr integration, the editor-focused coding support for Spring apps, testing, running, and debugging Spring Boot apps, showing live information from running Spring apps in Visual Studio Code, and running and deploying Spring apps in Docker as well as Kubernetes platforms.
