    What to be aware about memory when running JVM apps in shared-container environments

    Running Java-based applications in shared container-scheduler systems (such as Kubernetes or ECS) is a popular way of running systems nowadays. However doing so often leads to problems - especially around managing memory in a way that is both efficient and not prone to instability.

    In this talk, David Borsos will explore the typical pitfalls of memory configuration when running JVM applications in shared-container environments, the underlying reasons and advice on how to avoid them.

  • It’s AGM time again and this time we will be in the London. The 2019 OSMUK Annual Gathering will be held on Saturday 29 June at Newspeak House in Bethnal Green.

    People will be arriving from near and far, so we’ve arranged kick-off for after lunch. It is very close to Brick Lane so there are ample opportunities for beer, curry, and bagels but not necessarily all three at once. Keep an eye on the @osmuk Twitter account and #osmuk hashtag for informal gatherings. The Directors may be busy setting up the room which is on the ground floor on the other side of the cafe.

    The official AGM will be at 1pm and shouldn’t last more than 30 minutes. We are arranging some speakers for talks and discussions immediately afterwards. Come along to meet fellow mappers from around the country.

    Acceptance Testing in Microservices - Dimos Raptis

    Microservices is being widely adopted as an architectural pattern during the last decade thanks to the business agility it enables. This pattern incentivises teams owning separate business domains to move as independently as possible. However, the need remains to test and verify that all these services will work as expected in cooperation. This can end up being harder at times given there are more moving parts that need to be setup appropriately in order to perform the necessary testing.

    This talk is essentially a story from the trenches, which goes through some of the challenges we faced with testing in a microservices environment and how we overcame some of them.
