Our JUG hosted an interesting and exciting meet-up, a meet-up that surely left the audience with a lot of knowledge to cherish.
This time, we joined Mr. Rajeev Gupta in a hands-on session and dived into Spring Boot, an interesting daemon surfacing in our domain.
Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run".
We took an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries alongside Rajeev and got started with minimum fuss.
