  • Milo van der Zee and Meindert Deen
    Are both senior Java developers. Together they have put Quarkus on the map at Albert Heijn. In their duo presentation, they will talk about the problems that Spring-Boot services can cause if you run them in Kubernetes. And they will show how easy it is to migrate to microprofile, in this case: Quarkus.
