Maybe you’ve heard about Quarkus, also known as supersonic, subatomic Java. According to Quarkus.io, it’s a Kubernetes-native Java stack tailored for GraalVM and OpenJDK HotSpot, crafted from the best of breed Java libraries and standards.

To help you learn more, we’ve rounded up 10 talks showing Quarkus in action. These videos will take your Quarkus knowledge to the next level.

1. Introducing Quarkus: A next-generation Kubernetes native Java framework

By Thomas Qvarnstrom and Jason Greene

The goal of Quarkus is to make Java a leading platform in Kubernetes and serverless environments, while offering developers a unified reactive and imperative programming model to optimally address a wider range of distributed application architectures. Learn more in this introduction to the project.

2. Quarkus: Supersonic, subatomic Java

By Burr Sutter

This DevNation Live tutorial demonstrates how to use Quarkus to optimize your enterprise Java apps, your APIs, your microservices, and your serverless functions for a Kubernetes/OpenShift environment that is vastly smaller, faster, and more scalable.

3. Quarkus and GraalVM: Booting Hibernate at supersonic speed, subatomic size

By Sanne Grinovero

In this presentation, you’ll learn how Quarkus was created, how it works, and how it’s able to make complex libraries, such as Hibernate ORM, compatible with GraalVM native images.

4. Taste of serverless application development

By Marthen Luther

This talk shows how to create a simple Java application using Quarkus and deploy it as a serverless application on Knative.

5. Coding that sparks joy with Quarkus

By Edson Yanaga

Create your first Quarkus project and learn why the tool sparks joy in the hearts of developers.

6. The (a) future of Java and containers

By Mark Little

This presentation takes you through the history of Java and explains why Quarkus is a game-changer for the future.

7. Quarkus: Supersonic, subatomic Java

By Dimitris Andreadis

Learn about the benefits of Quarkus, including developer joy, supersonic speed, and best of breed libraries and standards in this overview.

8. Subatomic reactive systems with Quarkus

By Clement Escoffier

Quarkus provides a supersonic development experience and a subatomic execution environment thanks to its integration with GraalVM. This talk is about the reactive side of Quarkus and how to use it to implement reactive and data-streaming applications.

9. Build Eclipse MicroProfile apps quickly with Quarkus

By John Clingan

Combining Eclipse MicroProfile and Quarkus lets developers deliver feature-rich, container-based MicroProfile applications that start in under tens of milliseconds. This talk live-codes a container-based MicroProfile application that is deployed to Kubernetes.

10. Java, turbocharged

By Marcus Biel

This talk demonstrates how to use Quarkus to create super small, super fast Java containers, which can be a game-changer, especially in a serverless environment.
