JHipster Conf 2 will take place in Paris, France on June 27th, 2019

The conference will have one English track and one French track

JHipster Conf 2 is the first conference on JHipster, the most widely-used Java application generator in the world.

This conference will gather the main JHipster developers, who will present technical sessions on the parts they have each developed.

We will also have sessions on Open Source and the usage of JHipster in startups and big companies.

This conference is organized by Ippon Technologies. Please note that we don't aim to make any money from the conference, and any benefits will be donated to the JHipster Open Collective.

09:45 - 10:30 A JHipster story: The impact of collaboration
Building upon the medium story: https://medium.com/@ernesto_31246/a-thank-you-letter-to-the-jhipster-team-7397ad8a09fb and following up on recent events, we want to tell how an open-source collaborative project like JHipster have started a positive chain of events for us and has touched people around us deeply. Additionally, we want to share how thanks to JHipster our learning and building processes have been boosted which has allowed us to be more creative as product owners and deliver on time projects with high quality for a lower cost.

13:40 - 14:25 What the Heck Are OAuth and OIDC?
OAuth is not an API or a service: it is an open standard for authorization and any developer can implement it. OAuth is a standard that applications can use to provide client applications with “secure delegated access”. OAuth works over HTTPS and authorizes devices, APIs, servers, and applications with access tokens rather than credentials, which we will go over in depth below. OpenID Connect (OIDC) is built on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. It allows clients to verify the identity of the user and to obtain their basic profile information. This session covers how OAuth 2.0 and OIDC work, when to use them, and frameworks/services that simplify authentication.

14:30 - 15:15 JHipster Beyond CRUD - API-First for Enterprises
Intesys has been using JHipster for more than two years as the core component of its API-First enterprise backend services. We will show you how to combine the benefits of the JHipster CRUD stack along with the OpenAPI-generated endpoints, seamlessy integrating JHipster with custom single page applications, mobile apps and legacy microservices. We will also share some best practices regarding the evolution of JHipster projects used in production, how to find the extension points and how to take advantage of modules and blueprints.

15:20 - 16:05 Kotlin Hipster and Blueprints
Kotlin with its sweet syntax makes it easy to write JVM-based applications. Come let us take a deep dive into the world of Kotlin-based JHipster and sneak peek into blueprints. Blueprints are the natural evolution of the JHipster projects. This talk will focus on How to create, maintain, and contribute to the JHipster ecosystem via the blueprints.

16:35 - 17:20 JHipster side-by-side in practice
As presented in the very first JHipster Conf in 2018, a good way to keep JHipster generated applications able to upgrade is a technique called side-by-side. Instead of rewriting generated code, the developer can just use some tricks to extend these and do all the custom code in separated components. While the first talk was giving a brief introduction into this coding style, this talk will focus on some details. In particular:
- how to extend the spring code, like POJOs, services, repositories and rest-controllers
- how to do angular side-by-side in different levels of extension
This talk will be highly practical with a main focus on live coding.

17:25 - 18:10 Extending JHipster with Spring Cloud Kubernetes
After working at Activiti Cloud for a year and a half, we have learnt some valuable lessons around K8s and how Spring Cloud can help us to get there easily. During this session we will be looking at how to extend your JHipster Microservices to not only run inside K8s but also how to leverage and extend the infrastructure.

18:15 - 19:00 JHipster in a Mobile World: From Generation to the App Store
With new and improved generators for Ionic and React Native, along with Progressive Web App support, JHipster can help kickstart your mobile applications. In this talk, I will cover the mobile generators that JHipster supports, including pros/cons of each, and comparisons with JHipster's Angular/React clients. I will then demonstrate how to generate a React Native app for your existing JHipster backend, generate several entities, and deploy to the App Store.
