Pivotal Spring Boot Developer

Download Course Description


2 days


Building on the benefits of the Spring framework, Spring Boot represents  the next chapter in Java development. Spring Boot’s opinionated  approach removes much of the boilerplate and configuration that  characterizes Spring, making development faster and deployment easier.   

This course offers experience with Spring Boot and its major features,  including auto-configuration, data access, Actuator, and more. On  completion, participants will have a foundation for creating  enterprise-ready applications.   

Please note that this course is a subset of the material in our 4 day Core Spring course - there is no need to take both courses. This course is recommended if you have a good working knowledge of Spring Basics (see Prerequisites) but are new to Spring Boot.

Who should attend this training

Application developers who want to increase their understanding of Spring Boot and its major features.
