Spring Boot Developer


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 us  recommended if you have a good working knowledge of Spring Basics  (see Prerequisites) but are new to Spring Boot.
