Java developers who start with front-end these days have a tough time choosing and adapting to the front-end landscape due to the plethora of different choices available. In this talk, I will walk you through different aspects to consider when choosing between Angular, React & VueJS and will also show how to quickly start being productive with these by using tools like JHipster, Angular-CLI & create-react-app. I will talk about my experience building Angular & React support in JHipster and how you can apply common patterns and use Typescript to apply your Java Knowledge in the front end world.
With more than 400 contributors, JHipster gets new features at a very high rate, and it can be hard to keep up with everything! This session is here to detail what's new and noteworthy in JHipster 5, our latest release to date, by the two lead developers of the project.
We'll talk about Spring Boot 2, React and Angular support... But also code refactoring, security, caching and scalability!
We will finish this session with our roadmap for the rest of the year.
