About a decade ago, when the world was still all about J2EE and WebSphere application servers, Rabobank introduced a new Online platform with a custom, intentionally self-built, portal framework. Since then our world has changed in many ways. Nobody does portlets anymore; instead we build rich front-end applications backed by services spitting out JSON. Like most of the rest of the world Rabobank moved from waterfall to Agile to DevOps. Microservices came along. Java is no longer the only preferred language on the server. Today, Rabobank is migrating to a new platform based on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, that intends to cope with all these changes. In this talk Vincent Oostindië will talk you through a decade of IT at Rabobank Online, of course focusing on the new platform and the underlying technologies used there, like Spring Boot and Spring Cloud Services.
Bio Vincent: Vincent Oostindië is business architect at Rabobank for the Online department, which consists of about 30 DevOps teams. Vincent is responsible for the overall architecture of the Online channels, like the public websites, the secure websites, and the app. Vincent has been working at Rabobank since 2010, always at the Online department. Coming in a Java developer/architect, he transitioned from there to team lead, to solution architect and product owner, to platform architect, to business architect today.
