Quarkus was released on March 2019 in a galaxy not too far away (actually Neuch√Ętel, Switzerland) by a team of engineers that dreamed of supercharging Java for Cloud/Kubernetes native deployments, while bringing Joy back to Developers. The Quarkus Logo was also revealed for the first time at Voxxed Days CERN that same year, 100m underground next to the Atlas experiment!
90+ feature releases and 800+ community contributors later, Quarkus has matured, the Quarkus ecosystem has grown with 600+ extensions, however the pace of innovation has not slowed down.
Come to this talk to find out how Quarkus embraces the AI/LLM universe by integrating with the popular langchain4j library, and get ideas for crafting your own intelligent applications!
