Hackathon starter pack with Vertx
Thursday, November 23rd @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pmFree
Learn how to build an web application from scratch using the Vertx framework. Vertx is a reactive microservice framework that allows us to quickly put together our own applications, making it an ideal candidate for hackathons and major projects alike. We’ll set up a PostgresSQL database to persist our data, as well as a simple frontend using bootstrap for our users to interact with. This workshop is beginner friendly, basic knowledge of Java will be assumed, knowledge of HTML/CSS/JS/SQL is useful but not required.
