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.
