Quarkus is said to be a Supersonic Subatomic Java toolkit. But what does this mean? This course explains what Quarkus is so you can decide if it's suited for your project.

What you'll learn

The world of Java frameworks to build applications and microservice is already rich: and Quarkus is yet another one. In this course, Quarkus: Fundamentals, you'll learn Quarkus and what makes it different from other Java toolkits. First, you'll discover what Quarkus is, what it does, where it comes from, and what purposes it solves. Next, you'll discover its internal architecture, how it works, and what technical benefits it brings. Then, nothing better than a demo that goes from bootstrapping a Quarkus application to running it on a Docker container. Finally, you'll learn the pros and cons of Quarkus, discover its vast ecosystem, and the way it compares with other frameworks. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the knowledge needed to decide if Quarkus is suited to your next Java project.
