Course Overview
Hi, my name's Dustin Schultz, and welcome to my course, Spring Boot: Efficient Development, Configuration, and Deployment. I'm a huge fan of the Spring Framework, and I've been developing Spring applications for almost ten years. Spring Boot is a fresh, new approach that makes developing with the Spring Framework fun, easy, and productive. In this course, we're going to go beyond the basics of Spring Boot and learn how you can take full advantage of all of its features. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include: quickly getting started with Spring Initializer, and learning how to use the Spring Boot support within your IDE. We'll understand the details behind app enable auto configuration, and we'll even learn to write our own auto configurations. We'll utilize the power of app configuration properties to externalize our application configuration, and we'll also learn how to deploy our Spring Boot apps in a cloud agnostic manner using Docker. By the end of this course, you're going to be knowledgeable beyond the basics of Spring Boot, and you'll understand how you can make full utilization of it. Before beginning this course, you should have a good familiarity with the Spring Framework, with Maven, and have had at least an introduction to Spring Boot. I hope you'll join me in learning Spring Boot at Pluralsight, with the course, Spring Boot: Efficient Development, Configuration, and Deployment.
