  • Abstract

    The ease of deployment of cloud-based systems and the availability of open source integration components allows the creation of frameworks where the business analyst has become the programmer. This seems to be the evolution of programming. How did we get here?

    This presentation describes the experiences obtained while working on an IPaaS (integration platform as a service) called Syndesis. Syndesis is a cloud-native application with a microservice architecture leveraging Docker, Kubernetes, and Camel. It can be installed to public as well as private clouds.

    I will focus on the development processes of Syndesis itself (which was heavily UX first) as well as the costs and benefits of developing on Kubernetes. I will cover the design choices made to facilitate a globally distributed team to be able to work independently. By leveraging Camel Components for integration routes, we created a working platform fast, but we had to solve a number of CI-related problems. I will also highlight the benefits of a jsonDB for UI development.

    The end product creates an integration that is a container deployed to the Kubernetes infrastructure. The presentation concludes with a short demo of creating and deploying an integration.
