Gone are the days when developers held no power! This means companies now need to focus more on what developers want out of a product. In comes Open Liberty, an Open-Source Java runtime that is built for developers. It was first created (open-sourced) around 4 years ago and has been optimised for the cloud-native world providing some of the best performance stats in the industry. In this session I will talk about the benefits of using this Open-Source runtime and demonstrate how easy it is to get started in any environment.
