In the landscape of modern software development, the fusion of artificial intelligence (AI) and microservices architecture stands as a potent paradigm for creating agile, scalable, and intelligent applications. Quarkus has emerged as a leading platform for building cloud-native microservices with unparalleled speed and efficiency. Integrating AI capabilities into Quarkus-based applications unlocks a new realm of possibilities, from intelligent data processing to real-time decision-making. This workshop invites developers, architects, and AI enthusiasts to delve into the convergence of Quarkus and AI technologies. This hands-on session will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to harness the full potential of Quarkus AI for their projects. Key Workshop Topics: * Introduction to Quarkus: Explore the core principles and features of Quarkus framework, including its lightweight nature, fast boot time, and superior developer experience. * AI Integration with Quarkus: Learn how to seamlessly integrate AI capabilities into Quarkus applications using popular Large Language Models (LLM) such as OpenAI and Ollama * Create endpoints that can retain state between different requests * Enrich the LLM responses with your own provided documents. By the end of the workshop, participants should be ready to build their own AI-powered Quarkus applications and understand the difference between the different LLM offerings that integrate with Quarkus. Join us to accelerate your journey towards next-gen application development.
