    Part One: What's New with WebSphere & Liberty
    Join us to see what's new for WebSphere!  We will introduce the new IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition that helps you to optimize your application investment and the new capabilities -- Mono2Micro, Transformation Advisor, Cloud Foundry Migration Runtime, Liberty -- included to help you modernize and cloud enable your WebSphere applications and operations. This WebSphere update session will be followed by an optional hands-on workshop on the new AI-infused Mono2Micro tool for refactoring monolithic applications into microservices. 
    Duration: 1 hour


    Part Two: Get hands-on with the new IBM® Mono2Micro™ tool, an AI-Powered Java Monolith to Microservices Transformer
    Of all the variants of application modernization, refactoring to microservices is the hardest, but when properly implemented, provides the maximum ROI.
    Mono2Micro semi-automates the refactoring process using AI and can provide a huge acceleration to and significantly economize the task of moving Java monoliths to containers in the cloud.
    In this hands-on workshop, you will refactor a small but typical Java EE application into deployable microservices via the following steps:
    • monolith code instrumentation
    • generation of runtime traces
    • generation of AI-recommended partitions
    • customization of partitions
    • code generation, and finally
    • the deployment of the partitions as executable microservices in Docker containers
    Duration: 2.5 hours


    We look forward to having you join us!

    Don't miss out!  We have only a few dates left on our WUG Roadshow. 

    Here's what attendees are saying about this year's Roadshow:
    • I really enjoyed the session and got to play with some of the commands. It's a great 'getting the feet wet' exercise.
    • The IBM Mono2Micro session was very hands on, and hit very practical development functions. The ease of the tools during the demonstration made it to where I (not a developer at all) was able to quickly execute and see results. Great job.
    • The Mono2Micro workshop was fantastic. It was well paced and the exercises and presentation hit the mark. It will definitely make it easier to get going on trying on a real app.

    Feel free to sign-up for any date that works for your schedule!

    Hi Joe. 

    Thank you for reaching out.  We can extend one or more of our scheduled Roadshows to your groups, or we can look at dates to see if we can schedule one for your User Groups.  I can look for some time for us to chat about it.
