Planning to build microservices? The best practice of building a first-class Cloud Native Microservice is to follow 12-Factor app.

But how do you fulfil the 12-factor app rules, e.g. how do you externalise the configuration, fault tolerance, etc?    

Come to this session to watch the live coding of building 12-factor microservices using MicroProfile programming mode and get them running Open Liberty and Quarkus. Finally, deploy them to Kubernetes and Istio to see how they function!
