Team Payara Chooses the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as its Charity of the Year

Payara Services are proud to announce that we’ve chosen the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as our Payara Charity of the Year!

About the Bumblebee Conservation Trust

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns over declining numbers of bumblebees. These insects are not only well-loved but also valued for the way they pollinate crops and wildflowers.

The charity aims to enhance understanding of the work these industrious insects do, why they are declining in numbers and how a diverse range of people can help. They also work to increase the quality and quantity of bumblebee habitats.

Deploy Friday: Move Your Java Microservices to the Cloud with Payara Services

Platform.SH is an end-to-end web platform for agile teams: a PaaS that aims to manage the application and the services that the application needs, such as a database.  Developing close to MicroProfile and Jakarta EE, like Payara Platform, it supports both specifications.

We’re honoured to be guests for the company’s weekly live discussion, hosted on YouTube with live chat. Our engineers Rudy De Busscher and Fabio Turizo will discuss moving your microservices to the cloud with Chad Carlson and Otávio Santana from Platform.SH.

February Release Overview & MicroProfile 4.0

Join Payara engineers for an informative and practical webinar on the recent updates and enhancements to the Payara Platform in the latest release (Payara Platform February Release).

Every month, we answer questions on the most recent release and also discuss a key theme –  this month, it’s MicroProfile 4.0, now fully supported in the Payara Platform Community Edition. We have covered what you can expect from the latest specifications in a blog, but please use this opportunity to ask any questions you might have about MicroProfile and its new iteration.

Full support for MicroProfile 4.0 follows us announcing we are part of the MicroProfile Working Group.   The MicroProfile project was born as a community initiative to optimise Enterprise Java with a microservices standard platform, and the Eclipse Foundation‘s MicroProfile Working Group proposes and gain approval for new common APIs and functionality – in turn drawing on the knowledge of a wide variety of different vendors. As one of the contributors, Payara engineers will shape and drive the future of the MicroProfile specifications.

Seven Steps to Create a Business Plan

So, following on from my last blog about cashflow, I thought it useful to cover a business plan.

There are always opportunities for new businesses. If nothing else, the coronavirus (COVID-19) disruption has given people the time and space they need to be creative and to think of new business ideas.

Additionally, the unreliable employment situation is acting as inspiration for people to make the leap and go it alone.

However, if you’re serious about creating a business, you’ll need a business plan – and lots of advice.
