Developer Joy

Beyond simply working, we’re aiming for Joy.

Quarkus is not just about being great for writing Web Applications or Micro-Services. We’re focusing on more than the feature set: we make sure that every feature works well, simply, with little to no configuration, in the most intuitive way possible. It should be trivial to develop simple things, and easy to develop the more complex ones.

Live Coding

Unified Config

Gone are the days of a thousand configuration files and formats. A single configuration file is all it takes for Quarkus applications to configure every single extension.


Quarkus focuses on the simplest and most useful way to use a given feature, trimming it to its most useful essence. This includes upfront analysis on how to best use a feature and guiding you in what we think is the best way to do things.
