Agile methodologies have had us moving away from Big Up Front Design to evolutionary, emergent design. But how does that work in the real world?
JAX London 2013 Keynote: A programmer’s perspective on the Internet of Things, reactive development, the hacker ethic, and how we can open up software development, making and craft to the masses. This talk features a live presentation of a home-made, modified Internet of Things. And robots. Audience participation… mandatory! (Filmed at JAX London 2013).
Much has been made of scalability as a driver for choosing a database, but the choice of a database influences much more than the scaling architecture. Different database choices drive different data models which in turn influence the development process. In this talk, Dwight Merriman, founder and CEO of 10gen and a core MongoDB committer, draws on his experiences from DoubleClick, where he was founder and CTO, as well as his experiences founding Gilt Groupe, ShopWiki, and Business Insider, to discuss how the influence of the database on the development process and how making the right database choices can allow agile development. This keynote was filmed at JAX London 2013.
Whether we’re talking Analytics, Big Data, Cloud, NoSQL, Continuous Integration and Deployment, Mobile computing or Minecraft, Java is at the nexus of the mass convergence of trends we’re currently seeing in tech. It’s still fashionable in Web developer circles to dismiss Java the language, but its not going anywhere, and the JVM as we know it goes from strength to strength. In this talk, James Governor looks to put the return of Java into context, with both stories, and quantitative data.
In this JAX London 2013 Keynote, Jamie Allen discusses best practices for using Lambdas in Java and other JVM-based languages, and shows how we can make these constructs more usable in production. He also reviews concepts associated with lambdas to make sure everyone is on the same page, such as closures, higher order functions and the relationship between methods and functions and how they relate to Lambdas.
When you send a package through FedEx it goes through a tracked, automated process to ensure the package arrives promptly at the destination. The same should apply to every commit you make. Continuous delivery describes how this process can be made fully automated and transparent. Yevgeni Kabanov (Zero Turnaround) shows you how your commits can be “FedExed” to production on application servers like JBoss, Tomcat, Weblogic and others with the help of Jenkins and Live Rebel. Filmed at W-JAX in Munich.
Catch Jeff Sussna’s keynote from W-JAX. Filmed at W-JAX in Munich. We are witnessing dramatic changes in business in general and IT in particular. Cloud computing, social networking, and the IoT are replacing already complicated systems with ones that are even more complex. The need for business agility is requiring IT to shift its focus from efficiency to adaptability. Society as a whole is moving from a product-based to a service-based economy, and pulling IT along with it. These trends necessitate fundamental changes in the kinds of solutions we provide, and the practices we use to provide them.
