The Economies of Scaling Software

Parallelism, load distribution, state management, caching, big data, asynchronous processing, and static content delivery…these are the methodologies that will enable you to build and maintain enterprise-grade Java apps that scale from day one. Learn about all the above as well as leveraging cloud computing and scaling teams in this JAXConf 2013 session with Abdel Remani, open source advocate and platform architect at just.me.

The Play Framework at LinkedIn: Productivity and Performance at Scale

“We’ve found that the Play Framework is one of the few frameworks that is able to maintain the delicate balance of performance, reliability, and developer productivity. In the Java and Scala world, nothing even comes close.” That’s what Yevgeniy (Jim) Brikman, the lead developer bringing the Play Framework to LinkedIn, says in his description of the talk he gave at JAXConf 2013. Check out the video of that presentation, and find out how LinkedIn is using the Play Framework to build front-end and back-end services at massive scale. Filmed by Marakana – www.marakana.com

Node.JS: The Good Parts? A Skeptic’s View – Chris Richardson

Chris Richardson, founder of the original CloudFoundry.com, is a server-side Java developer who wasn’t too thrilled about JavaScript in the browser, let alone on the server. In fact, he might even suggest that we are slaves to JavaScript because people have simply started to accept its weirdness and flaws, much like a Stockholm Syndrome phenomenon. Despite his misgivings, Chris has discovered an appreciation for Node.JS. In this talk from JAXConf 2013, Chris will walk you through the consequences of combining the event-driven programming model with a prototype-based, weakly typed, dynamic language. Ultimately, however, you will learn how to effectively use Node in modern, polyglot applications. Filming courtesy of Marakana – www.marakana.com

Git from the Bits Up – Tim Berglund

Join GitHub trainer and evangelist Tim Berglund for a look at Git, from the bits up. This talk is not for the Git beginner, but a more advanced look at “weird internals stuff” and obscure commands that will reveal a sort of internal API that is there for you to use and help expose you to certain intrinsic software design insights that can be had from looking at Git at this level.”If you want to be that person on the team that’s like the Git Weirdo…you’re gonna need to know this stuff.” – Tim Berglund.

Programming Style and Your Brain – Douglas Crockford

In this talk from JAXconf, Senior JavaScript Architect Douglas Crockford discusses the relationship between programming style and your brain. Session Overview: The systems in our brains that make us vulnerable to advertising and propaganda also influence our programming styles. This talk looks systematically at the development of a programming style that specifically improves the reliability of programs. The examples are given in JavaScript, a language with an uncommonly large number of bad parts, but the principles are applicable to all languages. Filming from Marakana Tech TV.
