What better audience to assess the relative pros and cons of (what Thoughtworks’ Martin Fowler terms) the microservices architectural “style” than developers in the fashion capital of the universe—New York City? Forget for the moment the academic and theoretical. We’re here to show you the real deal—a live introductory demo of “all things microservices.” We’ll combine open source frameworks and technologies—Docker containers, Vert.x, Wildfly Swarm, Spring Boot, NodeJS, .NET, OpenShift, Kubernetes, and more—live and in person. Speaker Bio: Burr Sutter is responsible for Red Hat’s developer experience. Burr is currently an Oracle Java Champion, and was previously president of the Atlanta Java Users Group and founder of the DevNexus conference.
This month, we consider the level of impact open source software/hardware will have on the Internet of Things. Ian Skerrett from the Eclipse Foundation will discuss the role of open source in IoT and how the Eclipse IoT community is building some of the key building blocks for IoT developers. The Eclipse IoT community has over 20 open source projects that implement some of the key IoT standards, like MQTT, CoAP, LWM2M, and IoT frameworks for building IoT gateways, home automation solutions, SCADA solutions and others. Join us to learn about open source in IoT, how developers can take advantage of Eclipse IoT projects, and how to contribute to a new/existing open source project.
As user experience has gained traction and respect inside companies and product development teams, UX people are increasingly participating in more and more strategic conversations. This makes sense: UX people have both unique insight into users and customers as well as a design-driven toolkit for expressing problems and finding solutions. In this talk, Josh will explore the connection between strategy, execution, and user experience work in Agile contexts. Come learn how you can frame a simple, clear strategy of surprising power, and use that strategy to connect each level of your organization around a guiding vision. Presenter Josh Seiden is a designer, author and coach. He is the co-author of Lean UX and the forthcoming book Sense and Respond.
