What's the impact of Java 8 on the Java ecosystem and why did we have to wait so long for these improvements? Is the JCP the right tool for driving innovation and do we need a really new version of Java? One that would not need take care of backward compatibility? We met Trisha Gee - a great member of our Java community - in New York to talk about these topics.
Randy Shoup talks about designing and building microservices based on his experience of working at large companies, such as Google and eBay. Topics covered include the real impact of Conway's law, how to decide when to move to a microservice-based architecture, organizing team structure around microservices, and where to focus on the standardization of technology and process.
Martin Kleppmann explains how logs are used to implement systems (DBs, replication, consensus systems, etc), integrating DBs and log-based systems, the relevance of CAP and CRDTs, and much more.

Architecture design is defining the basic structure of our software for now and for the future. But how can this work, given that we are living in an agile world accepting the fact that we only have limited knowledge of our final system? InfoQ was talking with Colin Garlick about architecture design and responsibilities during software development.
Recorded at EclipseCon NA 2015, Jay Jay Billings talks to Alex Blewitt about the recently created Eclipse Science working group, including the challenges involved in data visualisation of petabytes of data and on highly parallel computing that might have hundreds of thousands of processes all processing data.
Neha Narula talks about the latest research and concepts in distributed programming and databases, reducing the overhead of transactions, are multicore systems like distributed systems, and much more.
Recorded at EclipseCon NA 2015, Martin Lippert talks to Alex Blewitt about the Eclipse Flux project, an innovative and incubating sub-project of the Eclipse Cloud project, and how it can be used to provide a Google Docs experience for code across desktop and cloud-based IDEs, along with potential inclusion within other Cloud based editing tools.
