Tim Ward speaks to InfoQ about Bndtools, a means of building OSGi solutions in Eclipse using a code-first approach. Bndtools provides a means to build, test, automatically version and deploy bundles. By providing a bundle-on-save action, Bndtools can automatically create the build JAR and (re)deploy it into a running framework, giving one of the shortest development cycles available in IDEs today.
Adam Ernst talks about how functional programming and immutable data structures have made Facebook’s iOS app much easier to test and debug. By decoupling the data pipeline from the UI objects, and minimising the wrk on the UI thread, the application has become easier to test and suffers less bugs than when the UI was generated procedurally.
Enyo Kumahor talks about how frugal innovation and adoption of simple, sensible technology solutions are making a difference in Africa. She also discusses the role of women in technology on the continent.
Yoni Goldberg explains Gilt's architecture which consists of 350+ microservices, how teams decide the scope of a microservice, API design and management, monitoring, Scala at Gilt and much more.
Dave McCrory explains how he coined the term 'data gravity', and how he expects the rise of data related microservices to deal with its consequences. He also gives an overview of Basho's Riak version 2, and what else can be expected from that platform in nearby releases.
Juergen Hoeller has been leading the development of the Spring core framework for over 10 years. In this interview, we get a glimpse of the passion and the insight that drive Spring. Some of the topics covered include Spring 4, adoption of Java 8, moving Spring forward, Spring Boot, enterprise features, Spring XD, and much more.
TJ VanToll explains hybrid development for mobile apps: reasons to choose hybrid over native and vice versa, issues with web views for mobile apps, cross compilation vs web apps, and much more.
Zaana Howard joins InfoQ to discuss Design Thinking and how it differs from how we traditionally look at design.
The OSGi enRoute toolchain provides an end-to-end platform for developing and testing OSGi applications, based around the bnd library that is used in most OSGi build chains such as Maven and Gradle. As well performing dependency analysis and resolution, it uses git and Travis to perform automated server side builds. InfoQ caught up with Peter Kriens at QConNY 2014 to find out more.
In this interview, recorded at QCon New York, Adrian Cockcroft talks to Charles Humble about agility, implementing DevOps, the differences between Microservices and conventional SOA, the strengths of weaknesses of micro service architecture, and approaches for building resilience into highly-distrubuted systems.
