Jessica Kerr introduces Elm, focusing on its architecture: how it overturns what is essential in object-oriented and even back-end functional programming.
Tim Wagner defines server-less computing, examines the key trends and innovative ideas behind the technology, and looks at design patterns for big data, event processing, and mobile using AWS Lambda.
Neville Li and Igor Maravić cover the evolution of Spotify’s event delivery system, discussing lessons learned moving it into the cloud using Scio, a high level Scala API for the Dataflow SDK.
Neha Narkhede explains how Apache Kafka was designed to support capturing and processing distributed data streams by building up the basic primitives needed for a stream processing system.
Martin Kleppmann explores using event streams and Kafka for keeping data in sync across heterogeneous systems, and compares this approach to distributed transactions.
Peter Bakas presents in detail how Netflix has used Kafka, Samza, Docker, and Linux to implement a multi-tenant pipeline processing 700B events/day in the Amazon AWS cloud.
Ned Twigg discusses using RxJava to wrap SWT events, looking at a few simple SWT UI's, and coding them using raw SWT and then again using RxJava.
Gian Merlino discusses stream processors and a common use case - keeping databases up to date-, the challenges they present, with examples from Kafka, Storm, Samza, Druid, and others.
Sebastien Lambla explores how complexity can be reduced to its smallest cohesive parts, communication normalized through evolvable contracts, ReSTful and event-driven interfaces.
Michael Ploed talks about the distributed data management challenges that arise in a microservices architecture and how they can be solved using event sourcing in an event-driven architecture.
Yongsheng Wu talks about how to build highly-resilient systems at scale. Wu presents also failure cases that prompted engineers at Pinterest to build such systems, and how they test these systems.
Shiva Narayanaswamy discusses event driven architectures, serverless architectures, identity management and security related to building APIs in the cloud.
