Location: Salon A
April 18th, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Keeping up with the pace of change in emerging technology is an ever present challenge for enterprises. Trying to build systems that age and evolve gracefully over time is not a small task. We are all familiar with frameworks that help us implement architectural patterns, especially application architecture. In this session we will investigate Lagom, a new class of framework designed for system building, specifically, Reactive Systems. I will discuss common challenges I've encountered implementing large scale Reactive Systems and review Lagom features designed to address these challenges head-on. Though an investigation of this Scala-based framework, we will learn how

Applied Distributed Research in Apache Cassandra

Location: Salon B
April 18th, 2017
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

The popular nosql database Cassandra eschews a master/slave partitioning design in favor of a fully peer-to-peer model which makes it robust and scalable but adds significant complexity to some areas of its design. I will explain the challenges and successes Cassandra has had in creating lightweight transactions, materialized views, and strongly consistent cluster membership within this peer-to-peer paradigm.

Automating at a Higher Level with Atomist

Location: Salon C
April 18th, 2017
10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

As developers, we automate. We automate other work, and sometimes we automate our own. We save typing with templates or IDEs. We save searching out information with Slack integrations. Many companies have custom internal bots to tie together chat, version control, and build servers. Most companies can't and shouldn't dedicate whole teams to streamlining development. And they shouldn't have to. Atomist is building programmable developer automation, from typing code to tracking status. Keep your code up-to-date with automated pull requests and generators. Keep yourselves up-to-date with mini-dashboards in chat that correlate commits with builds,complete with action buttons to cut down

Location: Salon C
April 19th, 2017
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

When @WalmartLabs built Electrode, the React/Node.js application platform that powers the Walmart.com customer experience, performance was one of our primary concerns. React’s use of a virtual DOM and support for server-side rendering have earned it a reputation for speed, but in building our platform we encountered several unexpected performance bottlenecks. In this talk, we’ll discuss the problems we found and how we solved them.

Location: Salon E
April 19th, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

In this talk, Ken Rimple shows you how to use various reactive APIs in Angular to provide a gaming platform. His Drum Legend game, which gamifies drum rudiment practice, uses WebMidi, WebAudio, RxJS, NGRX Store, NGRX Effects and NGRX DevTools to provide an audio chain for synthesis and sample triggering, and NGRX Store / Effects to provide the observable-based state for tracking the game as it moves through various levels. Ken's Angular ng-audio-chain, ng-webaudio-synthesis and ng-webaudio-drum-machine libraries and ng-midi-interface libraries for interfacing with MIDI, playing sounds and samples will be used.

Building Better Teams to Build Better UX

Location: Salon E
April 18th, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Today's business and technology leaders understand that a good user experience (UX) is a leading factor in product success and customer happiness. Popular dogma says that cross-functional, autonomous agile teams are the way to achieve great UX -- but this isn't always true. This panel of designers, developers, and tech leaders will discuss the sources of bad UI, what the biggest helpers and inhibitors are to successful cross-functional collaboration, and what leaders should (and should not) do to help.

Building data breach and subpoena resistant applications

Location: Salon B
April 19th, 2017
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Now is the time for a new approach to protect the covenant between an application’s owners and its users. Present threats are too numerous and varied and the battlefield too complex to defend with existing methods. In particular, technical defenses have limited effectiveness against non-technical attacks. The techniques presented here protect against attacks on all fronts, including from within where a privileged operator is compromised. Together, we’ll examine an application based on cryptography and messaging that sets a new expectation for data security.

Building for Operability: Stateful Applications in Containers with the Autopilot Pattern

Location: Salon D
April 19th, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Despite the hype, deploying and running these containers in the real world is still a challenge. Today's container frameworks force developers to compensate for many surprisingly restrictive operational constraints. Teams adopt containers only for stateless services, leaving behind many of their advantages in improving operability for the entire stack. The Autopilot Pattern is a powerful design concept to address these problems. By moving the responsibility for handling events such as startup, shutdown, scaling, and recovery from the framework into the application, we can build intelligent architectures that maximize developer flexibility and minimize the need for human operational intervention. Better still,

Clojure spec: Expressing Data Constraints without Types

Location: Salon B
April 19th, 2017
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Clojure programs are built from a small number of generic immutable data structures combined with a large number of pure functions that manipulate these generic data types. The Clojure development experience is characterized by a rapid, dynamic, and interactive REPL-driven experience. Clojure's new spec library enhances Clojure by providing a system for stating concrete declarative specifications for your data and functions. Because the specifications are based in the same language as the program, they are expressive and concrete. Specs are fully integrated with Clojure and can be used within your programs for validation, documentation, destructuring, instrumentation, data generation, and automatic

From Bleeding Edge to State of the Art: One Year with Angular

Location: Salon D
April 18th, 2017
10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

It may be 2017, but it hasn't become any easier to choose the right JavaScript framework for your project or organization. Although there are a few nascent contenders like Vue.js and Cycle.js, the "framework wars" of 2017 mainly pit Facebook's juggernaut React against Google's powerhouse Angular, which faced controversy after a decision to completely rewrite the framework after version 1. But at NPR, we decided to take a chance on Angular. On March 31st, 2016, we launched a production webapp built with Angular version 2, which was still in beta at the time; the final, stable release of v2.0 went

2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Property-based testing is as close to a panacea as we are likely to get in the software industry. Whether you're someone who loves writing tests or someone who finds testing tedious, identifying and testing the properties and invariants of your code can produce more useful (and more interesting) tests. This talk will briefly cover what property-based testing is and how to do it, followed by an in-depth look into how property-based testing actually works. You will leave this talk armed with an understanding of how the "magic" happens, and with the knowledge necessary to start hacking on a property-based testing

Getting Swifty: A Tale From the Front Lines of Breaking Changes and Legacy Code

Location: Salon A
April 19th, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Learning a new language is what we do as engineers. It’s fun, it’s reinvigorating, and it’s challenging. But it’s not often that you learn a brand new language and then implement it side by side in a code base with another language. Especially when the other language is sad because it knows you’e replacing it and it doesn’t want to play nice with the new guy. At URBN, we made a decision to write Swift for all new code even though Swift wasn’t (still isn’t) stable & several of our apps were 100% Objective-C. There were challenges, like learning a

When you think of a developer what comes to mind? A brogrammer living in San Francisco working 23 hours a day on the next Facebook? If so, you wouldn’t be alone. Like so many industries, software development is rife with stereotypes. And one that is particularly pervasive is the idea that all developers, if given the chance, would opt for a complete rewrite of an application. While it’s true that there are many software developers who do enjoy starting with a clean slate, there is also a group who loves working on making existing applications better.

Moving Past the Scaling Myth

Location: Salon B
April 19th, 2017
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

One of the biggest challenges in systems development is scaling. We want to scale vertically, horizontally, and organizationally. Sometimes we even want to scale our processes. Why is it so hard? In many cases, it is because we want to find structures that work well at all scales. When we can’t we call it failure and seek a different structure. In this talk, Michael Feathers will examine the notion of scale variant structuring and what systems design could look like if we dropped the assumption that that structural reorganization at different scales should not be necessary.

Poet and critic Paul Valéry got to the heart of the relationship between art and business when he wrote, in 1922, “[For lovers of perfection], a work is never finished...but abandoned,” the act of abandonment being “the result of weariness or an obligation to deliver.” We software developers are, in the main, lovers of perfection--and we are subject to both weariness and pressure to deliver, forces that militate against at least some of our aspirations to perfection in our work. In one sense, software must be perfect--it must run flawlessly--or it is nothing. But practitioners of the art of programming

Serverless Architectures

Location: Salon D
April 19th, 2017
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Cloud computing has reduced engineering costs and improved delivery effectiveness drastically over the last decade, but new systems and features can still see lead times of weeks or months even for a prototype release, and operations costs are still often inefficiently managed. Modern approaches in cloud computing, including the new area of serverless architectures, tackle both of these concerns. Serverless architectures are those that incorporate third-party backend-as-a-service (BaaS) products into the application, or that use functions-as-a-service (FaaS) platforms, like AWS Lambda, to run server-side code in fully managed, event-driven, ephemeral containers. By using these ideas such architectures remove much of

The Swift Melting Pot

Location: Salon A
April 19th, 2017

When the Swift programming language was released people argued about what sort of language it was. "It's functional," some argued and then criticized it for not being functional enough. "It's OO," others scoffed and then bemoaned the features they longed for from Objective-C. "It's a Protocol Oriented language," said Apple at the famous Crusty talk at their annual developers conference. In this fast-paced technical talk, we look at code examples that demonstrate how you can write better, more readable, more idiomatic Swift by embracing and incorporating aspects of all three of these paradigms and more in your Swift code."
