The program will be as usual:

18:00 – Door open and pizza (and beer) is served

19:00 – Quick project dev environment setup using boilerplate picker. \ Maxim Andrews

As a software engineering consultant, I must be able to set up the right development environment I need for a project which would have a clean code, ready for tests and would save my client time and money. The boilerplate picker with underlying modules perfectly solves this problem. In the heart of boilerplate picker is the module “fullstack-scripts” which is used by all the boilerplates. It provides with all necessary tools to have a rational and efficient development environment including automatic configuration of “webpack” and Hot Module Replacement plugin. The boilerplate picker helps you quickly select proper boilerplate with different variations of technologies like React, Redux, Router, SASS, LESS, Postcss, SSR, Koa.js, non-js backend using a reverse proxy, etc. Therefore, you will end up only with those technologies installed and configured the ones you need for your project avoiding any mess.

19:45 – All about Data Streams and how you can do it too! // Srushtika Neelakantam

Streaming data is evidently taking over the way user applications consume data. The realtime nature of streaming data allows developers to create data-centric applications that are critically dependant on the speed at which this data arrives from the source to the processing site. Data speed thus serves to be the primary driving force of the business. However, if you are spending enormous resources on creating amazingly useful data, figuring out how to actually stream and distribute your data and building an architecture that realizes the worth of your data and the realtime requirement of it, is often a huge challenge, technologically.

In this talk, we’ll understand what data streams are and learn under-the-hood technical concepts that are part of this fairly new way of sharing data across applications and businesses. Further, we’ll see how you can solve the streaming data distribution problem, that ensures interoperability and scalability with least effort.
