PRO WORKSHOP: AI, Bots, and Search
With artificial intelligence (AI) and bots factoring heavily on the minds of many enterprises, common sense about providing quality information access within the enterprise can often get lost in the hype cycle. What AI and machine learning techniques are ready for the enterprise? Are bots just another input mechanism for enterprise search or are they a paradigm shift in how users ask questions? Ingersoll presents use cases on where machine learning and bot technology shine, where the trusty ol' search box still reigns, and how the three can be effectively combined into a modern search Architecture.

PRO WORKSHOP: Managing Blockchain Networks with Microservices and Microgateways
Blockchain technologies typically expose their capabilities through a series of APIs. Web3.js, Node.js, REST, and other approaches are used to provide external applications with access to the blockchain. However, one cannot simply open these low-level APIs to everyone – the APIs often need to be wrapped with microservices and microgateways to provide controlled access and management. Join this session to see how microservices and API microgateways can be used with blockchain technology to provide these capabilities in the enterprise.

PRO WORKSHOP: Monitoring Unknown Unknowns with AI
Despite the fact that modern DevOps teams have multiple monitoring tools, hundreds of metrics instrumented and are capturing billions of data points...downtime still happens. What if instead of implementing more monitoring, we bring forward a future where DevOps teams can augment AI capabilities? In this talk, veteran DevOps engineer Guy Fighel dissects a few real world examples where not knowing what you don't know led to massive outages and service disruptions. He'll explore how despite the fact that modern DevOps teams have multiple monitoring tools, hundreds of metrics instrumented and are capturing billions of data points...downtime still happens. How about instead of implementing more monitoring, we bring forward a future where DevOps teams can augment their existing tooling with AI and machine learning to draw richer correlations across events, metrics and logs to surface insights about threats to uptime that aren't even being monitored. Or put another way, how DevOps teams can get closer to a state of "known knowns!” We will review open source available libraries and concepts, differences between ML algorithms and what are the best suited for the job, expert systems and overall approaches for infrastructure monitoring. This talk is all based on personal hands on experience and is not a sales pitch of any kind.

Why Does Security Matter For DevOps?
This talk begins by exploring the answer to the question, why does DevOps matter? Business do what they need to do to survive and succeed. If their customers need agility, then they will evolve to accommodate that. Next, key differences between the pre-DevOps world and the post-DevOps world are discussed. Before, it was about on-premise, protecting the perimeter, and enforcing gates in the SDLC. Now, supply chain is king. Applications and APIs matter more and more. And everything is mobile. A detailed look at 10 companies "killing it at DevOps" reveals that for agile companies, security is a strategic business driver. It prevents unplanned work and re-work, and security requirements are explicitly specified during the sales process as part of vendor security assessments. Additional drivers also include avoiding bad press and compliance reasons - both of which, if you look under the covers, are ultimately about getting more sales. This presentation analyzes the actual language in Bill Gates' Trustworthy Computing memo to see that in fact even Microsoft's "noble" initiative was "all about the money." That being said, what's a security professional to do? BSIMM has 113 controls, ISO27017 has 121, and CCM has 133. It's enough to make a person's brain explode. This session concludes with expert recommendations on how to think about security for DevOps in a way that aligns with a modified version of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The 5 points (Identify, Prevent, Detect, Respond, and Recover) are simplified down to just 3 (Identify, Prevent, and React) and the end of the session covers detailed recommendations on how to incorporate practical security concepts into a DevOps environment using this uncomplicated framework.

PRO WORKSHOP: The Operating System for AI - How Microservices and Serverless Computing Enable the Next Generation of Machine Intelligence
You’ve trained machine learning models on your data, but how do you put them into production? When you have tens of thousands of model versions, each written in any mix of frameworks (R/Java/Ruby/SciKit/Caffe/Tensorflow on GPUs etc) and exposed as REST API endpoints, and your users love to chain algorithms and run ensembles in parallel… how do you maintain a latency less than 20ms on just a few servers?

AI has been a hot topic lately, with advances being made constantly in what is possible, but there has not been as much discussion of the infrastructure and scaling challenges that come with it. At Algorithmia, we’ve built, deployed, and scaled thousands of algorithms and machine learning models, using every kind of framework (from scikit-learn to tensorflow). We’ve seen many of the challenges faced in this area, and in this talk I’ll share some insights into the problems you’re likely to face, and how to approach solving them.

In brief, we’ll examine the need for, and implementations of, a complete “Operating System for AI” – a common interface for different algorithms to be used and combined, and a general architecture for serverless machine learning which is discoverable, versioned, scalable and sharable.

WORKSHOP: Regtech - Legally Compliant Blockchain Development
The rise of distributed ledger technology, principally that of the blockchain, has seen the start of a boom the likes of which was last witnessed during the .com revolution. Developers, ever so in high demand, have found themselves in the epicenter of the blockchain revolution, especially those with a sound knowledge of cryptography. However, caution needs to be exercised during this modern day gold rush, and due to the high level of responsibility undertaken by blockchain developers, the necessary precautions need to be taken.

In this session, the speaker will:
  • explore the responsibilities of blockchain developers when undertaking related projects; 
  • the legal standing of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), both in the U.S. and elsewhere; 
  • provide advice on how to best undertake development-related roles; 
  • list the checks which should be made before accepting a development role so as to ensure that the project is legitimate; and 
  • the possible risks involved if one does not take the necessary precautions. 
It is a well-known legal principle that ignorance of the law is no excuse, and with such high stakes in this emerging market, it is always wise to be fully informed and protected against any possible mishaps.

Low Code Microservices: Accelerating Ideas to Implementation
Today’s business environments demand speed and agility- the fundamental drivers of the microservices paradigm, and hence the resulting modern software architecture. A low code or no code approach to designing and implementing services can provide the edge needed to achieve that speed and agility – while heavily cutting down on the time and costs involved in the iterative software development process. The low/no code approach when implemented right – at various levels – API, business logic, integration of enterprise data – can help achieve efficiencies otherwise not imaginable through the traditional software development approaches. Call it disruptive, or innovative- this approach is here to change the way businesses and developers are used to looking at software services. In this session, we will discuss the drivers for microservices, common implementation patterns, and blind spots to watch for. Having talked about that, we would also introduce a novel low code approach for ideation to implementation of microservices using CA Technologies' Live API Creator. CA Live API Creator development platform provides intuitive interfaces (CLI/API/GUI), point and click resource definition, declarative logic to configure business rules, built-in developer tools, and interactive data integration/exploration capabilities – making it a more than complete bundle of functionality to build deployment-ready microservices with little-to-no-code and high-to-super-high ease of maintenance.

WORKSHOP: Insights for Patient Data - IBM Watson in a Clinical Setting
If you've ever looked at your medical records, you have some idea about how complex, repetitive, and just plain voluminous it is! Now imagine your doctor spending some of their precious 15 minutes with you in the clinic going through your extensive medical records just to understand your state of health when you walk in the door. In order to address this challenge, IBM has sent Watson off to "medical school" and developed tools to help clinicians improve the efficiency and efficacy of their practice. Insights for Patient Data specifically looks at the entirety of a patient's electronic medical record and is able to identify the problems contained in the record that patient is facing, summarize the history of their care around those problems, and allow for natural language exploration of the record. In this talk, I will explore some of the user interface and user experience challenges that we have faced throughout this process and focusing on beginning stages of medical annotation. As a user interface and user experience engineer with a background in healthcare, technology, and engineering, I will take you through the ups and downs and surprises of developing and deploying Watson for medical professionals.

Accelerate Blockchain Applications Development with BPM
BPM-based application platforms can greatly simplify and enhance the development of applications on blockchain. BPM’s graphically based low-code development capabilities allow blockchain application developers to extract the complexity of blockchain and model it visually, so that it’s easier to quickly integrate applications with any public or private blockchain technology. @Bonitasoft we’ve built a few prototypes this year, and engaged with customers about building business solutions that leverage blockchain technology. Examples of these solutions: management of automobile orders using Chain.com and a document approval process using Stratumn blockchain technologies. In this talk we’ll discuss how we handle the complexity of integrating these solutions by leveraging the integration capabilities of a BPM-based application platform. We’ll also highlight the how to leverage a process-based approach to implement the business logic of the applications. This has a strong common point with blockchain’s concept of “always-forward” motion.

OPEN TALK : Making Meaningful Data-Driven Decisions
Several intersections in the Seattle area have been targeted for traffic gap analysis research. The goal was to determine the safety of gap acceptance through gap analysis using field devices. In the past, these devices were traditionally bulkier, required a power line, and had limited connectivity. 

Our goal was to interface existing legacy equipment with AWS IoT in the cloud, in order to process, transform, enrich, and analyze the data. We also want to be able to process and enrich historical data that has been stored on the SD cards.
Ultimately, we want to explore how recently launched new services empower the user to make decisions based on data, rather than just dealing with raw values in a sea of data. We will explore the various data lakes that allow us to be successful.

Serverless Tensorflow and How to Port Your Model Using It
Previous year Tensorflow 1.4 was finally released. I succeeded to fit it into AWS Lambda and built recognition of images trained on imagenet. Why? Given the price tag of one lambda function run (recognition of one picture) will cost $0.00005. That is, for a dollar you can recognize 20,000 images. It is much cheaper than almost any alternatives, though completely scalable (1000 functions can be run in parallel), and can be easily integrated into cloud infrastructure. If you have a trained model in your pocket my talk will help you to fit it into AWS Lambda.

Decentralized applications also known as Dapps, represent a paradigm shift in the way we view software models and are the next logical step in the evolution of technology. A Dapp is very similar to a traditional web application with one critical difference: instead of API connecting to a centralized Database, you have a Smart Contract connecting to a distributed ledger or blockchain. Unlike smart contracts, Dapps do not need to revolve around finance but can leverage distributed ledger technology for any purpose… including exchanging virtual online assets.

OPEN TALK: Building Native Mobile Apps Using NativeScript

Few years back, using Web technologies for building mobile apps revolved around using hybrid frameworks that basically used a web host view to run a web app inside. As a consequence, the performance of such apps rarely met the desired expectations, leaving the development of immersive and exciting mobile apps to native mobile technologies. This fact has been hard on businesses as well, as having the need of investing in separate designated teams to target multiple platforms takes its toll on expenses, effort, and time.

 Luckily, the rules have changed! We can now see more and more technologies emerge to fill in the gap.  For quite some time now, building modern native mobile apps using Web technologies is no longer a dream!

 In this session, we introduce web developers to NativeScript, an open source framework for building native iOS and Android apps. Join me on this journey as we build a cool pizza order and delivery mobile native app, and in the process learn the fundamentals of NativeScript.

Does the Web need an Operating System?
Friend is a new operating environment that is being built into the internet itself using Blockchain technologies. It's a personal cloud computer - obtained through a url: link - where your files, apps, and services can reside. It can be accessed from a browser on any desktop (Windows, Mac, or Linux), from smartphones, tablets, etc. (iOS, Android), and through other technologies such as TV, AR/VR, and Voice. Completely open source, free and community sustained. And with a commercial license for the Enterprise.

FriendUP is an open source meta O/S that provides a device and platform independent computing workspace enabling rapid applications development and wide-scale deployment, and offering powerful new capabilities over today's user desktop and applications delivery. The Friend Unifying Platform also includes a network management component that enables client devices to share code and computing resources with other clients and decentralized servers. The Friend Network forms a ‘pool’ of shared nodes that may programmatically lend or borrow underutilized processing resources to/from other clients in the network, and pay or earn tokens. This concept brings the Airbnb and Uber sharing economy models to computing and collaboration.

As the preferred solution to enable Dapps to run anywhere on any device, Friend is positioned to become the default tool for application deployment in the Blockchain ecosystem.

Neural Networks: A Primer
Machine learning and deep learning are becoming widely adopted areas in developing innovative solutions. This talk aims to be a primer of neural networks; including the inspiration and intuition behind the concept, and the knowledge and tools one can acquire to start learning and experimenting. As members of the technology industry, we are often bombarded with new jargon, new buzzwords, and new concepts from news and developments around the world. Artificial intelligence(AI), machine learning(ML), and neural networks(NN) all fall into that category of buzz words. This talk dives into the concept of neural networks. Neural networks are known as something used in machine learning, but few people understand how they work and the potential power of them. This talk includes how neural networks fit into AI, the historic inspiration, the intuition for how neural networks operate, the mathematical knowledge required for working with neural networks, the use cases for neural networks, and programming tools and frameworks that can assist one in developing machine learning applications using neural networks. More industry professionals can be made aware of the underlying concepts surrounding artificial intelligence and machine learning; however, we have a wealth of knowledge in these areas in academia. This is the reason I founded the Artificial Intelligence South Africa (AI ZA) monthly meetups and hackathons. We have had 25+ events thus far in Johannesburg and occasionally in Cape Town and Durban. The goal of these events is to get industry professionals in the development space knowledgeable on artificial intelligence concepts and get hands on experience with the tools and techniques that they can potentially use to grow their career and innovate on their projects. This small act will hopefully contribute in helping South Africa stay on par with international developments in this space.

Static websites have recently gained a lot of popularity and static site builders have become mature tools to build websites. Static websites are secure, reliable, easy to scale and require little maintenance. But static doesn’t always cut it. Sometimes we need to have a full-text search, an interface for editors who can’t work with git, or an even an online shop.

At this point, the obvious solution is to turn to a CMS or to write an application that renders pages dynamically for each visitor. In the process, we have to work with all the problems of a traditional web application.

In this talk, Rouven will give an overview how serverless technologies can be used to cover these dynamic use-cases without sacrificing the advantages of a static site.

OPEN Talk : How to Put the Sec in DevOps

 Automation and DevOps have changed the way organizations deliver products. The shift towards DevOps made it pretty clear that companies are adopting this organizational model in order to facilitate a practice of automated software deployment. While the traditional idea of a “software release” dissolves away into a continuous cycle of service and delivery improvements, organizations find that their traditional application security solutions are having a hard time to adapt to the new process and security becomes an inhibitor to the complete process.

 In this session, you’ll learn how different organizations adopted security into their DevOps processes. What obstacles need to be addressed when introducing AppSec to DevOps and when should Sec be added to DevOps?

 Join us to:

  • Discover which obstacles should be expected and how to overcome them
  • Understand what functionality is key to enable real automation of your AppSec program
  • Explore the benefits of having security as part of your DevOps automation (what’s in it for me)?

With approximately 1.6 billion PDF documents on the web and 2.5 trillion created each year, PDFs are often large and unwieldy due to images and other elements attached, leading to slow downloads and impeding efficient file sharing and storage. Data from these PDF documents can also be difficult to extract. Fortunately, optimization is available to help reduce the size of your large PDFs while maintaining the fidelity of the original document. Advanced extraction techniques can also be used to maximize the value and leverage the information that might otherwise be locked in your existing PDF documents.

Microservices and Containers: Mastering the Re-Platforming of the IT Infrastructure
The re-platforming of the enterprise IT infrastructure is no small undertaking and is usually provoked by a shifting set of key business drivers. That is precisely the case today. The term digital transformation is in the hearts, minds and on the lips of top-level business executives and IT leaders alike. The underlying traditional or legacy infrastructures that have dominated enterprise IT for nearly 30 years simply cannot handle the workloads or power the applications that will drive business decisively forward. Both microservices and containers are destined to play a major role in this enterprise re-platforming, for different reasons. Containers for their part hold significant benefits both for developers and the development effort as well as for the organization itself. Understanding this range of benefits is instrumental to securing IT budget for containers going forward. In this presentation, Jim Scott, will discuss the most promising and compelling tools, technologies and solutions destined to play a major role in this re-platforming of the enterprise. Jim will highlight how to stay one clear step ahead as IT undertakes what is arguably its most mission-critical task in a generation.

OPEN TALK: Accelerating IoT Development

The more limited their devices, the more developers need smart, flexible cloud connectivity options to control interactions across the network. Which is to say, for the billions of "smart" devices that make up the Internet of Things, the real intelligence resides in the cloud, where the key to connecting, protecting, and controlling these resource-constrained and vulnerable devices is the intelligent cloud connectivity API.

Cloud APIs establish the crucial two-way link between "dumb" IoT devices and smart networks. In an intelligent IoT ecosystem, a few API calls should be all you need to direct data securely from any device in your network to any destination you choose, including web service endpoints, cloud resources, or platform-level data storage.

AI and machine learning technologies have made substantial progress over the last two decades and as a result have made their way into a wide array of applications. With this widespread adoption has come a demand for systems that can imitate human intelligence. Neural networks have allowed us to construct extremely complex systems while tuning key parameters to achieve commercially usable intelligence. While tuning these algorithms is important to progress, the data that is used to train these models is equally important. Human-in-the-loop is emerging as a critical component of AI offering a source of clean data that can be used to improve AI technologies. HITL utilizes human judgement to augment data that is used to train deep networks in different industries. From autonomous cars to content recommendations, companies are quickly adopting HITL to improve their AI capabilities. In this session we will discuss the importance of data in training deep networks. We will cover conventional methods of sourcing data, why HITL is essential for large scale AI technologies, and how it can be used.

Managing for Autonomy
At Pluralsight, we pride ourselves on our commitment to maintaining autonomy for our dev teams. We have arranged our architecture in a way that allows the teams to work with minimal dependency on other teams, but once the technical concerns addressed, what does it mean to work in an environment where a team is empowered to act independently? As managers in an autonomous environment, we must learn to relate both to the team and the broader organization, communicate relavant information and create an environment where the team feels empowered to make responsible informed choices.  Having worked as both a developer and a manager at Pluralsight, I will talk about the experiences I have had working in a self-directed environment and what leaders can do to create autonomy while maintaining alignment.

OPEN TALK : Personal Robotics - The Future Depends on Developers
The emerging robotics market is ripe for disruption at the hands of developers, likely reaching a market value of $13.2 billion by the end of 2022. There will be a world where robots will be seen and treated as our friends and part of our families - performing helpful tasks, providing safety, and interacting with humans in friendly ways only currently known to science fiction. In order for that day to come, robotics developer expert and passionate entrepreneur Ian Bernstein will address the four principles for needed in personal robots, including: Relationships: They must be able to establish an emotional connection with humans Sense of familiarity: They have to fit into our space Usefulness: They need to actually do things, not just tell people to do things Multipurpose: Be able to perform multiple, not just one task Having built robots since he was 12 years old, Ian has a deep understanding of how developers can tap into this emerging market and what it will take for them to make personal robots a reality.

Implementing Versioned Microservice Discovery in 100 Lines of Node
Service discovery has been made too complex by combining it with orchestration. There are too many beasts-of-a-tool out there that do too much, and yet can't do versioned microservice deployments. This talk will walk you through 100 lines of Node.js code with no dependencies other than redis, and implement a discovery service with the following features: 1. Semantic versioning of services Services depend on specific versions of other services, so v1.2.3 & v1.3.0 can both be live, and you kill off old services that have no users. 2. Live health checks with inversion of responsibility Don't ping a service under high load with status & health checks, instead let it ping back when it can. If it can't ping back because it's near-capacity, then don't route any more traffic to it! 3. Mocking services during testing & development Should not have to bring up the entire microservices stack to develop one of them. 4. Randomized scheduling So you don't starve any one service, instead pick one at random from the ones available & healthy. 5. No highly-available service discovery service Solving the chicken & egg requirement of a highly available service discovery service, in order to enable other highly available services. Only the service discovery database (redis) needs to be distributed. A surprising number of tools out there simply fail to provide these set of features together, and yet pack in too many other things they want to do. This talk does the above in easy-to-understand 100 lines of Node.js code that you can use & modify with confidence!

OPEN TALK: How to Make Secure Coding Simple, Relevant and Engaging for Developers
Coding securely to prevent vulnerabilities and bugs is critical to improving the overall security posture of your company. Developers have the power to add an additional layer of security to your company or conversely, the potential to plummet your company’s stock prices. 

In this session, we will look into the application security market and share a number of options we have figured out to help organizations to achieve secure code.  We dive into the trade-offs application security managers make between different spending buckets and their effectiveness. Spending the entire AppSec budget on detection including penetration testing and static analysis is sub-optimal, but so is spending the whole budget on prevention, including training developers What is a good split? We determine this based on data gathered and analyzed.

We will demonstrate how developers can learn about security in a way that is more engaging and relevant than traditional security training. There is an option for companies to scale secure coding excellence across their organization as individuals and teams easily build and verify their application security skills, gain real-time security advice and monitor skill development. We will also take a sneak peek at Secure Code Warrior’s latest feature, Sensei, which guides developers in real-time to write secure code faster and more consistently, without needing to become security experts.

Education in Multi-User Virtual Worlds: Using Big Data to Create Individual Learning Trajectories
We made a platform helping teachers to create and manage multi-user dynamic virtual environments. Programming skills are not required. The platform enables people to create a smooth workflow of an integration of 3D and VR content into one e-learning process. Based on the platform, we created the industry-specific solution and started working on a pilot project (cabin crew training). In that project, we use a blended learning approach. Our product is integrated with LMS (using xAPI); teachers can create a unique session for every student or a team. Because a VR environment is highly interactive, the amount of statistics data per session is enough to call it Big Data and apply Data Analytics, Data Mining. We use that to identify gaps in knowledge for every student and create individual learning trajectories. Because we collect Big Data, we can create a personalized learning path for one student or a team within the framework of a few sessions and update the path based on new training data. That makes training truly personal. We have presented early project results at APATS conference in Singapore. At DeveloperWeek 2018, we want to share lessons we learned while working in three fields—Virtual Reality, Big Data, Cloud Computing—and how developers can leverage that intersection.

OPEN TALK: Angular at Scale

Google’s Angular, a JavaScript framework, is a massively popular MV* framework for building complex applications in the modern world, be that for the web, mobile, or desktop. It comes with almost everything you need to build a complicated frontend apps, including powerful templates with fast rendering, data management, HTTP services, form handling, routing, modules, and more.

Building modern real-life production-grade front-end apps is not a simple task, especially when you account for developing apps and libraries that are shared across several teams and multiple products. It is one thing to develop a standard Angular using its basic component features, but have you ever designed and shipped a real reusable Angular component library?

In this session we're going to focus on building reusable components, explore the numerous design decisions involved, and discuss the thought process of building such components. We will see how we can use advanced features of Angular to enhance our components and make them more customizable for every need. We'll also cover the necessary steps required to package and publish our components as a consumable component library.

OPEN TALK: Poised for Disruption: Adapting Self-Driving Robots in Complex Human Environments
It is one thing to solve autonomous navigation problems in a lab, but quite another to successfully deploy self-driving robots in live, peopled environments. The key to successful customer adoption is the ease of integration into existing spaces, with minimal behavioral change. Minimizing change to the customer, drives the need for advanced, real-world A.I. solutions - the more the adaptable the A.I., the less the environment needs to be adapted.

End-to-End Encryption is the cure to many headaches in mobile apps & IoT.  It’s been used in chat apps for years, now making its way to mobile databases to E2EE anything and everything. Developers love it because they stop seeing sensitive user data: no chances of database breaches with encryption keys held by end-users. E2EE also makes the HIPAA process so much easier.

AR for the Masses
Now that both Android and iOS have augmented reality (AR) frameworks shipping with their IDE we will see an explosion of AR technology.  This session will provide an overview of building on ARKit (iOS) and ARCore (Android).
We start with what is AR and why it is considered the next big thing in tech by exploring the history and some mind bending demos.  

After building a solid understanding of the what and why, we start diving into the how.  
We will explore how to build an AR app on three different platforms:
  1. Native iOS using XCode with Swift
  2. Native Android using Android Studio with Kotlin
  3. Native iOS & Android using game engines Unity and Unreal
We will outline the advantages and disadvantages of each to help differentiate the different development processes.

The hope is that after attending this talk the audience would be excited about the technology and have the appropriate knowledge to start down the path of AR development.

Apache Ignite Service Grid: Foundation of Your Microservices-Based Solution
Whether it is a Microservices-based solution that is used under high load and processes rapidly growing volumes of data, or an application that does not use Microservices, both usually face the same issues: - Data is still stored in disk-backed databases that can no longer keep up with growing volumes of data that have to be stored and processed in parallel. As a result, conventional databases are becoming a performance bottleneck affecting the overall solution or application. - A solution's high-availability (HA) guarantee was formerly a nice-to-have feature. Today, the HA of an application has become a de-facto requirement. During this session, Denis will provide a step-by-step guide on how to build a fault-tolerant and scalable microservice-based solution using Apache Ignite's Service Grid and other components to resolve these aforementioned issues.

OPEN TALK : Building Location Aware Apps Using Open Source Tools
 This workshop demonstrates how to build the indexing and query backend of a location aware application using freely available open source tools - Python and Redis.  Python is used to build software to parse parse data from publicly available JSON data feeds and index the geospatial components of that data in Redis.

Using public General Bike Share Feed (GBFS) data for illustration, this workshop traces the development of a parser/loader to take bike share station data from a static feed and use geospatial indexing to provide access to station and system data based on a variety of geographic queries. At the end of the workshop, developers should understand the geospatial indexing functions provided by Redis and be comfortable enough to generalize the code and techniques used in the bike share example to their own applications. This presentation is intended for beginner to intermediate developers - no prior knowledge of Redis or geospatial data processing is assumed.  The session assumes attendees are comfortable with basic Python development in a Mac OS or Linux environment.

How To ‘Refactor’ Monolithic Applications into Microservices
No matter the company size or industry, developers today are likely working on one monolithic application or another – struggling to update, test and deploy what has become an overgrown, bloated app. Developers are hearing about microservices, and may be thinking about, or even testing or using microservices architecture to build new applications. But what about legacy apps? Must the baby be thrown out with the bathwater in order to bring existing monolithic apps into a more modern model? The short answer: No. This session will cover recommended strategies for companies of all sizes to “refactor” a monolith into microservices, including: Quit while you’re “ahead.” (Or, don’t make an unwieldy application more unwieldy): When you are implementing new functionality, don’t add more code to the monolith. Instead, turn the new code into a stand-alone microservice. Split the front end from the back end: With most monolithic applications, there is a clean separation between the presentation logic on one side and the business and data-access logic on the other, including an API that can act as a seam. “Splitting” the application along this seam creates two smaller applications. Turn existing modules into stand-alone microservices: Each time you extract a module and turn it into a service, the monolith shrinks. Once you have converted enough modules, the monolith will cease to be a problem. Monolithic applications are extremely common in businesses today. These applications, built using traditional IDEs, are easy to develop, test and – at least at first – deploy and scale. There’s just one thing: the monolith will only get bigger and more complex, becoming a monster for organizations looking to respond quickly, reliably and efficiently to changing business needs and customer demand. As companies increasingly evaluate and embrace microservices architecture they need pragmatic and unbiased content to help them make the transition.

Unleash the Full Potential of your Serverless APIs
There’s no doubt that serverless platforms are rapidly picking up traction - powerful functions backed by simple REST APIs, what’s not to love? Although developers are told that they simply have to write code, it’s not always that easy. Taking serverless actions to production is a tricky task that forces you to consider issues like security, analytics, socialization of your APIs, and more.

In this talk, you’ll learn how to tackle the fundamental issues that every serverless application developer encounters when going to production.

Enhancing The VR/AR Experience With Voice Interaction
Over the past year, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) have gained traction among consumers and developers alike, especially as the market continues to grow exponentially. However, current AR and VR activations mostly include only visual assets, in which the user interacts with visual simulations by physically moving the body. Looking ahead, as new VR headsets with microphones become widely available to the general market, there is an opportunity for developers to infuse something new -- voice -- into the virtual experience to make it more fun and engaging. With voice as the fourth dimension of immersion, developers can now create a virtual world in which users not only physically interact with, but also speak into the headset and see alterations made in real-time. Voice will open new opportunities for developers to get even more creative within the virtual space. During this session, IBM’s Michael Ludden will discuss the lessons he learned with applying voice integration to the Star Trek: Bridge Crew videogame through IBM VR Speech Sandbox. Furthermore, he will offer actionable tips and tricks on how developers can seamlessly add voice into their applications, and provide insight into how the VR and AR experience is evolving with these new voice capabilities.

Developing Configurable Reusable Microservices

I will talk on how the ideas behind the semantic web and linked data help us build microservices that are truly reusable. By using strong open standards such as HTTP, JSON API and SPARQL we can ensure software that is independent of the data model being used by applications internally.


Further I will also touch upon the subjects of reactive programming and user aware graph stores. Combined with configurability these ideas complete the necessary conditions for application independent reusability.


We have applied these ideas at both production and research projects for both European institutions as well as for the Flemish government such as ESCO, Big Data Europe, Your Data Stories and more.


Lastly I want to show the (open source) tools that we are developing to facilitate the usage of these ideas. We have build the foundations of a framework around semantic user facing microservices with mu.semte.ch, We have build an open source platform to allow small to medium sized companies to experiment with big data using these ideas. And we have developed database technology that allows for distributed querying on big graphs. The last 2 are products of the big data europe project (EU horizon 2020).
