Session Title:
Demystifying Event-Related Software Concepts and Methodologies

Session Synopsis:
No matter exactly what type of software you are building, at least a few terms starting with the word "event" must have tried to invade your professional space. "Event-driven" has already evolved to the level of a magical buzzword in IT marketing and sales activities. But the tech terms list is much longer. It includes "event streaming", "event storming", "event sourcing", "event store", "event modeling", "event notification", "event-carried state transfer",  ... Getting dizzy already? Don't worry. Many developers feel this way. This talk is an “event-dizziness” cure. It'll walk you through the entire "event land" and explain what is what. It’ll discuss the origins, intention, and applicability of each term. So the next time you face the "event-driven" label, you can ask the right questions and make educated choices.

Session Title:
Modular monoliths that could scale to microservices (only if they need to)

Session Synopsis:
It’s easy these days to fall into the trap of starting to design your whole application with a microservices architecture…. Because, you know, that’s what everyone is doing, right? But no, no. I’m not going to deny that Microservices have their advantages, specifically in a distributed and scalable world like the one we need to deal with. The problem may be in the approach we are taking. Are we considering the microservices architecture as a goal, or as a means to a purpose? In this talk we will think in a different approach: we will go back to the basics, and see how following DDD, CQRS and Event-Sourcing practices will drive our application design and evolution in such a way that we will start with a monolith but we will have the ability to scale into a microservices architecture more or less easily when (and more importantly: if) we need to.

Session Title:
Targeting the cloud with reusable functionalities

Session Synopsis:
Finding a sweet spot between choosing a single platform and choosing a multiple per-business logic platform in designing a component can be challenging. There are pros and cons on each side. By taking advantage of business logic segregation on component level the release of changes without regression risk and with minimum duplicated effort can be achieved.

Session Title:
Software Architecture & Diagrams as code

Session Synopsis:
Nowadays software architecture is not only a professional specialization anymore but increasingly it is more of a function in software engineering. And one of the perils of any software solution is the software degradation/software entropy, understood as insufficient care in maintaining the coherence with product design and established design principle. Software architecture can and must enforce architecture fitness test which validates architecture design over time and provides continuous feedback for architectural conformance and informs the development process as it happens rather than after the fact.

About Alberto
I am a technical team lead at Luxoft DXC Technology. As core value I am a lifelong learner with focus on progress (not on perfection) and following the split-apply-combine strategy approach. I have more than 18 years of experience in Java Enterprise complex projects.

Session Title:
The gamification of Test-Driven Development

Session Synopsis:
Let's talk about Test-Driven Development (TDD), a good alternative to write quality code covered by unit tests. As a developer you know the story of covering all the production code by unit tests, but do you manage to do it? TDD is not all about testing, it is about incremental development in small steps. How can this concept be easier to understand if not through a game?

About Victor
I will use my 19 years of experience as a software tester and my 11 years of expertise as senior trainer in order to support my customers in their effort to be more innovative while approaching the quality process and testing because I strongly believe that brain can be used for creation and machines for execution  I lead my software testing business with a very close attention to customer processes so we are able to create tests that will reflect the customer’s style of working, we will replace repetitive actions with creativity, we will use the scripting or coding knowledge to create automated scripts who will replace manual repetitive work. Together we can automate and innovate more because I strongly believe that brain can be used for creation and machines for execution! My 16 years background in software quality testing & quality training facilitation and my customers testimonials – are my best arguments!
