4:00pm: Transforming to Java 8

The new facilities in Java 8 is about the change the way we write code. Our code will become more expressive and concise. But, exactly how?

In this presentation we will take several common Java code examples, discuss the core idea expressed in code, and transform that code to use the facilities in Java 8. Watch and interact as you see Java code go through a weight loss program right in front of your eyes.

6:00pm: Core Software Design Principles

Creating code is easy, creating good code takes a lot of time, effort, discipline, and commitment. The code we create are truly the manifestations of our designs. Creating a lightweight design can help make the code more extensible and reusable.

In this presentation we will take an example oriented approach to look at some core design principles that can help us create better design and more maintainable code.

 

Pizza and drinks will be provided between the 2 sessions. Also, one lucky attendee from each session will win a $25 Amazon gift card. Stay for both sessions and double your chances of wining.

Topic: Webscale HTTP services with Dropwizard

Building web apps in Java has changed significantly over the past few years. Many of those changes revolve around keeping your application fast, maintainable, and flexible in the face of ever changing deployment environments (aka “the cloud”) and rapidly changing standards. Dropwizard looks to fit in the areas that J2EE does not and even replace it in a large number of cases. So if web APIs are your thing, come checkout Dropwizard and how it can help when building production ready APIs.
