Topic: How’d we get here? – Event sourcing / CQRS pattern

We’ve all come across many buzz words, new hyped techniques, and “The next big thing” in our reading.  For the last few years I’ve been seeing a lot about CQRS, Domain Driven Development, and Event Sourcing and thought it was time to find out what all the hype was about.  In this talk we will discuss the Pattern of event sourcing and CQRS and what some of the advantages/disadvantages are when implementing this pattern.  We will also do a high level code walk through using Java with the Axon Framework to implement this pattern in a microservice.

We thank Techlahoma for generously providing the materials for the meeting, including the projector, pizza, chairs and to ProtoTekOKC for providing the cool environment.

We are meeting at Techlohoma again this month as the new location does not have A/C yet. Stay tuned for details on the new location.

Speaker: Jordan Parmer, Software Engineer, Oseberg

Topic: What Is Functional Programming and Why Should You Care?

It’s hard to ignore the growing number of Functional Programming languages. Haskell, Scala, Clojure, F#, Erlang, R, and many more. But what is Functional Programming and why should you care?  This talk sets out to demystify FP, debunk common misconceptions, and highlight ways FP can solve certain problems. Stuck with Java or C#. No worries! Functional programming doesn’t require a purely functional programming language. It’s a different way of building. Let’s get functional!

Topic: Kotlin in a Mildly-Elevated State of Agitation

When it comes to the JVM these days, there are enough language choices to choke a horse. The good folks at Jetbrains, though, felt there was room for another and gave the world Kotlin. While it may seem like a new language (it hit 1.0 only this year), Kotlin has actually been in development for several years and is already in production in some significant applications. In this session, you’ll get a gentle introduction to this newish language, taking a whirlwind tour of all of the great features in Java’s newest competitor. We’ll have slides! We’ll have source code! We’ll probably even have some weak attempts at humor, and when we’re done, you should know enough to get you started with this great language. Unless you left early.

Topic: Scala: Beyond the Basics

Most Java developers have heard of Scala and many have even tried it out.  In this talk we will be doing a high-level discussion of the features that are unique to Scala and what make it a powerful language for consideration above Java and other JVM languages.
