Speakers about Serverless, Blockchain, testing and digital development

Bert Ertman
Serverless: The future of cloud

Are you still using Docker in production? Get over it! Serverless is the NEW future of the Cloud. But since the Cloud is still someone else’s computer, that needs to be managed too. And if it is sitting idle, you probably have to pay for it whether you like it or not. No server can be more easily managed than no server. Therefore: meet Serverless, a new paradigm that truly approaches the Pay-as-You-Go philosophy once promised by the Cloud. This talk explores Serverless, its impact on existing architectures, and assesses it’s usability for Mobile Back-ends as a Service (MBaaS), Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) and also for Microservices based architectures hosted in the cloud. Internet connectivity permitting, there will be demos too.

Fabio Franco
Why Blockchain?

Often the usage of Blockchain is challenged and deemed unnecessary. Knowing when and why it adds real value is key to understanding the potential of the technology. I aim to clarify that.


Mandy Wertwijn
Who is your user?

Have you ever felt you are developing something no end user will ever understand without an extensive manual? Have you ever questioned who you actually are developing for or why a specific design needs to be implemented in the first place? Have you ever had the feeling your involvement in the project came just too late leading to a forced change of scope? In this talk I will explain why these type of situations occur and what you can do about them.

Ruud Welling
Writing hundreds of testcases at once using Property Based Testing

In this interactive coding session we will teach you the basics of property based testing (using a property based testing libraries for java and scala). We will do some bug-hunting to explore the possibilities of property based testing, so bring your own laptop. You will discover that this method allows you to write testcases which find bugs that would otherwise have gone unnoticed in your unit tests.
