Worth a Million Arguments
Keynote (INTERMEDIATE level)
Should we use Spring, Quarkus, or Micronaut. Angular, React, or View. Dynamic, static, or mixed typing? Functional or... will this method give better performance? Each of us have been in what seems like an endless stream of such discussions and sometimes arguments. In this keynote, we will discuss some ways to get deeper understanding of solutions and how we can be effective in making these decisions, by learning from the practices of some of the most admirable artists, scientists, and architects of the world.
How to Approach Refactoring
Conference (INTERMEDIATE level)
We can't deliver good code on the first write. We first have to make the code work, then we have to make it better from different points of view: ease of change, better quality, reducing complexity, and so on. We all know that we have to constantly refactor the code, but what are some of the tenets we should follow for better journey through refactoring. This presentation will discuss the dos and don's when refactoring and way to become effective at it.
Know your Java?
Deep Dive (INTERMEDIATE level)
Many of us have significant experience in Java. Yet, from time to time, we get tripped up by some code that we quite did not expect to behave the way it does. In this presentation we will take a look at some of those and get a deeper understanding of the language we use everyday.
