In September Oracle announced that it would be moving Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation. EE4J is the start of the project which aims to define API specifications, reference implementations, and technology compatibility kits for Java application servers. EE4J is based on Java EE 8. At Java One last week, a panel of experts from Eclipse […]

Google’s AlphaGo is an extraordinary breakthrough for Artificial Intelligence. The game of 19×19 Go has 1.74×10^172 unique positions and is about a ‘googol’ times harder to calculate than chess. Experts thought it would take at least another decade before AI would be able to beat the best human players. So how did Google tackle this […]

JPA is the main building block in most Java projects. However, a lot of developers still use it without a deep understanding of the technology, relying mainly on applying the copy-paste methodology from StackOverflow or existing system entities. During this presentation recorded at Devoxx Poland 2017, Jakub Kubrynski consolidates knowledge about object-relational mapping. We see […]

Cloud native applications are popular these days. They promise superior reliability and almost arbitrary scalability. They follow three key principles: they are built and composed as microservices. They are packaged and distributed in containers. The containers are executed dynamically in the cloud. But which technology is best to build this kind of application? This talk […]

In his session at Devoxx UK 2017, Michał Płachta gives us a A Pragmatist’s Guide to Functional Geekery. Basic functional concepts like immutable data, second-order functions, lambdas and function composition can already be found in the modern programmer’s toolkit. During this talk you will learn about more advanced functional concepts and how they can solve real problems. I […]

Everyone worries about performance but few of us have the time to truly understand it. Fortunately, our modern JVMs and CPUs are capable of some amazing performance tricks, but those same tricks only make reasoning about performance that much harder. In this talk, we’ll take a look at some surprising and often unintuitive performance problems […]

Adam Bien goes (mostly) slideless in this talk recorded at Devoxx Poland 2017 Java and JavaScript are the most popular languages. Popularity attracts developers and developers like tools, frameworks and libraries. Libraries come and go, frameworks are introducing breaking changes on each release, and the enterprise (=longer lasting) projects have to survive in such environment. […]
