CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is well known for its LHC particle accelerator, and the discovery of the Higgs particle. Unsurprisingly, innovation in Engineering and Information Technology are key to its success; technologies, such as Computing Grids, the World-Wide-Web, and capacitive touch screens all began at CERN. In this presentation, Derek Mathieson gives […]

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 […]

Join Clement Escoffier for a walk through the reactive landscape, recorded at Devoxx UK 2017. Reactive Programming, Reactive eXtensions, Reactive Streams, Reactive Systems, Reactive Manifesto, that’s a lot of “reactive” thingies. Just to make it even more confusing, “reactive” is often associated with asynchronous, scalability, RX libraries, back pressure, streams, observables, futures, promises, spreadsheets and […]

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 […]
