On the surface, content is king online. But digging deeper into the underbelly of the web reveals a complex ecosystem of communication and contribution that shapes the web and how we interact with it. What lessons can we learn from the web’s inner workings as we move to a mobile-driven, multi-device internet? Luke will not only lift the covers on where we need to focus our efforts but share lots of practical advice on how as well.
Traditional approaches to build cloud applications have been very successful, but as we reach the performance limits of computing, perhaps a functional approach will yield the next quantum leap in designing and building high performance distributed applications.
In this talk, we will take a traditional problem - building an accounting system - and develop a radically new functional architecture suited especially for Azure. We will apply functional concepts such as value semantics, and immutability to the Azure environment and develop techniques for super-scalable, functional workflows.
is the next minor update to C++ after C++11. It was finished in February 2014 and provides several small improvements and fixes for both the language and the standard library. This talk gives an overview of what is new in C++14 and about the most important fixes to C++11 provided with C++14.
As backend developers, we spent years perfecting and implementing the various patterns we use. These patterns allow us to exploit previous pain and experience, resulting in improved robustness of our code and increased efficiency of the coding process. At the same time we are finding it harder and harder to avoid working in the browser, and making unique and compelling end user experiences. With the experience we now have with client, similar benefits of using design patterns can be gained here.
Join Anthony van der Hoorn, as we look at what design patterns exist on the client and how we can use them. Once you know what patterns are at your disposal, you will start writing better code, that's more maintainable and easier to read.
