The fight for control
Keynote  17:00 (45 minutes) - The future Web

During this session I’ll speak about things that I’ve learned being a father, a manager, a coach and a trainer, things that everyone needs to know. – What is this? Asked the CEO. – The audit report you requested, said John, the IT manager. – Are you joking? Have you ever seen an audit report like this before? – I’ll change it immediately. – A complete waste of time and money. This shall never happen again! And then he left. John was shocked. This was the first time he had something meaningful to do in his new job. During the lunch break, he said to his good old friend, an experienced consultant in IT management: – My first two weeks as an IT Manager … And my boss has already yelled at me. There was something wrong with the audit report and I don’t even know what … Can you review my report before I send it back to my CEO? – Sure. I can also help you build one from scratch if you want. I’ve done many audits. In the situation above there are at least two processes: – How can John make the best audit report? (Hard skills) – How can John manage this kind of conflictual situations? (Soft skills). The second question will trigger the most important process. Is his boss going to yell again? How should John react? What can John do so that the entire organization can benefit from less violent communication? However, it is also the less obvious one to address. This is just one typical issue I’m going to talk about.

Streamlined local development with Vagrant and Ansible
Keynote  11:00 (20 minutes) - The future Web

Everyone has used the term “but, it works on my machine …” before and it usually resulted in disaster. Managing your local development environment has always been tricky, especially when you want it to be an exact copy of your production environment.

Vagrant tries to solve this problem by offering simple tool for managing lightweight, portable and reproducible development environments. Vagrant is a tool for both individual developers and development teams.

Besides covering the basics of Vagrant, we’ll use Ansible to provision our machines and turn them into an exact copy of our production environment.

“vagrant up” will be a command you’ll learn to love.

The target audience for this talk is developers looking for an easy way to manage their development environment and sharing it with team members. The main objectives this talk are:

· Hassle-free setup of your development environment
· Having a portable definition of your environment
· Improving collaboration
· Tearing down the walls between developers and sysadmins
· Avoiding dependency clashes between different projects
· Stepping away from one monolithic development environment
· Having a replica of production to develop on
· Boosting confidence that your code will work once it is deployed
· Moving one step closer to continuous delivery

Time is the main problem in these days for many people, including developers and customers. Building a full stack app from scratch in few months can be hard. Also user feedback is important, so you need to have it as soon as possible. If you want to focus on the front-end part of the app and not to worry about the backend server, database, or real-time component, then you can definitely choose Firebase. Along with one of the most popular Javascript MVC framework developed by Google, named AngularJS, you can build a realtime application ready for production release.

Recent newspaper articles show that the contribution of information and communication services to economic growth surpassed that of agriculture and building industries in Romania. ICT, it says, can become a locomotive for the Romanian economy, although its share in GDP is only 6%.
One way is going about this is the usual way; to become part of huge hubs like Google, Amazon and Oracle. That I want to state is the way of the past and will lead to another kind of colonization. This time by Over The Top players to host data of Romanian citizens and companies in clouds of shareholders with commercial not democratic inclusive interests. I propose another way; to build fully on open source soft and hardware enablers, decentralized cloud solutions and build a Romanian or federated set of Central European platform in which to host all local data, foremost for agriculture. The Estonian e-card can be a building block for Identity Management leveraging the field with huge transparency and anti-corruption by default.

MicroServices… Cloud… What does it mean in practice? Like many other things there is no simple way to explain it.

While MicroServices offered us a new and refreshed approach to the traditional application architectures, it also introduced new problems and levels of complexity in areas that otherwise would have been considered traditionally trivial. We intend to give you a quick overview of the MicroServices development based on Spring’s Boot and Cloud along with their support for the Netflix OSS. We’ll address topics like MicroServices integration via service registration and discovery with Eureka, declarative REST client with Feign, client side load balancing with Ribbon and reactive programming along with circuit breaker pattern using Hystrix.

All these to help us Maintaining Zen while moving toward Cloud.

Keynote  12:45 (45 minutes) - Cloud Computing

“At the begining of 2012 we deployed our first application in AWS. But we weren’t using the nice and cool benefits of such a cloud platform, we just used it like a normal hosting solution. Today our application has evolved, and we are using things like auto scale – increasing and decreasing the number of machines based on counters, keeping the session in Redis cluster, using a cache layer, better monitoring and alerts provided by AWS infrastructure.
This talk is about what we learned during this 3 years and how someone else can benefit from this experience to build their app to take advantage of all the AWS infrastructure from day 1.”

Developing and Testing in the Cloud
Keynote  16:35 (25 minutes) - Cloud Computing

Thinking about how we do development today we’re going to start from the premise that anyone of us has a well established workflow that he or she has been using for years. Probably using some form of an IDE installed locally and maybe have configured a local server to build the resulting code. We can also assume that instead of all this you might be pushing code to a remote server and building your code there. Whatever the case maybe we live in an era where anything is possible. Development in the cloud has been a reality for a few years. We can now perform the actions that we once did locally, directly in the cloud. Before we can dive into more details about the whole development in the cloud business we must first take a look at the big picture. How does development in the cloud influence the world we live in? At the moment we have almost everything in the cloud. Storage, development, communication. Everything has a form in the cloud. Development in the cloud is on a continues rise. We have service like Github, Amazon EC2 or MS Azure that help developers, who shape the world of tomorrow, with their ongoing struggle to achieve continues builds and faster deploys to production. So another question arises. How can developers that shape the world of tomorrow improve their workflow, even more and achieve goals faster? By building tool that simply replaces their localhost. Developers in general need a tool that: works on any type of hardware, that is friendly with beginners and doesn’t require any prior setup, has communication tools for remote development, and has no additional costs… It NEEDS to be FREE! The main driving force behind any good cloud development environment is the VM (Virtual Machine). Now, we’re not talking about hypervised VMs, we’re talking about actual VMs that have root access and that are able to perform any action a local machine would be able to do. Above all this a cloud environment should have a well equipped IDE (interactive development environment) that accompanies the VM. The IDE should offer all the tools a developer could ever need. When it comes to testing in the cloud, what performs better than a cloud environment. Since we already have our code in the cloud, integrating with a testing platform is just a few commands away. The ability to interact with a testing platform, directly from the command line, can result in a very lucrative workflow. Once the above questions will be answered we can be sure that developers all over the world will start to come up with more great project because they won’t have to worry about the location of their code and how well it performs since they’ll have access to it 24/7 wherever they are, and their code will be continuously tested.

The Data Revolution governed by Data Science
We are the witnesses of a new revolution: the data revolution. Companies are changing their decision making behavior towards a data driven approach and Big Data is a central topic. However not many companies understand the difference between having a Big Data IT set-up and running Big Data Analysis processes. If for the first one, concepts are easier to digest, it is a different story when it comes to “how to generate meaningful business insights out of Big Data”. This is the field of Big Data Analytics, governed by Data Science laws.
Big Data factories: Analytics on top of Data Engines
Once Big Data Analysis outcomes prove their capacity to address particular business problems, it has to be transformed into a Big Data Analytics process and turn into production mode. Only then, companies’ investments in setting up Big Data IT infrastructure are fully justified.
Success ingredients: being significant, having predictive power, triggering proactive actions
The Big Data Analytics journey from exploratory to production mode is about incorporating under the umbrella of Data science some important ingredients: (i) looking into small/off line data seeking for significance, (ii) looking into relevant big data seeking for predictive power, (iii) looking into streaming data seeking for models’ validation.

Batch processing frameworks : Spark vs MapReduce
Keynote  12:45 (45 minutes) - BI/Big Data

Hadoop MapReduce framework is still the mainstream computing framework into the bigdata world, but as should happen in any prosper area, there could appear a better alternative soon.
In this case is about Apache Spark, a general processing framework, developed at Berkeley university by two romanian guys, Matei Zaharia and Ilie Stoica, which promises faster execution by switching computation from disk to memory and a easier way to develop bigdata applications.
In this presentation we will see how MapReduce and Spark works, needed programming skills and their main characteristics

Streamlined local development with Vagrant and Ansible
Keynote  11:00 (20 minutes) - BI/Big Data

Everyone has used the term “but, it works on my machine …” before and it usually resulted in disaster. Managing your local development environment has always been tricky, especially when you want it to be an exact copy of your production environment.

Vagrant tries to solve this problem by offering simple tool for managing lightweight, portable and reproducible development environments. Vagrant is a tool for both individual developers and development teams.

Besides covering the basics of Vagrant, we’ll use Ansible to provision our machines and turn them into an exact copy of our production environment.

“vagrant up” will be a command you’ll learn to love.

The target audience for this talk is developers looking for an easy way to manage their development environment and sharing it with team members. The main objectives this talk are:

· Hassle-free setup of your development environment
· Having a portable definition of your environment
· Improving collaboration
· Tearing down the walls between developers and sysadmins
· Avoiding dependency clashes between different projects
· Stepping away from one monolithic development environment
· Having a replica of production to develop on
· Boosting confidence that your code will work once it is deployed
· Moving one step closer to continuous delivery

I believe developers are a force to be reckoned with in the 21st century. The right developer mindset and set of skills can turn our city and our country into a one-of-a-kind technology hub that can truly affect the entire world through world class software products. If I can play a little part in making that happen by contributing in one way or another, I’ll absolutely invest in any opportunity that can take us there. So I’m here to work with you and the developer community to build a future that looks brighter than the present and to transform our country and the world. Why not?
