From SBB, Switzerland
Tom is a real geek! He has a vast experience in messaging systems, business process management and high-throughput processing. For the last few years he has been working on numerous assignments fulfilling a range of roles, particularly dealing with design and development of small to large scale systems, mostly on the JVM.
Tom is an enthusiastic open source contributor and the founder of a couple of open-source projects (babun, p2-maven-plugin, soap-ws). Finally, he is very keen on tutoring, presenting and live coding, especially in a non-fluffy way. Tom has previously presented at various events in Europe including Javazone, Devoxx, Jazoon, GeeCON or 33degree. You can reach him on twitter at @tombujok
So, you have heard about NoSQL but did not have time to deep dive into it nor had a chance to use it in a commercial project? NoSQL movement has been around for a while now. It's worth to have a gist of what it can do for you.
This session will be a practical walk-through showing the most popular NoSQL databases, outlining their features and surprise, surprise drawbacks. Marketing hype aside, we will try to understand the differences between these databases, their programming models and learn how to properly use them in our daily work.
No prior knowledge is required. Come by to learn more about Cassandra, Neo4j, Riak, Redis, MongoDB and many others!
The truth is really brutal. Whether we like it or not, most of us develop software using the Windows OS. Corporate policies, etc. we all know that story. How can we survive it? How to be as productive as on a Linux/Mac machine without spending hours on tweaking the Windows Registry or hacking some Visual Basic scripts?
In this session we will have a quick look at the babun project http://babun.github.io - a Windows console you will love from the very first second. It features oh-my-zsh, package-manager, programming tools and much more.
Babun has been downloaded by 50K developers in the first months and rocks the Windows world ever since. Interested? Come by and befriend your Windows (however bad it sounds)...
