Agenda for FrontEnd focused 72nd DevClub.lv:

  • Alfreds Genkins and Ilja Lapkovskis from Scandiweb will give a talk “Modern PWA experience with old generation e-comm platform – the reasons, techs and goals”.
    In the last time PWA became another hype word in web development. There are tons of promises, multiple selling-point features, but after all – these are we, technicians, who empowers all these. Right now Scandiweb is about to release first real-life Magento 2 PWA application, which has reworked UI to utilizes power of PWA and why we adopted it into the old stack. During our speech we want to destruct all the hype and marketing to share the tech behind these, new opportunities and ofcourse new challenges:
    – What is PWA and can it be simple with all these cool features and marketing promises
    – How to implement PWA for complex scenarios and highly dynamic applications, i.e. e-commerce platform
    – Real life example – how Scandiweb recreated Magento frontend to make it feel native with React JS and GraphQl
    – Technology and tool market – how it looks in the beginning of 2019.

  • Dzulqarnain Nasir from Geta Digital will give a talk “Dependency Injection in JavaScript with InversifyJS”.
    Dependency injection is a programming technique that makes a class independent of its dependencies. It achieves that by decoupling the usage of an object from its creation. This helps you to follow SOLID’s dependency inversion and single responsibility principles. In this presentation, I will demonstrate how this can be achieved in JavaScript using an IoC container library called InversifyJS.

    At Visual Composer, we rely on ReactJS to develop content elements. In this talk, we will look into why we choose ReactJS and how to use it to develop independent web components via API.

Announcement of Java focused 71st DevClub.lv

Hi!

We wish you Happy New Year!
Lets start it with Java focused DevClub.lv.
You are welcome on January 24 at 18:30, Zaļā iela 1, 4th floor (Microsoft Latvia office).

Agenda for Java focused 71st DevClub.lv:

      • Pijus Navickas from WIX will give a talk “First date with GraalVM”.
        Milda Glebauskaitė from WIX will give a talk “Breaking language barriers with GraalVMs polyglotism”.
        GraalVM – the newest JVM extension generated a lot of buzz in the industry,  already earning the trust of such industry giants as Twitter. The promises GraalVM gives definitely sound good: a better performance, as well as seamless interoperability between multiple languages, all running on the JVM. Should we be interested in it too? In this talk Pijus will explain, what exactly is GraalVM and what hides behind the scene and Milda will demonstrate GraalVM polyglotism, exploring weather we can actually create seamless applications, selecting the best programming language for our tasks, without the overhead.

      • Arturs Drozdovs from Intrum Global Technologies will give a talk The one and only way of designing Java applications”.
        There is no “one and only” way; each team has to choose the most suitable approach for their situation and project. What is common throughout all the teams is the need to make choices. In this talk we will look at the choices we’ve faced in our team, what options did we consider and what conclusions did we come to.

      • Olegs Anastasyevs from ok.ru will give a talk “Resilience in Distributed Systems”.
        ok.ru is the most popular social network in Russia and top 20 website in the world. And it is one of the largest, complex and highly loaded distributed system: 1000s of servers participate in user requests processing in real time. Each of these servers has only small part of data locally and implements only a fraction of processing logic. Social network can hardly be built using shared nothing architecture, so there is a lot of shared state, network communications happens between our servers, different in kind and widely varying in volume.
        In distributed system of such scale we can hardly find a single second free of some failure, glitch or lag. How to build a continuously failing system, which works correct nevertheless? What are full and partial failures and how to address them?
        What do idempotence and speculation mean? What should be implemented upfront to workaround outage of the large subsystem or “main” database? How to manage pre-production tests and release delivery?
        There are many hard questions in distributed systems development. In this talk I’m trying to give ok.ru answers on them.
        (Language – Russian)
        Tags: resiliency, distributed, microservice architecture, highload
