Blockchain for Java developers
What is blockchain and why do we care? You might have heard about hash chains, blockchains, Merkle tree, UTXO, Crypto accumulator, but what do they actually mean? Why are those concepts so powerful that they could fuel such a revolution? Now all of these concepts are great but where and how would you apply them to a project?
In this session, we will take you through the basic concepts behind blockchain, explore the type of use cases where blockchain can make a difference and introduce you to a real-life example of a Java application leveraging Hyperledger Fabric.
This talk is aimed at developers and architects who are keen to learn more about Blockchain.

Distilling Agile for Effective Execution
The objective of agility in software is to fulfil evolving customer requirements while delivering high quality software on time and within budget. A number of agile methodologies have been developed promising to achieve this objective. But their adoption has proven to be challenging leading to cargo culting and bikeshedding practices that challenge project success. A review of Agile Manifesto and principles of agile methodologies distills them into 3 fundamental components. This talk suggests that a disciplined pursuit of these fundamentals while adopting agile practices increases an organisation’s chances of success.
Reduction is key to agility. It is of fundamental consequence to not just iteration planning and execution but in all aspects of project execution. Smaller stories simplify estimation, implementation and pivoting in addition to reducing intra-team dependencies. Smaller merge sizes reduce risk of merge conflicts and enable focused...
BeyondTech is a forum for layered discussions on diversity and accessibility, tech ethics, and tech for good.
Across two days, speakers will look at what enterprises and individuals can do to encourage, manage and communicate diversity. The conference is an open conversation to dissect the paths taken in tech, the decisions we make and where they are leading society as a whole.
Discussions will dive into our accountability for what we create, and for who, why, and how we ship new software and concepts. Through these discussions, we hope we can learn how all of us can benefit from diverse perspectives to create products that have a lasting and positive impact on the future.
Transparent, Meritocratic & Peer-owned: Open Source Technology and the 21st Century Cooperative

Hands on: Exploring Quarkus with Kotlin
Let’s meet in the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs to write some code in good company. We plan to experiment how to develop microservices with Kotlin running on Quarkus, and are open to debate about the potential of this new very promising platform. We’ll start with a short introduction to Quarkus by Sanne Grinovero, followed by a hands on workshop together with Uberto Barbini, in which we’ll run Kotlin code on Quarkus and have fun with the revolutionary developer friendliness of both these technologies combined.
No experience with Quarkus is necessary, no Kotlin experience is required either; proficiency of Java is highly recommended.
Remember to bring your laptop with Java, maven and Kotlin configured on your IDE. GraalVM tools and Docker a...

The Open Food Network are thrilled to announce our first ever UK Hackathon. Over the weekend of the 4th and 5th of May we’ll be nestling into Newspeak House to spend two days working on real issues for the global open source project. Together we hope to expand our exciting community, bring in new people that believe in what we do and share our experience in building a successful remote open source community. And of course we will share great food, laughs and fun!
Reactive Relational Database Connectivity
An increasing number of projects starts incorporating reactive programming. On their journey they start to discover that the only way to get the full benefit of that change is to ensure that they have a fully reactive stack.
There are a number of messaging systems and data stores that enable a fully reactive stack, but there has been a big piece missing when it comes to accessing relational database systems in a fully reactive way.
This talk presents the Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC) initiative. This project aims for what a reactive API would look like when paired with relational database access. This talk explains how the API works, the benefits of using it, and how it contrasts with the ADBA project proposed as a successor to JDBC.
