Clojure Bits in JVM Universe (Anatoly Polinsky, USA)

Out of many strong JVM based languages Clojure and Java make a great couple. Coming to Clojure from Spring several years ago Anatoly Polinsky really wished, back then, someone could explain functional programming and Clojure ecosystem to me from the Spring/Java point of view. In this talk Anatoly Polinsky of Chariot Solutions will bridge the gap by talking about practical “How would you do X in Clojure” examples including state management, AOP, talking to SQL/NoSQL databases, Consul based app configuration,…

Alexa, tell me more about AWS and Google Home

Alexa’s so smart, she learns more every day. (That’s what Amazon tells me, anyway.) So I’m going to pick her brain a little, and see if she can tell me anything about AWS. Maybe she knows how to write Alexa apps, or even regular REST & JavaScript apps — apps that run entirely in AWS. Maybe she can even tell me how to do it all for free? Could she *be* that smart? But listen, just because she, you know,…

Philly ETE 2017 #43 – Serverless Architectures – Mike Roberts

Cloud computing has reduced engineering costs and improved delivery effectiveness drastically over the last decade, but new systems and features can still see lead times of weeks or months even for a prototype release, and operations costs are still often inefficiently managed. Modern approaches in cloud computing, including the new area of serverless architectures, tackle both of these concerns. Serverless architectures are those that incorporate third-party backend-as-a-service (BaaS) products into the application, or that use functions-as-a-service (FaaS) platforms, like AWS…
