ThinkJava #4 at Kharkiv

11 December 2016

On the eve of the fourth meeting of the community, our team moved to a new domain and updated the design of ThinkJava website. :) Event was held at our habitual place — a large hall in Fabrika creative space in Kharkiv.

Our team swam the seas and oceans to attend the SpringOne Platform in Las Vegas and prepared ThinkJava #4 program after their return. Two speakers shared their newly brought-back knowledge and experience in cloud computing.

The first speaker Alexander Malinovsky uncovered the theme “Applications Development with Cloud Foundry”:

  • the main types of clouds;
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS);
  • criteria of Cloud-Native application;
  • main components of Cloud Foundry;
  • zero-downtime deployment in a real CF application example.

During the coffee break, the event guests took an excellent opportunity to discuss the speech with like-minded people. And perhaps, maybe a couple of guys even managed to walk to the bar on the ground floor. :)

The second speaker at ThinkJava #4 was Roman Tsymbalenko. He introduced the concept of “Data Wrangling” in his report to the participants and showed:

  • a continuous data processing system with a Spring Cloud Data Flow;
  • benefits of transferring these systems to the cloud;
  • use of the existing Spring sub-projects.

In conclusion, the speaker spoke about available Spring integrations and shared his predictions about what we can expect in the future.

Traditionally, we hand out plush Dukes to ThinkJava #4 speakers. This time, the special application randomly selected badges, the owners of which got cool and useful gifts—cups and power banks. :)

Thanks to all participants of the event and see you soon at ThinkJava #5. We will be glad to see you again and to also see some unfamiliar faces!

If you have any ideas about how to make the event even cooler, send them to conference socials: Vkontakte, Facebook, Twitter, Meetup group. And if it inspired you to try out for the role of a speaker, we will wait for your emails with the subject! :)
