17:00 to 17.30 The Storm Trooper Way of Processing Streams by Łukasz Gebel

Processing the unbounded streams of data in a distributed system sounds like a challenge. Fortunately, there is a tool that can make your way easier. Łukasz will share his experience as a "Storm Trooper", a user of Apache Storm framework, announced to be a first streaming engine to break the 1-microsecond latency barrier. His story will start by describing the processing model. He'll tell you how to build your distributed application using spouts, bolts, and topologies. Then he'll move to components that make your apps work in a distributed way. That's the part when three guys: Nimbuses, Supervisors, and Zookeepers join in and help to build a cluster. As a result, he'll be able to show you a demo app, running on Apache Storm. As you know, Storm Troopers are famous for missing targets. Łukasz will sum up the talk by sharing the drawbacks and ideas that he missed when he first met this technology. After the presentation, you can start playing with processing streams or compare your current approach with the Apache Storm model. And who knows, maybe you'll become a Storm Trooper.

17:40 to 18:10 Motivation and Ownership: The Secret Ingredient of the High Performing Teams by Félix López

Ownership is the new hype,  every article, post about high performing teams talks about it but almost none of them explain the reason behind it and how to achieve it. That's exactly what we are going to explore in this short talk.

18:20 to 18:50 Deploying DevOps Culture by Ana Lebrón

What does it mean for an organization to go DevOps? Capabilities over “Maturity”, Outcomes over Output and continuously focusing on adding value. Going DevOps means different things for each organization, and similar to other methodologies (such as Agile), the term DevOps needs to adapt to the company’s culture, leadership, and operations. This presentation will dive into the opportunities and challenges of deploying a DevOps culture and will encourage the audience to share their own personal experience implementing this organizational and cultural change.

19:00 to 19:30 Local First by Peter Van Hardenberg

We've been conditioned to accept that the software we write only runs if we pay our Amazon bill and that the software we rely on can disappear one day because someone else didn't. We've lowered our expectations, too. Our software can only be so fast when it runs on a computer on the other side of the world. 

It doesn't have to be like this. We can have the benefits of the cloud with fewer of the disadvantages by thinking local. In this talk, Peter will give you an intro into the research Ink & Switch has been conducting into local-first software: software that prioritizes your experience on your computer. They've combined web technologies, recent breakthroughs in computer science, and peer-to-peer data distribution to show how you can build software with real-time collaboration at every level that never goes offline because it runs on your computer.
