    Speaker: Ethan Strominger

    When should you refactor code and when should you not do it?  How do you make sure you have adequate test case coverage?  What are the strategies, techniques, and patterns for refactoring existing code?  And how do you get your boss to agree to let you spend the time to refactor code?  This presentation will cover these questions and more.  Topics covered include Acceptance/Approval Testing, Design Patterns, Code Smells, Refactorings, and Tools.

     

    For a deeper dive into related topics of Mob Programming, TDD, and software craftsmanship, join Ethan at the Mob Programming Conference April 12-13 in Burlington, MA.  Several of the presentations are on refactoring.

  • While "DevOps" is a very overrated and misused marketing term, we have many DevOps stories from around the world proving that shared responsibility between Dev and Ops can work out really well.

    A key component of DevOps is open communication and feedback loops. Monitoring data is one source of these feedback loops. Too often, however, this is only done in Operations for firefighting and root cause analysis. Kevin will discuss approaches of Shifting-Left Performance into the Continuous Delivery Pipeline to give earlier and faster performance, scalability and architectural feedback to developers, testers, architects and business.

    The presentation will include some hands-on experience on how to bake monitoring into DevOps tool chains such as JIRA, Bitbucket, Jenkins, Git, HipChat, JMeter, … - there should be something for everyone who wants to learn some new tips & tricks on how to become more “DevOps’y”

    Kubernetes out of the box is a strong platform for running and coordinating large collections of services, containers, and applications. As is, Kubernetes is powerful for many solutions.

    Remember Underdog?  He was a mild-mannered dog, but when stress and conflict were introduced to the plot he took a magic pill, he became a superhero. Istio is a superhero for Kubernetes.

    Istio is an open, platform-independent service mesh that manages communications between services in a transparent way. With a distributed architecture many things can fail, slow down and become less secure. Istio provides solutions to those stresses in our plot toward this architecture style:

        • Traffic management

        • Observability

        • Policy enforcement

        • Service identity and security

     

    We will explore these benefits with Istio through some working examples on Kubernetes. The key point is this meshing solution allows your Java code to be less coupled to the inherent weaknesses of a distributed platform.

    • An Introduction to Domain Driven Design

      Attended: 172

    Today’s enterprise applications are complex, distributed and mission critical. In this session we want to share how the concepts, tools and patterns introduced by Domain Driven Design helped us in enterprise application architecture and design. DDD is invaluable in strategic architectural decision making. DDD was instrumental for us to layout our microservices architecture. We learned to speak DDD and adopted that as our medium of communication to build our team. DDD made our communication with outside teams and integration within the enterprise easier. It made us conscious about implications of enterprise integration at strategic and implementation level.

     

    This presentation will include concepts of strategic and tactical DDD. It is also organized in such a way to encourage discussion rather than follow a strict lecturing mode.
