War Story: moving from Java to Kotlin

Urs Peter
In this talk, Urs Peter will reveal his journey with his current client to move from Java to Kotlin. Based on his real-world findings, code statistics, and many code samples, he will shed light on questions like ‘What were the benefits and drawbacks?’, ‘How did we approach it?’ …and most of all: ‘Was it worth it and why?’ Finally, he will share his findings and best practices he learned along the way, providing you with the information and tools to evaluate whether Kotlin is worth a try.

Cooking your Ravioli “al dente” with Hexagonal Architecture

Jeroen Rosenberg
Hexagonal architecture (a.k.a. ports and adapters) is a fancy name for designing your application in a way that the core domain is separated from the outside world by input and output ports. With a little bit of imagination one can visualise this as a hexagon made up of domain objects, use cases that operate on them, and input and output ports that provide an interface to the outside world.

Finally: Reactive Programming without the headache made possible with SpringBoot & Kotlin

Urs Peter
Reactive programming is around for quite some time now. Its benefits are tremendous, offering way better resource usage than traditional blocking Threading, Parallelism, and Streaming. Nevertheless, the learning curve for reactive libraries - like RxJava, Reactor, Vert.X, Akka - is still considerably steep and requires mastery of several layers of complex abstractions. Should you think: “why is that so hard? Can the same goal not be achieved simpler?” then this talk can be a revelation for you!

Autonomy, is that what we really want?

Kenny Baas-Schwegler, Evelyn van Kelle
There has been a focus on autonomy in information technology; From autonomy in code, autonomy while coding, autonomous systems with microservices to autonomous high-performing teams. When you read Daniel Pink's research in the book Drive, it makes sense; autonomy is one of the three things that motivate us; it is the ability of the person to make his or her own decisions. However, often autonomy can lead to isolation and disconnect from the rest of the code, team, or organization. So how can we balance the individual needs while staying connected to the team/organization to stay autonomous?
