Spearheading the future of programming - Overflow

Keynote

We've, as humans, been programming only for the past few decades. We've come a long way in some ways, yet we've advanced only marginally on other fronts. We hear folks tell us, 'oh, things change so fast' and yet we've changed only a little in the way we develop software. Imagine where we'd be, if only von Newman had not put that bottleneck in computing... It takes a long time for the software developers to change. The last big changed happened about 20 years ago. We're poised for the next big change. In this presentation we'll learn about the perfect storms that's influencing that change and the directions that the programming field is evolving in.

Rediscovering JavaScript

Deep Dive

JavaScript has come a long way in the past few years. If you've looked at JavaScript in the past and hated or feared it, you will learn from this session how JavaScript has transformed into an elegant and highly tolerable language with ES 6, ES 7, and ES 8 versions. You will learn about some of the amazing features of JavaScript that leads to elegant and fluent syntax to create concise code.

Java Streams vs. Reactive Streams: Which, When, How, and Why?

Deep Dive

Java 8 introduced Streams and Java 9 now has Reactive API. Which one should we choose, when should we choose them, why, and how to use one vs. the other. This session will answer all those questions, by diving deep into the APIs using live code examples.
