Why It’s Worth Going

  • Talk in person

    To see old friends. To discuss current problems. To come up with new ideas. To debate and just chat.
  • Switch the format to offline

    To have a change of scenery, to distract and have a good time. To gain fresh impressions and new acquaintances.

Broadcast

There will be a broadcast on the Offline day of the conference, which is available to participants with any ticket. If you want to meet and interact with the speakers and other participants live,we are waiting for you at the venue. And if you are not ready to get to the venue, recordings of all the talks and activities will be waiting for you on this website.

    Development: new vs. ready-made

    Together with Vadim, Andrey and Alexey we will try to understand why developers often write something new and not use the "ready-made". What factors contribute to this? There are many non-obvious things here: additional dependencies, the need for specifics, problems at scale, the difficulty of interacting with open source, the "free" nature of the ready-made, licensing restrictions, the need to constantly upgrade and others. Let's discuss what the pros and cons of cycling are, and where it's appropriate and where it's not. Get involved!

    Life of Java applications in cloud containers

    Cassandra asynchronous transport

    In the talk, the speaker will detail Cassandra's own implementation of asynchronous transport, which has significantly saved resources and simplified developers' lives. The new transport is based solely on the Java SDK and the concise but efficient implementation of the Actor Model. In addition to the device of this solution, let's talk about various optimizations, problems encountered along the way, as well as switching to asynchronous transport of loaded Cassandra clusters in production.

    Interview with Vitaly Kutsenko

    As part of an interview with Vitaly Kutsenko, backend technologist at the R&D department of Rostselmash and a speaker at the Joker conference, let's talk about what agriculture is like for a Java programmer. After all, it is literally a ploughed field for developers who write in Java. At the same time, farming already has its own proven techniques. Let's discuss which ones, and how the work of a Java programmer in this field is built and how it differs from others.

    Working with information systems architecture in our changing world

    To adapt to the high speed of change in the world around us, development has moved from "waterfall" to Agile methodologies. This has increased the speed at which the first prototype systems emerge, but it has also seriously increased the risks that full versions of such systems cannot meet all the key functional and non-functional requirements. There are requirements for load, for security, for reliability, for ease of expansion, and more.

    A good way to mitigate such risks is to work out system architectures. Often a compromise version of such study is chosen, so that the development would not take too long, but the key architectural decisions to manifest and consciously accept.

    On the example of one of the systems design, the speakers will tell about how Sportmaster Lab works with the system architectures both on the stage of primary system design, and on the stage of systems development in product teams.

    Cloud Native JVM. Cloud Compiler

    All modern JVMs have JIT compilers to maximize application execution speed. Powerful JIT compilers require a lot of CPU & Memory resources. Usually JIT is used intensively in the warmup phase of an application, but the allocated resources remain in the system until the end.

    But what if you take the heavy compiler out of the client somewhere in the cloud as a Compilation Micro Service?

    Four tips for a beginning Teamleader: the foundation for success

    Probably a lot of people have had it — you're sitting there, writing code, when suddenly you get a message on Telegram: "Will you be a Team leader?"

    Let's talk about that. What to do. How to deal with new responsibilities. Why you shouldn't write code and how to live without it. What to do when the team is completely new and incoherent.

    Teaching Java: The Pain and the Glory

    Together with Ivan Uglansky and Ivan Ponomarev we will talk about the problems of teaching Java programming. What to teach? In what format? What should we focus on when arranging the teaching process? What trends can be seen in modern education? In general, is it necessary to teach Java? Ivan and Ivan will share with the audience their pain and pride in this difficult task.

    How to store JSON in a database without attracting DBA's attention

    Sooner or later every developer has to store something in the database that is inconvenient to store there. For these tasks there are known elaborate and inconvenient ways to solve them, which in addition can easily lead to performance problems.

    An alternative to all this is storing such data as JSON. But relational DBMSs don't like JSON. The speakers will talk about the problems associated with this, talk about how they can be solved without leaving the relational structure, and demonstrate what's wrong with these solutions.

    How to replace SAS products with BPMS (jBPM)

    Speaker will talk about import substitution of RTDM, Viya, ID components. The above engines run high-load processes in industrial applications with ~50,000 TPS and 99.99% availability (53 minutes of downtime per year). The most similar engines in terms of functionality are BPMS class systems: Camunda, jBPM, Kogito and others.

    The speaker will tell why they have chosen jBPM to replace SAS products, will immerse you in the architecture of the solution and will show you the bugs they have encountered and how to fix them.

    One day in the life of a JVM engineer

    Our JVM world consists of two layers: on one layer there are Java and Kotlin developers, cool specialists about Spring and Hibernate, wizards of enterprising and huge server applications. But there is an opinion that inside this globe there is another ball, much bigger than the outer one! We are talking about the second layer: the development of the Java virtual machine itself, which is used by Java developers.

    Ivan takes a peek into this other world: how do JVM developers live? What tasks and challenges do they face? How is their life different from classic Java development? And can a Java developer go to the other side by becoming a JVM engineer?
