Understanding Latency: Key Lessons and Tools


Full Stack JavaScript

Think JavaScript is just for the browser? More and more organizations are beginning to embrace the efficiencies that come from a homogenous technology stack. This presentation dives into the best practices and patterns for extending JavaScript to the server using Node.

Gabriel Dayley is a Software Architect for the LDS Church, where he's pushed the web as a strong platform for building applications. He is the founder of the Utah Google Developer Group and holds a B.S in Computer Science from Utah Valley University.

Tom Valletta is a Mobile Architect, Open Web Evangelist, and hack that has been developing for the web for fourteen years. His clients range across industries including defense, healthcare, technology, e-commerce, human resources and religion.


Understanding Latency: Key Lessons and Tools

Understanding application responsiveness and latency is critical not only for delivering good application behavior but also for maintaining profitability and containing risk. But when measurements present false or misleading information, even the best analysis can lead to wrong operational decisions and poor application experience. This presentation discusses common pitfalls encountered in measuring and characterizing latency, and ways to address them using some recently open sourced tools.

Matt Schuetze is the Director of Product Management at Azul Systems. He is responsible for managing requirements and charting product roadmaps for the Zing, Zing Platform Edition with WebSphere, and Zulu product families. Matt worked through the ranks at software companies Compuware and Micro Focus, from staff developer, to team lead, to development manager, to product manager. Since joining Azul, he contributed heavily to the implementation of the Zulu Enterprise open source offering, including its global launch in January 2014.

How a Non-Coder perceives the World of Information Security

Chris Hansen

Microservice Architecture [Slides]


How a Non-Coder perceives the World of Information Security

An insight into how a security guy sees users, threats and technology and what he does in the face of that perceived reality in his every day work including the biggest stumbling blocks on the way to a mostly secure environment.

A little guidance can go a long way in helping you navigate the new world of distributed version control, and this talk will help you make informed choices of the Git features you'll use, the branching patterns you'll leverage, and the way you will integrate your chosen pattern with your team's development practices.

Jason Tracy is a veteran Information Technologist of 15+ years with experience in Networking, Systems, Telecommunications, Information Security and Technology Management including the coordination of large, Enterprise-wide deployments and initiatives.  He’s an avid reader, a reluctant (yet enthusiastic) conspiracy theorist, a husband and a father of five.


Microservice Architecture

Microservice Architecture has a lot of buzz right now, with industry leaders like Netflix and ThoughtWorks espousing its benefits. In this presentation we’ll define the term "microservice", discuss the inherent tradeoffs, and provide tips on making them work in the real world. 

Chris Hansen is the CTO of Zane Benefits, where his team is building a platform from the ground up using Microservice Architecture. Previously, Chris was an Architect at and Experticity. Chris's experience with RESTful services dates back to 2008, with Overstock's migration to a Service Oriented Architecture. At Experticity, Chris worked to establish patterns and tools for writing microservices.
