Habits help you manage the complexity of code. You apply existing skill and knowledge automatically to the detail while focusing on the bigger picture. But because you acquire habits largely by imitation, and rarely question them, how do you know your habits are effective? Many of the habits that programmers have for naming, formatting, commenting and unit testing do not stand up as rational and practical on closer inspection. Kevlin Henney examines seven coding habits that are not as effective as programmers believe, and to suggest alternatives. www.istanbultechtalks.com
Jumping all in on Microservices is very appealing for us developers. We dream of the day when all of our systems will be nicely decoupled and independent. When riding the hype we often choose not to talk about the trade-offs, but neglecting to do so can have great consequences, and one day we wake up to reality. Still, there are good reasons why to pursue a Microservice architecture, and at Queue-it that is what we have done. This talk is based on the path towards a Microservice architecture at Queue-it, and will explore the pros and cons of Microservices. We will discuss when to apply the architecture and what alternatives there might be. NDC Conferences https://ndcminnesota.com https://ndcconferences.com
The Internet of Things is not a single choice of technology, approach or philosophy. It brings together multiple platforms, products and protocols, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. One of the challenges of IoT is to make it as easy as possible to allow developers to create things, for play or profit, serious or whimsical, professional or hobbyist. Node-RED is an open-source visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things. Built on top of node.js, it provides a light-weight, browser-based editor that makes it easy to integrate different streams of both physical and digital events. This session explores what Node-RED can do, showcases how it has been used to great success across a range of industries and looks to the future of the project.

Onboarding new and junior developers to the team is hard. You want them to become good, but that requires instruction, and instruction takes time.
How do we teach new programmers in a way that enables them to truly learn and be independent? How do we bridge the gaps of not only knowledge but confidence and creative thinking? What enables systematic learning, and what makes a good teacher, and how do we cooperate these ideas into our work?
