CodEmotion Milano 2019

This year I had the possibility of choosing among good talks with calm and it paid off honestly…

On the organisational side, I have to say it got worse… food was extremely below the expectations, I really can’t find the match for a (not-so-little) paid event. Moreover, staff at the room corners seem to know nothing about organisation matters and I was a bit astonished.

Anyway, I can say a little about the talks…

 

Building Stateful Clustered Microservices with Actors and Kubernetes – Hugh McKee

I couldn’t attend the whole talk, but I found it very interesting, since I don’t have a deep knowledge of Akka, while I obviously knew Kubernetes, so the application was very attractive.

 

Java Migrating to 11 in real app – Poitr Przyby

This talk seemed a bit sciolistic but… the guy was a good performer!

It could be boring to hear a long list of a language features, which are changing from a major release to another, so the speaker should entertain the audience and keep it awaken ūüôā

Piotr threw some Polish jellyfish packs to people answering his questions

 

Deploying Go Functions – Julien Bisconti

I didn’t appreciate very much this talk, because the actual part I wanted to see at work – the FaaS deploy system – has not actually been showed more than twice and very slightly.

A pity.

 

Combining Serverless Continuous Delivery with ChatOps – Viktor Farcic

He simply worths the  ticket.

I didn’t really want to attend CodEmotion this year, but when I saw that there was Viktor – an amazing person I knew in Amtersdam, attending a CloudBees course – I changed my mind.

He showed the present and the future of Jenkins X, a promising project which is evolving under the hood and it will change the way we look at CI/CD with the Jenkins family (actually it’s not Jenkins anymore!)

 


Second day

The Life of a Packet Through Istio – Matt Turner

An illuminating talk that showed the Istio components and how they manage the east-west networking inside a kubernetes cluster

Codemotion 2016

Avrei voluto scrivere un report dettagliato su questa conferenza di due giorni, ma non ne ho avuto le energie (o meglio, avevo iniziato ma ho perso la bozza a causa di un mancato sync dell’app di Evernote).

Note positive sono state la grande qualit√† dei keynote di inizio giornata (di sabato in particolare, dove un ragazzo di 13 fa un discorso fantastico riguardo all’etica dei programmatori e ricorda commosso Alan Turing, padre del computer e persona tormentata per la sua omosessualit√†).

Molto piacevole anche l’aver incontrato ex-colleghi di Fashionis e Agavee/SparkFabrik.

Guardando ai talk, ho scelto di dedicare il mio percorso ai filoni DevOps e Microservices¬†e in ultima alternativa,¬†AI/Machine Learning… sul primo filone ho trovato talk interessanti ¬†esposti con chiarezza, in merito a Kubernetes, Docker, Architetture ServerLess.

Per quanto riguarda Microservices invece sono rimasto un po’ deluso, l’unico talk¬†visto √® stato quello di¬†Mark Heckler (Pivotal): Living on the Edge (Service): Bundling Microservices to Optimize Consumption for Devices with Spring Cloud & Netflix.
Il buon Heckler ha calcolato male i tempi per una sorta di demo live, molto efficace per carità, ma rischiosa: non puoi fare una demo live così ambiziosa avendo 40 minuti a disposizione (di cui ne ha sprecati 10 in inutili premesse).

L’altro talk sui Microservices di venerd√¨ pomeriggio √® stato agilmente cancellato senza colpo ferire :-/

Indi per cui mi son gettato nell’area di AI e Machine Learning… con speaker di una noia mortale, slide a dir poco inefficaci, insomma dei fiaschi totali #1 #2

Il vero campione del sabato, quello che vale il prezzo del biglietto, √® stato Sven Peters di Atlassian con il suo “Coding Culture“, roba di un altro pianeta proprio…
