Spring Framework: The Ultimate Configurations Faceoff!

Almost every major version of Spring framework introduced a new way to configure the context: XML, Annotations, Java Config, Groovy… What’s next, and, more important - why so many?! And how to know what to use and when? In this session Baruch, Viktor and Yakov will try to find the silver bullet, and you will have a chance to vote for the best feature implementations or even make a bet of the winner!

Ground-up Introduction To In-Memory Data (Grids)

You’re an architect or a developer with years of experience creating amazing applications. You’ve just been assigned to a low latency project! Because you’re an expert, you’re expected to master a new In-Memory caching/data technology and be productive from Day 1. You feel completely lost as you open the JAR files. Not only that, but you have to contend with new topologies and data stores like NoSQL or Hadoop. Trust me, it’s not as bad as it appears and setting up in-memory data is NOT as hard as you think. This session will cover the things you need to know to be successful on your first low latency in-memory based project.
This presentation will be highly useful for developers and architects of the high performance applications. The attendees will learn about modern in-memory technology landscape, distributed data topologies that work well, how to make in-memory reliable, scalable and durable, the techniques for really Big In-Memory Data will be revealed! And most important, no prior knowledge of In-memory data grids required!

The Epic Groovy Puzzlers S02: The revenge of the parentheses

More strange, more bizarre, more fun! The Groovy Puzzlers hits with its second season in which we implemented the lesson learned from the first one - do more of the same (always as a duet)! Expect even more “NO WAY!”, “WHOA!”, “WTF!”, O_o and prizes flying around, and expect to learn more about Groovy’s darkest secrets! As usual, the traps we fell into here in JFrog and contributions from top-notch Groovy authors and users!
