Monday, the 17th of November GOTO organizes a new GOTO night in Amsterdam and what a session this will be!

The evening starts with a lot of pizza to satisfy the hunger. Beware though, food for thought might come from the other great minds you can share dinner with. It's all about meeting new people and sharing your passion!

After the pizza we have 2 speakers who are able to blow you away. First we have Eelco Visser who will explain the principles and techniques for designing and implementing software languages. He will show how Spoofax helps us in creating our own languages.

Our second speaker is Neal Ford. He will explain the paradigm shift to get from an imperative programmer to a functional programmer. He will give examples in Java, Clojure and Scala. Expect to be amazed.

Be quick!

Boarding is almost finished and the room is already packed. Who will fill the last few seats for a full house? Register now using this link and see you on monday!

 

Had a good time at GOTO Copenhagen

Last week I attended GOTO Copenhagen. Everybody should know the GOTO conferences by now. This was a new conference in Denmark. I had a good time, attended very good keynotes and a number of very nice presentations. I have also given a talk myself called: Visualising real time traffic data using elasticsearch and c3js. In this blogpost I am giving a summary of some of the talks I attended.

My Goto Amsterdam 2014

July 17th, 2014 by

People who have worked with me know I'm a bit of a technical conservative. I'm very wary of quickly adopting the latest fads and trends because I've seen the collective hype and the following disillusionment too many times, including software being built with the then-latest-hype framework or platform and a year later being stuck with now-obsolete technology that only the original developers and a handful of other people still have any real experience with.

For the same reason I've avoided software tech conferences in the past years. A few visits to conferences several years ago on each occasion left me with feeling that I'd heard a lot about a lot, but that it wasn't really going to improve my daily software development work.

Luckily, Goto Amsterdam 2014 was different.

Many, if not all, of the talks were relevant to my actual, day to day, software development job. I learned about looking at Agile in a different way. I heard people speak on real life problems being solved with actual, current, widely adopted technology. I even listened to talks that weren't really that much about software development at all.

So let me walk you through my Goto Friday.

Introduction

Two weeks ago was the GOTO conference in Amsterdam. With a lot of pleasure I was happy to attend one of the best developer conference in the world. There were a massive amount of talks divided into 5 rooms. After a hard time choosing which talk I wanted to attend I ended up attending the following talks:

I am about to relate three talks I listened to in more details and explain why I found them interesting.

Plain berlin buzzwords

Last week was the week of the Berlin Buzzwords conference. For those of you that do not know it, Buzzwords is one of the best conferences about search, scale and store (read: big data). Next to having good speakers and nice content there is also a very important social aspect during the conference. There is a good reason the first session starts at 10 o'clock.
