Modern Enterprise Architectures with Enterprise IT Systems - Legacy or Goldmine?

From developers, for developers. This talk will give you a modern view on enterprise IT and Mainframe computing, introduce you to some bits of technology that are unique in the industry and show you how modern paradigms also transform the way software, that was written many years ago, is maintained and enhanced. Learn how major players in the IT industry work with existing legacy IT, how it is enhanced and maintained and what the plans are for the upcoming years. Some words one might not expect: Cloud Native, DevOps, RESTful APIs, moder Languages, Linux, Containers, Micro Services and SRE are all topics that are key for mainframe computing 2020. Speaker Tobias Leicher started as a student in IBM and quickly became interested in Mainframe Computing, where he has spent most of his career so far. He started as a specialist for CICS and Java on the platform and helped many customers across Europe on their journey to modernize their Systems. These days he focuses a lot on modern application architectures (Microservices and Cloud Native) and deployment models in times of the cloud computing. He is part of the worldwide zChampion Team, where he has special interest in the topic of modernization and Hybrid Cloud and works as Architect for German Customers in the area of banking and insurance.

IBM Cloud Code Engine: Run Your Source Code, Containers, Batch Jobs - Serverless

From developers, for developers., Join us for a deep dive into the new IBM Cloud Service called Code Engine (http://ibm.biz/code-engine). Code Engine is IBM's new flagship serverless platform, designed to leapfrog the competition by running containers, 12-factor apps, batch jobs and functions on a unified platform. If you had ever questions like “how can I run my containers without knowing what a cluster is", “I just have source code that I want to run on the cloud" or "I have a run-to-completion / batch workload that I need to run" this session is just right for you! The session will present the use-cases, the service architecture, technologies used, and best practices, garnished with a set of live demos. Free IBM Cloud account: https://ibm.biz/BdqwNr (no credit card required) Speakers Uwe Fassnacht is a Product Director at IBM Cloud, where he is responsible for the Code Engine offering. He is leading a team of product managers and working collaboratively with design and development leaders to translate market requirements into product roadmaps and business outcomes. In his previous role, Uwe led a worldwide team of developer advocates. He holds a degree in electrical engineering from the University in Stuttgart, Germany. When he isn’t working, you’ll find Uwe hiking or paragliding in the Alps. Simon Moser has been with IBM since 2003, where he is currently the lead architect for the Serverless and PaaS parts of the IBM Cloud. He is interested in many aspects of clouds and distributed systems, emphasizing on technologies that allow systems to manage themselves. After receiving his M.Eng., he started his career in various development roles around application servers and Business Process Management, and started his journey in Cloud Computing in 2010. Along the way, he has been chairing various program and steering committees, has been publishing many papers and given many talks at various international conferences. He’s listed as an inventor on a good dozen US patents, and has adjunct lecturer appointments at the University of Jena & University of Esslingen, Germany. In his spare time, he’s torturing various musical instruments.

Actionable Decisions from Data Science

Online event

From developers, for developers. An introduction to Mathematical Optimization. The aim of many Data Science projects is to generate value by discovering new insights to support better business decisions. However, exactly how to make these decisions in an optimal fashion is often far from obvious. At the same time, poor decisions can eliminate any value added by Data Science very quickly. In such cases, Mathematical Optimization can help by offering better decisions quickly and consistently while considering a multitude of factors like predictions of demand and supply of raw material. We invite you to explore together how this fascinating technology works, what it can do and the advantages it brings. Speaker Sebastian Fink joined IBM as a Consultant for Advanced Analytics & Optimization in 2010 after graduating from Darmstadts University of Technology. He worked on many data science projects across all industries before moving to a Technical Sales role for Decision Optimization in 2016. In this capacity, he was involved in numerous customer engagements centered on Data Science in general and optimization in particular.

Gotta go fast with Quarkus: the blue hedgehog of Java web frameworks

From developers, for developers. IBM Developer and Consol present a Cloud Native Story Part 1 - Gotta go fast with Quarkus: the blue hedgehog of Java web frameworks Traditionally, Java has been known to be resource hungry and have long startup times. This especially stands out when using large frameworks or application servers like Spring Boot or Payara. For technologies like container orchestration and serverless, those properties can lead to challenges or even be a show-stopper. Quarkus is a cloud-native stack developed by Red Hat. It provides up to 30x faster startup times and up to 90% less memory consumption. Coupled with a developer-centric concept, Quarkus promises developer joy and high productivity. Quarkus implements the JakartaEE- and MicroProfile-standard. This allows vendor-agnostic and portable solutions. In this talk, we will take a look at some of the JakartaEE- and MicroProfile-features of Quarkus. For this, we will implement two small REST microservices from scratch using maven. The main topics of the talk are: - Bootstrapping a Quarkus application with maven - Basic JakartaEE features for providing REST endpoints, dependency injection and a persistence layer - MicroProfile Health for health- and readiness-checks - MicroProfile Metrics for monitoring - MicroProfile REST Client to consume REST APIs within the micro service - MicroProfile Fault Tolerance to make the microservices resilient - MicroProfile OpenTracing for observability. Agenda: Talk (45 mins) Q&A (15 mins) Speaker: Marco Bungart, ConSol Dr. Marco Bungart is a Software Engineer at ConSol GmbH. Their main field of work are cloud native java web applications, together with application lifecycle management (CI/CD) and infrastructure automation.
