• Mary Grygleski: Enterprise Hybrid Mobile App with a Cloud Native Backend
    5:30-6:00: Food, Soda, Beer and Networking 6:00-6:15: Announcements 6:15-7:45: Enterprise Hybrid Mobile App with a Cloud Native Backend This session shows how to develop and run native mobile apps without needing to know much about the native platforms, such as Android and iOS, by leveraging a hybrid development framework such as Ionic, which is built on top of Apache Cordova and is capable of transforming an ordinary web app into a mobile app. The presentation discusses a real-life enterprise-level Android and iOS mobile app developed under pressure for a wireless service provider. It covers some of the technical details of the app as well as how to perform device-level debugging of the Android app, using adb. You’ll get practical tips on what to watch out for and compare the hybrid approach to React and Kotlin/Native. About Mary Grygleski Mary is currently a Java Developer Advocate for IBM's Digital Business Group, specializing in Reactive Java systems. She has been riding the software tech waves since 1989, starting with Unix and C, then set sail for Java, open source, and the web in the new Millennium, and now venturing into reactive, mobile, and the DevOps space. In her previous incarnations, she worked for several technology product companies in the Route 128 Boston Technology Corridor as well the San Francisco Bay Area. She now resides in the Greater Chicago area and is an Executive Board member and the Director of Meetings for the Chicago Java Users Group (CJUG). Mary continues to be amazed by how software innovations can dramatically transform our lives. She can't wait to see what the next tech wave will be like.

  • Jamming with a Quantum Computer: A musical journey into quantum computing
    5:30-6:00: Food, Soda, Beer and Networking 6:00-6:15: Announcements 6:15-7:45: Jamming with a Quantum Computer: A musical journey into quantum computing with James Weaver Musical improvisation is the creative activity of composing music "in the moment" while performing it, often in a jam session with other musicians. Although composing and performing music is a creative process, the underlying musical style informs the probabilities of note and rhythmic choices that the musician makes. For example, when improvising in the style of twelve-bar blues, the notes played with the highest frequency of occurrence are typically the five that comprise the corresponding minor pentatonic scale. This idea of musical style being a complex system of probabilities fits perfectly with the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics, which is a phenomenon leveraged by quantum computing. To implement this idea, James Weaver created an open source application named Quantum Music Composer that makes use of a quantum computer to improvise music in a very simplified version of 17th century counterpoint. In this session, James will give an introduction to quantum computing, cover a bit of music theory, and demonstrate how a quantum computer can compose music and participate in a musical jam session. He will then discuss the development and implementation of the Quantum Music Composer application on IBM, and Rigetti, quantum computers. About James Weaver James Weaver is a developer, author, and speaker with a passion for quantum computing. He is a Java Champion, and a JavaOne Rockstar. James has written books including Inside Java, Beginning J2EE, the Pro JavaFX series, and Java with Raspberry Pi. As an IBM Quantum Developer Advocate, James speaks internationally at quantum and classical computing conferences. He tweets as @JavaFXpert, and blogs at http://JavaFXpert.com and http://CulturedEar.com. 7:45: Door prizes
