6:30pm - Tech Talk from the Trenches: "Building Distributed Microservices Applications using NodeJS, Redis and Hydra services @ Flywheel Sports
7:45pm - Wrap Up and Networking
* Speaker: Carlos Justiniano - Chief Software Architect @ Flywheel Sports
* Brief Bio: 2005 Guinness World Record involving Distributed Computation. Co-authored two technical books published by Prentice Hall and Springer. Published research papers and articles with ACM, IEEE, IBM, O'Reilly, and the Linux Journal.
Currently, Chief Software Architect at Flywheel Sports - focusing on distributed applications and Microservices using Docker, NodeJS and AWS services.
* Description: Building Microservices can be a daunting experience. Small teams often struggle with the dizzying array of tools required to build, test and maintain services. In this talk we'll examine how to address key Microservice concerns using Redis as one of the few external infrastructure dependencies among others!
Carlos Justiniano is a founder and core committer on the Hydra open source project for building Distributed Applications such as Microservices, so expect to learn how Distributed Applications are architected, built and run at massive scale in fact Guinness World Records scale http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/largest-networked-chess-computer
