Title: Building a CQRS + Event sourcing microservice with akka.

There has been a gradual change over the last few years on how systems are architected and built, moving away from the conventional flow of building a monolithic application where you have a bunch of APIs backed by a DBMS, this talk focuses on building a reactive application that follows the CQRS/ES pattern using the actor based programming model and will help to make the first move towards implementing an actor based event-driven architecture with akka toolkit.

Talk[masked] - Leszek Sliwko - Scala Developer - UK Home Office

Leszek Sliwko has been awarded a Ph.D. in Parallel and Distributed Computing for his work developing a novel AI-driven load balancer for Cloud systems. At present, he leads a team of Scala programmers in developing and maintaining several internal UK Government systems which are deployed within Kubernetes/Docker clusters.

Title: Cluster Schedulers: Borg and Kubernetes

This presentation is analysing deployed and actively used workload schedulers’ solutions, and presents a taxonomy in which those systems are divided into several hierarchical groups based on their architecture and design, namely Operating System, Cluster, and Big Data schedulers. This review is focused on the key design factors that affect the throughput and scalability of a given solution, as well as the incremental improvements which bettered such an architecture. Special attention is given to Google’s Borg which is one of the most advanced and published systems of this kind.
