The latter implies that the market for Java Software Engineers is quite big, so there are always quite a few opportunities for all levels of expertise. However, when a market is big it means it's always not that easy to find good Engineers; because in the end, this is what companies want: exceptional Engineers. Are you happy enough with your current position? Do you often find yourself in dilemmas like "am I doing the right thing?", "should I change something?", "how can I improve my skills?", "how could I be seen as a strong technical person?" ? Except for answering the aforementioned questions, this session will actually help you to: - market yourself as you never did before - drive your career in the direction you want - keep being motivated to become better and better - improve your productivity - take the right decisions at the right time Biography Thodoris Bais Thodoris is an Agile Coach and Scrum Master for a big bank and contributes to the prosperity of the (software) community in many ways.

His views are expressed via his Twitter handle @thodorisbais **Past, Present and Future of Java** Java is being around for more than 20 years, and a lot of things has changed on the market and in the platform until it first release. For the past 10 years java is being always on the top 5 languages adopt by the Software Engineer Community, what gives credibility but at the same time brings the necessity to move fast, incorporating new features, but keeping the support to legacy code. In this presentation we will: • Show the latest market numbers related with the Java language and it's importance to the current market • Do a quick review about Java history • Discuss the java license model • Discuss what we can expect for the next years Biography Rodrigo Soared Rodrigo is an LINKIT Java Squad Lead, with more than 10 years of experience in software development.

What are the advantages? We’re going to go through a mono-repo setup based on nx of nrwl. By adding multiple Angular, Testing and Library projects, we’ll demonstrate the scalable architecture of nx. On the second part of the talk, we’ll be discussing takeaways for the architecture, components, http, ngrx, performance, router, rxjs, tooling and typescript topics of a large Angular app based on the Angular checklist. **Alternative testing approach** Nx provides alternative testing tools for your projects. Some of the leading testing frameworks such as Jest and Cypress will be introduced during this session. We’ll see how easily one can configure and execute tests on those testing projects in a mono-repo setup. Additionally, we’ll extend the default setup of Cypress with cucumber files. Finally, we’ll demonstrate a POC of a snapshot testing in Angular with Jest. Biography Önder Ceylan Önder is a Google Developer Expert in Web Technologies.
