DevNation 2016: Galder Zamarreño on “Building reactive applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid”
Earlier this month I did an interview with the DevNation 2016 organizers to talk about my talk on forthcoming talk on building reactive applications with Node.js and JBoss Data Grid, the Infinispan version for which Red Hat provides professional support, certified integration, patches…etc.
The talk has been designed around a web application that promotes JBoss Data Grid talks in forthcoming conferences, user groups… etc. The application will contain a Node.js component whose job will be to interact with the backend JBoss Data Grid servers to store and retrieve data, as well as receiving events when new information has been added to the backend. Through the live coding of this application, the audience will get an understanding of how to interact with the newly released Node.js JBoss Data Grid client, and after the talk they’ll have access to the code to be able to try it themselves.
Tuesday 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Room 133
About the presenter:
These days I’m hugely interested by the purely functional ones such as Haskell, Elm or Purescript because the lack of mutability makes their solutions both elegant and easier to reason about. I’m also keeping a close eye as well on the Erlang ecosystem, e.g. Elixir, because I feel that the predictable latency offered by the Erlang VM is something that it’s not so easy to achieve in Java Virtual Machine.
I think learning other programming languages is one of the best things a developer can do, because it opens your mind to different points of view, different ways to solve problems, and widens the solution space.
