Tomorrow Friday, 28th October, I’ll be speaking at the Soft-Shake conference (Geneva, Switzerland) about writing apps in functional reactive programming style with Infinispan, Elm and Node.js. If you’re interested in the topic and live in the area, make sure you come to my talk!

Last Tuesday I gave a talk at DevNation 2016 on building Reactive Applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. The slides for it will be uploaded to the DevNation site shortly, but for those who want to play around with the application demoed in the talk, you can find the code and instructions in this repository.
The Red Hat Developers blog posted a review of the talk in this address: http://developers.redhat.com/blog/2016/06/29/devnation-live-blog-building-reactive-applications-with-node-js-and-red-hat-jboss-data-grid/

At DevNation, Red Hat’s Galder Zamarreño gave a talk with a live demo, Building reactive applications with Node.js and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. The demo consisted of building an event-based three tier web application using JBoss Data Grid (JDG) as the data layer, an event manager running on Node.js, and a web client. Recently, support for Node.js clients was added to JDG, opening up the performance of a horizontally scalable in-memory data grid, to reactive web and mobile applications.
JDG is capable of processing and storing real-time streams of data, while maintaining very fast response times. It does this by using the memory available from a dynamically scalable grid of machines. Galder described JDG as a four-in-one package capable of being:
a distributed cache.
a high performance NoSQL primary data store.
an event-driven data store, particularly for real time event processing.
a big data and Internet of Things (IoT) data store.
The three-tiered web app in the demo consisted of:
An event manager running on Node.js using Express.js.
JBoss Data Grid as the data store. Three nodes were used, running on the same laptop. Each element was guaranteed to be stored in two nodes, providing redundancy for fail over.

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.

GeeCON 2016 is taking place in Krakow this coming week and I’ll be speaking about data processing with Infinispan’s distributed streams on Thursday, 12th of May. So, if you are interested in how to analyse your data using standard Java Streams API in a distributed environment, make sure you come to my talk! :)

This coming Friday, 11th March, I’ll be speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest about Distributed Data Processing with Infinispan and Java Streams. You can find out more about the this talk and other topics in an interview I did with Voxxed Days Bucharest organisers.
So, if you’re in Bucharest, make sure you come to Voxxed Days Bucharest to learn about Infinispan!! :)

DevConf.cz (Developer Conference) is a free annual conference for all Linux and JBoss Community Developers, Admins and Linux users organized by Red Hat Czech Republic in cooperation with the Fedora and JBoss communities. See more details on DevConf’s homepage.
Since it’s JBoss related conference, Infinispan cannot be missing there! We had two Infinispan related presentantions. First of them was presented by Jiří Holuša focusing on new features in Infinispan 8. The presentation also covers very gentle introduction to Infinispan in general.
The second one, named "From Big Data towards Fast Data", was given by Vojtěch Juránek and talked about latest trends in Big Data world. The presentation goes through the introduction about Big Data, mentions the problems with it and comes up with the term Fast Data. Some approaches are presented, how to solve this Fast Data phenomenon, ending up with new Infinispan Spark connector as one of the possible solutions.
Please, see the links below.

Last week the first ever Snowcamp was held in Grenoble where I presented about "Distributed Data Processing with Infinispan and Java Streams".
The talk went well and fortunately the demo gods were with me that day :). The code of the demo can be found in this Github repository. The slides will be available soon.
Of the presentations I attended, I was particularly impressed with the Apache Zeppelin talk that Saad Ansari presented where he demonstrated how to do interactive data analysis on top of Apache Spark, very cool!
It was a pleasure being selected to talk at Snowcamp and hope that next year I can speak there too!

I’ll be presenting about Infinispan’s in a couple of conferences over the next few months:
First up is SnowCamp 2016, a conference taking place in Grenoble from 21st to 23rd January. The talk I’m presenting is titled "Distributed Data Processing with Infinispan and Java Streams". Java 8 has made data processing easier than ever and with the help of Infinispan, that data processing can easily be done in a distributed manner. This talk is focused on showing how to use Java Streams to do distributed data processing with Infinispan, and how this approach compares with other data processing APIs Infinispan exposes.
Next, on the 11th of March I’ll be in Bucharest to speak at Voxxed Days Bucharest where I’ll again be talking about Distributed Data Processing with Infinispan and Java Streams.
So, if you’re in Grenoble or Bucharest, make sure you come to SnowCamp or Voxxed Days Bucharest to learn about Infinispan!! :)
