[SLIDES]Boyan Mihaylov @bmihaylov - Stop the Internet, I want to go offline
Traditionally we consider web sites to be working in an online mode only. If the Internet connection drops, the entire web site stops functioning. Mobile applications, however, change this perception as connection is considered unstable and applications should take necessary measures for good user experience. Now we are able to create web sites that react on changes in the Internet connection and provide certain functionality offline. AppCache, IndexedDB and File API are few of the mechanisms to allow us to store the application and its data in the browser. However, now we have some questions to think about: Who is the master of the data - the client or the server? What data should we download in advance? How do we handle updates of the application? In this talk I will give overview of how web applications can go offline and which precautions we should take.

Valentyn Shybanov @olostan - Breaking Monolith into pieces: Cloud Essences
Cloud Technologies brings a huge challenge to Enterprises that have successful products. You can’t just stop developing new features and develop “cloud-ready” application from scratch. During this talk we’ll try to go through most important steps of migrating from monolith-style applications into micro-service based that utilize best cloud features: PubSub, gRPC etc.

[SLIDES]Mindaugas Mozūras @mmozuras - Engineering for Engineering's Sake
Code is a not an asset. Technology is not the solution to your company problems. And engineering for engineering's sake is not the answer. As engineers, we tend to focus a lot of our time thinking about "how?". How to solve this problem? How to structure code? How to name this method? We forget to ask "why?" and ponder the usefulness and greater impact of what we're doing. We don't work in silos. What we do affects our users. But not only that. It also affects our teammates and other developers in our organisations. Let's talk about why, having aforementioned things in mind, we should aim to write less code. Use less and more mature technologies. And don't do engineering for engineering's sake.

Quentin Adam @waxzce - Understand immutable infrastructure, what? Why? how?
Why everybody is speaking about Immutability? Immutable infrastructure? The All IT automation ecosystem need to rely on the append only, remove historical management of servers. This talk explain what is immutable infrastructure, how to build it, and how to manage data in this infrastructure pattern. It will cover pattern to use it on containers or virtual machine world.

[SLIDES]Arthur Evoyan - Scalability of systems. Points of view and approaches.
In software development company there is always a conflict between developers and system administrators especially when it comes to the subject of scalability. Having experience in both gave me an opportunity to see it from both sides and experience in creation of scalable sysyems which I would like to share.

Key points

Why do we need scalability
Types of scalability
Who is supposed to do that
Facts from experience
Modular approach

Dylan Beattie @dylanbeattie - Webmasters, Full Stack Developers and Other Legends
Once upon a time, when the web was young, phones were dumb and people still thought progressive JPEGs were a pretty neat idea, there were people who called themselves... THE WEBMASTERS. They were brave, they were bold. Armed with a 56k modem and a stack of O'Reilly books, the webmasters were fearless in their ongoing quest, driven by a humble vision - to connect the entire world together. Using Netscape Navigator. Of course, that was a long time ago, and nobody really believes the stories any more. Some say the webmasters are gone. Some say they never existed in the first place - it was just a bunch of marketing people with delusions of grandeur. But a few, a select few, believe they changed. They evolved. They learned new skills, they embraced new technology... and the Legend of the Full Stack Developer was born. The history of software development is rich with tales of extraordinary individuals, whose knowledge of their own systems was absolutely unrivalled. But here in 2016, in a world where distributed systems, machine learning and autoscaling cloud systems are ubiquitous and the average web app uses three JavaScript frameworks, four server-side languages and six different kinds of caching technology, does it really make any sense to talk about full stack developers? Are we clinging to outdated paradigms, nostalgic for the simple days when one person really could know all the answers - or does overspecialisation represent a genuine threat to the established discipline of software development? And if it does - should we be resisting it, or embracing it as a change that's long overdue?

[SLIDES]Tim Cools @timcoolsnet - Road to polyglot persistence
With the rise of many new types of databases in the last decade, the present-day architects have powerful solutions for building modern software systems. These databases solve specific problems and have many advantages. But using and integrating these database also has pitfalls and can be challenging to put in practice. In this talk you learn about different types of databases and their use-cases and solutions to integrate them. You also hear about the strengths and the weaknesses of combining several type of databases in the same system, a practice called Polyglot Persistence.
