Too many conferences sessions are entirely based on slideware full of engaging pictures and funny slogans

Sharing something that can only be learned by experience is way more effective when practical examples are involved!

NoSlidesConf is about step-by-step technical sessions showing how to get code up and running: 45-minute demos with live changes to code and configuration

Let us build a feature on Trivago

A feature implementation in the production codebase of one of the biggest metasearch engines worldwide. Trivago is a highly data driven company and this session will show how we implement an A/B test into our core product. The demo will show the lifecycle of a feature, from implementation, through testing, review and finally to deployment.

Advanced search for your legacy application

How do you mix SQL and NoSQL worlds without starting a messy revolution? This live coding talk will show you how to add Elasticsearch to your legacy application without changing all your current development habits. Your application will suddenly have advanced search features, all without the need to write complex SQL code! David will start from a RestX, Hibernate and Postgresql/MySQL based application and will add a complete integration of Elasticsearch, all live from the stage during his presentation.

Understanding Git

If you understand the Git way of thinking, you can truly profit from it instead of fighting against it. And yet, most Git trainingst will teach you the commands, not the underlying model. Focus on the model, and you'll find that Git is simpler than you think. Here is how it works.

Crowd-controlling a game with Elixir and Phoenix

In this demo, we're going to build a crowd-controlled game with Elixir and Phoenix. Elixir is a young and exciting language based on the battle-tested Erlang and Phoenix is an Elixir framework for the modern web. With these tools, we're gonna be able to create a fault-tolerant, scalable, real-time game that the audience will be able to control from their browser: everyone at the same time, of course! In the process (pun intended, you'll get it after the demo!), we're gonna learn the basics of Elixir and Erlang, get excited about how cool they are, have a look at Phoenix, and discuss more serious things that can be done with these technologies, such as making a ton of fault-tolerant, scalable, real-time money!

Predicting Titanic survivors with machine learning

What's a better way to understand machine learning than a practical example? And who hasn't watched the classic 1997 movie? In this session, we will implement various machine learning tecniques step-by-step to predict the chance of survival of Titanic passengers, backed by real historical data and some amazing Python libraries.

Geospatial graphs made easy with OrientDB

Modeling and querying persistent data structures can be tricky when they involve semi-structured data, complex relationships (with deep traversal) and physical information like geographical positions, areas, shapes and so on. Bad news is that almost all modern applications have to manage such kind of data. In this session we will see how to use OrientDB v2.2 Document-Graph engine and its new Geospatial Indexes to efficiently manage and query connected, spatial information. Of course we will also display these data on an Angular2+GoogleMaps front-end.
