Alexa, start the presentation

Session language
This session will show you how to build Alexa skill from scratch and deploy it to AWS Lambda; from skill setup, to the code and manually built analytics.
Alexa, along with other voice assistants, is becoming more and more popular, and the number of skills is increasing almost exponentially.
Platform itself is growing but you can already build useful skills, either for your business or just for fun.

This talk will show you:
  • How to setup Alexa skill
  • How to define intents and slots
  • How to deploy the skill to AWS
  • How to test the skill
  • How to debug skill
  • What are the limitations of Alexa platform at the moment
  • And finally how to create simple analytics for your skills

Where did my messages go? Tracing distributed systems with OpenTracing

Session language
Having the ability to know where and when each message has been sent or received between your systems is becoming even more relevant today, where distributing components, like microservices, are becoming the defacto architecture in enterprises trying to develop distributed systems that scale.
Even when you have metrics and logging tools implemented, that’s not enough to recreate the journey of each transaction and how they propagate between components [1].
Tracing messages between distributed systems gives visibility over communication and performance per transaction received from a client, and how this propagates between different components around your systems.
Opentracing is an API that is aimed to standardize how systems can implement distributed tracing.
So, from the client (e.g. mobile, web), to the proxy, APIs, and backend systems (i.e. databases and messaging systems) mark how long it takes to communicate with each component.
This presentation will show how to instrument your Java applications with OpenTracing to be able to trace messages from web/mobile clients to your services and back to your data systems, and in this way, how to visualize, transaction per transaction, how your messages flows using a couple of the OpenTracing tools available, Uber's Jaeger [2] and Zipkin [3] .

Functional Refactoring

Session language
We start with a snippet of code and a handful of green tests to address a refactoring journey useful to explore and understand design concepts taken from the world of functional programming.

Live coding a Mondrian art generator in Elm

Session language
In this talk we will use the amazing powers of the Elm ecosystem to build a Mondrian art generator.
We will spend some time looking at Mondrian pieces to get a better idea of the pieces we want our program to create.
Then we will use the provided command line tools to start a project from scratch.
We will introduce some basic concepts of Elm and start composing our application.
A word of warning for the backend developers: even the CSS will be live coded, so come prepared.

The gigant mood-o-meter

Session language
I will demonstrate the real-time realization of a "sentiment-analysis" linguistic analyzer and, quickly, how to use it as a categorizer of comments on Reddit.
The comments on the social network in 2017 and Spark (with Scala code) will be used as the initial set to implement a classifier.
The predictive approach and data source could allow us to create a tool to measure the general mood of Reddit users, the most positive and most negative groups, and perhaps something we still do not know.

Adding Effortless to Serverless

Session language
Kick the new serverless buzzword hype and learn how to create and deploy a new serverless API in 10 minutes with AWS Lambda, API Gateway and Claudia.js.
There are lots of talks about serverless these days, but how can you avoid all that mystery and try it for yourself without reading many tutorials, documentation and watching lots of presentations?
This NoSlides talk will show you how to create your first serverless API in 10 minutes and then deploy it to AWS in seconds with Claudia.js.
Along the way, will also show why you don’t have to worry about scaling any more, how to structure your serverless APIs, separate your services, debug and where should you or should not use serverless, all in code.

Create your own DSL in Kotlin

Session language
Every API you create is, in fact, a domain-specific language for your business domain.
Kotlin is a general purpose programming language, but it offers some constructs, that make creation and usage of embedded DSLs effortless and fun. DSL makes your code expressive and easy to read.
In this talk, I'll show those language features and guide you through a process of creation of an internal mini language.
