A Meetup on Programming Languages

Apr 28, 2018 · Bengaluru, India

We are pleased to announce a joint Meetup on Programming Languages in collaboration with BoJUG (Bangalore Open Java User Group): https://www.meetup.com/BangaloreOpenJUG/ & Core Java meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Core-Java-Meetup-Bangalore/.

This is a follow-on of our joint Meetup with Java Gurus (Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, Heather Vancura and Nikhil Nanivadekar) on 25th April.

Full-stack development (with polyglot programming) is becoming widely prevalent. This meetup brings together language & programming enthusiasts to

a) explore languages

b) address real-world challenges like debugging and optimizing

and c) deal with modern topics Big Data anaytics, containers and cloud.

With expert speakers lined-up, its sure to be an exciting day with lots of learning and networking.


10.15AM - 10.30AM - Welcome and Introduction

10.30AM - 11.30AM - Big Data Analytics for Domain Experts with MATLAB (Michelle Hirsch, Head of MATLAB Product Management, MathWorks).

Companies are scrambling to get insight from the massive quantities of data they collect but are struggling to find employees who combine the deep expertise in computer science, statistics and machine learning, and the domain expertise to truly understand the data.

In this talk, Dr. Hirsch discusses how MATLAB enables engineers and scientists to apply their domain expertise to big data analytics.

11.30AM - 11.50PM - Tea Break

11.50PM - 12.50PM - All about Node.js
(Sakthipriyan Vairamani, Node.js Technical Steering Committee (TSC) Member, Software Engineer @ PayPal)

In this talk, let's start the journey with the internals of Node.js. Let's understand what Node.js actually is, how the JavaScript code we write is actually executed, and how asynchronocity is achieved. Then let's discuss a few common and simple ways to optimize the javascript code. And then let's spend time understanding the basics of debugging Node.js applications.

01.00PM - 02.00PM - Lunch

02.00PM - 03.00PM - Designing & Building Secure APIs (Vivek Thuravupala, Software Engineer @ Postman)

We'll talk about the exploding usage of APIs and why security shouldn't be an afterthought when it comes to designing and building APIs. We'll also run through some concrete examples illustrating common pitfalls encountered while design/building.

03.00PM - 04.00PM - Cloud and Container Ready Java (Vaibhav Choudhary, Java Platforms Team, Oracle)

Java with all its recent changes are ready for Cloud and for Container. Let’s unfold the story:

Performance Improvement
Fast startup time
Low memory overhead
Respective to container boundaries, if any

The Meetup will have a mix of theory and practical sessions.

04.00PM - 04.20PM - Wrap-up & Networking


- The venue can accommodate around 250 people
- Basic WiFi network network connectivity will be provided
- 2 & 4 wheeler parking is available
- For registration desk, please carry a government ID proof

Event organizers
  • Polyglot Languages & Runtimes (Java, JVM, nodejs, Swift...)

    Developer1: "Which new language should I be looking to learn next?" Developer2: "What skills should I pick up to be an effective Cloud developer?" Developer3: "What language should I code the CPU-intensive part of my application in?" Welcome to the polyglot world..! Developers today are faced with an increasing array of languages that have evolved to meet specific needs and highlight specific functionality. Gone are the days when a language was meant to be as general-purpose as possible (Eg. Java - Write
