Title: Getting the Perfect Branching Pattern in Small to Medium Teams for Source Control.

Various Branching Patterns I have tried to improve how
we have distributed software to key-players in our development process
and how it has improved our businesses delivery over the past few

Facilitator: Jonathan Pearl

Title:  Reactive Microsystems

Microservices comes in systems. Reactive microsystems are systems of microservices that are scalable and resilient. In this talk I will look at reactive programming and event sourcing techniques and principles that helps us design and build reactive microsystems. I might even refer to examples that was done using Akka.io. 

Facilitator: Herman Lintvelt

Herman started coding in primary school, and shortly after receiving his Computer Science degree at Stellenbosch, he started his own business. He attempted to present various courses over the years, but mostly so he can learn interesting stuff. More recently he discovered microservices and reactive programming and akka.io, and he’s been having a lot of fun with it and even helped a digital health startup to build there platform using this approach.

Title: Pioneers and town planners - best practice is dead

Handling a mature enterprise product without care might get you into serious trouble, but spending months and years gold plating a startup idea will ensure a slow and painful death. New products and mature enterprise products require different approaches.

Although this might seem like common sense, most debates about software practices are still based on the assumption that there is one best practice for all context. Luckily, our industry as a whole is also learning and this idea has finally entered the software industry Zeitgeist in various guises: Kent Beck’s 3X, Jeff Patton’s Dual Mode IT, Simon Wadley’s work.

In this talk I will share these ideas, and show practical examples of how a software best practice in one situation might be the worst in another. I will end off with my own thoughts on the fundamental paradigm shift out industry is going through.

Facilitator: Jacques de Vos I'm founder of nReality and a software engineer who divides my time between coaching software development teams and building software products, mostly mobile (both native and hybrid). Most of my experience has been in developing crucial font-end applications in the financial industries: online trading, online banking, insurance and branch banking.
