Presentation: How Reactive Streams and Akka Streams change the JVM ecosystem
Reactive streams are a shared effort of multiple companies (such as Netflix, Typesafe, RedHat, and Pivotal) and individuals striving to implement stream processing libraries to make the stream processing on the JVM common and back-pressured. Their recent 1.0.final release will fundamentally change the JVM ecosystem, providing an interop protocol between different streaming libraries such as Akka Streams and RxJava. This session looks into the core concepts of reactive streams and how “dynamic push-pull-based back pressure” works in them. Then it discusses details of the Akka Streams library and how it enables you to express arbitrarily complex stream layouts with very good readability and performance..

Goals and Requirements – Picture IT … How to Visualize a Project
For quite a while now, the notion of a Goal and approaches to goal setting, both in professional and personal lives, has been surfacing frequently, and in various situations. We seem to live in times, wh ere having a plan is key. In IT we, in turn, continuously speak about Requirements, and in Agile Teams about Backlogs. And in general we, perhaps, complain... about lack of time, mostly ;). In this talk, I intend to stir the reality a bit by declaring somewhat bluntly that "Project Management is dead... Long live the Project Management" and elaborate on the, somewhat controversial, saying that "managing project is about maximizing work NOT done". I will carry on the talk in the spirit of "functional decomposition" presenting a graphical perspective on the matter and employing the approach to its agenda as well.

Presentation: You don’t need unit tests!
How often did you hear developers who were proving quality of their application’s code by sharing information about really high coverage and a huge number of unit tests? How often did you hear how unit tests can make your life easier. How having unit tests makes it possible to introduce changes and make refactoring safier? Do you believe in it? What’s your experience? I will show you why all of those “proofs” are invalid and wrong. I will show you the false impression of feeling safe in those dangerous places where your code is covered only with tones of unit tests.
But it won’t be all. I won’t leave you alone in this place. I will tell you what you can do to make things better. I will show you the difference between coverage and quality. Between unit tests and safety.
