Michal Kordas,
Michal Kordas

I'm a quality maniac with passion for Java, Groovy, JVM and fancy tools that automatically enforce quality and help test code in smart, fluent, and expressive ways.

I enjoy bringing feedback loops to the micro-level, and my main area of interest is agile testing.

For last 3 years I have been working in Luxoft as a fully cross-functional member of a strongly agile team as a "quality guardian" with a particular focus on well-written code, solid requirements, and efficient processes. I believe that being a truly good QA is not only about having testing-related skills. It's also about being software engineer with all the knowledge necessary to deliver production code of the highest possible quality.

Besides day work I’m also a contributor to the open-source tools related to Java code style and a Java and agile trainer in Luxoft training center.

Last 10 years I spent as developer. My career is strongly connected with finance industry. Most of clients I work with was financial companies like banks or insurance agencies. Through all those years I collect experience and knowledge about how to make good software. Today I know only that creating good software is really hard. However work in IT is an infinite source of fun and crazy cases.

Title of presentation: jUnit 5 – Holy Grail of unit tests

It will be short introduction to new version of jUnit – jUnit 5. We will take a look at the main changes in architecture of framework, Then we will discuss new way of test organization and how to migrate from jUnit4.

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..

Tomasz Włodarczyk

Hi, My name is Tomasz Wlodarczyk. I`ve been with the Software Development industry for 7+ years now. My professional path walked me through various roles and perspectives, fr om supporting engineering, manufacturing and logistic processes to designing banking systems. Prior to my industry tenure, I worked in academia, in a research university in USA doing my Ph.D. in Numerical Math and teaching. Professionally I combine personal creativity with desire to define work methodologies and personally I care for animal rights.

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.

Wojciech Gańcza

I started my adventure with programming in the middle of 80-s when first home computers appear in Poland, but I never studied computer science in well-organized form. Theoretical physics study ended with PhD in 1997 gives me a philosophic background to my self-development as a programmer.

During 15 years I work as a programmer and gives lectures for students of computation physics. I am not knotted to any programming language – assembler, lisp, C++, fortran – it is just a way of expressing the thoughts. I believe that most important is understanding, and I`m trying to find a way how to teach it, teaching physics and programming on all levels of education – from kindergarten up to programming masters.

Presentation: Simplicity – why it’s so complicated?

I will try to explain why the simplest solutions are the most difficult, and how to deal with these types of situations

More info about presentation - Title: Feedback Culture 

It's extremely easy to give an opinion about someone. It's extremely difficult to give an opinion which is going to make a difference. It's even more challenging to take it, accept and turn into action. Well constructed, thought-through, intelligent and swift feedback is an oxygen for everyday communication within engineering teams. It builds trust, respect and creates spirit of openness and stimulates creativity. Let's talk through some common feedback cases, have a laugh or two and learn together how to speak to each other.

With .NET for almost entire career. 12 years in IT with specialties ranging from cryptography to compiler design to multithreading. Huge supporter of proper system design and unit tests. Huge adversary of SharePoint and SAP ;-)

Presentation – "Voyage on a low level"

Nowadays many people take things for granted. High level solutions like ASP.Net MVC allow user to generate whole application with couple hundreds lines of code instead of couple thousands. Even though it pays off to know some basic low level structures and delve deeply into CLR to unleash power your .NET has under its bonnet. Presentation named "Voyage on a low level" will take you on the fast journey to .NET low level structures like MSIL or CodeDOM, but since it's 2015, we will talk a little bit about Roslyn

I have been playing with computer programming since my first Atari 800XL. Till now I have been: studying IT, fiddling with academic research, working as a Java programmer, going through the adventure of being a trainer and a scrum master. The opportunity to teach others , both at University and as company trainer changes the way I perceive programming, software engineering and everyday programmers’ practices. Now I try to show my colleagues that being a good developer is awesome, but being a good developer with a set of excellent habits it is just brilliant! That is why I focus my attention on topics like: TDD, ATDD, design patters and common sense.

That is why I focus my attention on topics like: TDD, ATDD, design patters and common sense.

I am a final year student at Jagiellonian University pursuing a degree in computer science. I have been working with Java for 2 years and recently I have been fascinated by front-end frameworks (Bootstrap & AngulaJS). I like to discover new languages, technologies. I put more trust in people than in processes and tools. Instead of blindly solving problems I prefer to ask if we’re solving the right problem.  As for my life outside work and university, you will most likely find me jogging, swimming or exercising at the gym.

I started my career as a C++ developer. Then I fell in love with Java for about 3 years. Currently however, I am trying to balance between Java and JavaScript. In weekends I study “Game Production” at the Jagiellonian University. Most of my free time I spend either on playing games or writing them. Mostly I play board games, trying to understand and recreate them in my virtual games. I do not have any global titles ready for market yet, mostly because when I try one idea and it feels OK I then feel this strong tension to try another idea continuing to perfect my original concept. I’m very active on many game jams, ludum dares contests or hackathons, my last success was 2’nd place at this year’s Epam Hackathon in Cracow. I won GGJ in Warsaw in 2011. Currently I'm collecting my patience and skills to go for something big in the near future.

I started from playing games as a child and in the end of primary school I started to learn writing algorithms in C/C++. When I got to university, Java time started for me. In the last few months I started to discover that it is impossible to write whole applications without using some front-end Technologies. At the time I had to adjust. Besides work I train MMA, climbing and I try to stay fit.

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.
