You are welcome to Oracle focused 83rd Devclub.lv on February 19 at 18:30, Zaļā iela 1, 4th floor (Microsoft Latvia office).

Agenda for Oracle focused 83rd Devclub.lv

  • Peteris Arajs from Accenture will give a talk “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure“.
    In the session we will show few client use cases, compare published costs and vendor lock in via Oracle, Azure and AWS.

    Peteris is Technology Architecture Manager at Accenture. Also experienced in all stages of software development life cycle (SDLC) from business  requirements and technical definitions to development, testing and production support.
  • Agnese Belousova from Accenture will give a talk “Oracle ERP Cloud (SaaS) options to integrate and manipulate data“.
    Quick review of ways to access database.  Options to integrate and validate large data amounts via standard file based data integrator. How to perform massive data fixes on SaaS. Review options for data exports and limitations.

  • Māris Elsiņš from Pythian will give a talk “Using Terraform to Manage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure“.
    “Managing the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure by using just the Cloud Console can get out of hand very quickly due to the vast amount of resources and their interdependencies that need to be controlled. It leads to weakened security, reduced availability or human mistakes in infrastructure management. Terraform – an open-source infrastructure as code software – allows solving many of these issues. This presentation will explain the basics of working with Terraform and will provide hints and examples for using it with OCI.”

Krišjānis will share real-life examples on how Mapon gathers, understands and uses valuable user experience data to make its products more easy-to-use.

Announcement of DevOps Unicorns Warmup 79th DevClub.lv

Hi!

As you most probably already know, next week will be DevOps Unicorns 2019 conference and we are lucky to get few of its speakers to DevClub. Actually several of them will be at DevClub just as visitors, but following will give talks. You are welcome to DevOps Unicorns Warmup meet-up on October 1 at 18:30, Zaļā iela 1, 4th floor (Microsoft Latvia office).

Agenda for DevOps Unicorns Warmup 79th DevClub.lv:

  • Viktor Farcic from CloudBees will give a talk “Choosing The Right Deployment Strategy”.
    Deployment strategies affect everyone, no matter whether we are focused only on a single aspect of the application lifecycle or we are in full control. The way we deploy affects the architecture, testing, monitoring, and many other aspects. And not only that, but we can say that architecture, testing, and monitoring affect the way we deploy. All those things are closely related and affect each other. We’ll discuss different deployment strategies and answer a couple of questions. Is your application stateful or stateless? Does its architecture permit scaling? How do you roll back? How do you scale up and down? Do you need your application to run always? Should you use Kubernetes Deployments instead of, let’s say, StatefulSets? Answers to those questions will not serve much unless we are familiar with some of the most commonly used deployment strategies. Not only that knowledge will help us choose which one to pick, but they might even influence the architecture of our applications.
    Viktor will also have workshop “Cloud-Native Kubernetes-First Serverless Continuous Delivery With Jenkins X, Kubernetes, And Friends” at DevOps Unicorns.
    (Language – English)
    Tags: DevOps, CD, Continuous Delivery

  • Peter Jausovec from Oracle will give a talk “Traffic Routing with Istio”.

Hi!

This time we have had a chance to invite two incredible international speakers, who are hosting full-day workshops on RigaDevDays conference – Venkat Subramaniam and Wei-Meng Lee. Wei-Meng will explain differences between cross-platform mobile development frameworks with a focus on Flutter. Venkat will guide you through Kotlin language features and how it could be used both for mobile and backend applications. Don’t miss this event if you are interested in modern languages such as Dart and Kotlin!

You are welcome on May 29 at 18:30, Zaļā iela 1, 4th floor (Microsoft Latvia office).

Agenda for Mobile focused 75th DevClub.lv:

  • Wei-Meng Lee will give a talk Cross Platform Mobile Development using Flutter.
  • Maintaining multiple code bases for the same application is often a pain in the neck for mobile developers. In the recent years, different frameworks have appeared in the market that aim to reduce the workload of developers by offering them a write-once-run-everywhere approach. In this session, Wei-Meng will take a quick look at the different frameworks available – Xamarin, React Native, and Flutter. He will focus on using Flutter and see how it makes your life as a mobile developer easier. (Language – English)

In this presentation we will look at some of the key features of Kotlin and what makes it an exciting language to program both server-side, client-side, and mobile applications. 
    (Language – English)
    Tags: Kotlin, multi-platform, JVM, Android, DSL
