Why Bother With Kotlin - Not Just Another Language Tour

Most presentations introducing a new programming language are really just simple language tours.  A lot of interesting language features are shown but it's not always clear *why* one would choose to adopt that new language. This presentation will start by looking at the layout and syntax of...

Seamlessly Migrating To Serverless with 80-Million Users

Is your talk a story of a migration to a serverless architecture through a devops lens or maybe are you talking about practices and patterns for serverless? What's the angle that you're taking with your talk?

I'm starting with just building a little bit of a foundation for what I feel devops actually is. There's a lot of charts about like the process project creation, packaging, releasing, and monitoring in a serverless world. Then start talking about devops for us.

Why Bother With Kotlin - Not Just Another Language Tour

Why should a developer come to this talk?

The way I like to describe Kotlin is that it has a lot of the advanced features that as a Java developer I'd look at Scala for. These are things that I think would be so nice if I could do it in Java. Kotlin has some of these nicer features, but it doesn't have all the complexity that Scala has. For me, Kotlin is a nice middle ground...
