NoSQL, Message Queues, Asynchronous programming, Web Sockets, Distributed Applications, Workers, HTML5 & CSS3, Decentralized Social Networks… and to the list of buzzwords we should add .. CUDA, Parallelisms, Big Data Streams, sure to be hot topics in 2012 !
September 24th 2011 Open World Forum / EUROSITES-George V 28, Avenue George V - 75008 Paris
A lot of hard computer science comes into the software components we use daily.
But when developers use the cool CS stuff it has been simplified and packaged away. Most of us after leaving school never read again a single research paper (if we ever did..).
Only, our bunch has been building larger and larger, more complex systems… we now have to deal with real time big data streams, with clustering and matching on huge sets of data, optimization problems etc..
So this time we we play with all our usual toys … with the perspective of people coming from the research sphere. When are "practical solutions" just not practical? When should you call the science guy in?
This is the fourth Parisian meetup for all those who like making fun architectures. It is held during the Open World Forum 2011, the leading global forum bringing together decisions-makers, developers and users from all over the world to cross-fertilize Open technological, business and societal initiatives to shape the digital future.
Are you a CTO and you ask yourself whether your software architecture is still adapted? you are creating a new startup and wonder what you should use? this meeting is a great moment to learn and share experiences on the current best practices.
Nowadays we don't create applications anymore, we create platforms. Platforms consist in several software layers and their orchestration make the success or failure of our projects. This orchestration, with respect to best practices, also makes the beauty of our developments.
The WebWorkersCamp is a meet-up for those wondering how to build robust platforms that can scale with traffic and evolve. This meeting targets both people working on general public applications and people who experimented the newest adequate technologies (asynchronous programming, websockets, NoSQL, waiting queues...). Individual developers, entrepreneurs, CIO and decision makers are invited to meet the actors of this great transformation in the IT landscape.
As for the previous edition, this BarCamp will be the occasion to exchange around the "fun/funny architectures" thematic: software architectures, real-time / distributed applications, decentralized social networks and all the components you need in your stack (NoSQL, asynchronous programming, messages queues...). These are the topics we announce, but you are the campers and you make the event! Don't be shy, come and share!
Of course we are preparing some stuff, inviting some people... but the last edition shown us that some of the best working groups came from regular campers!
Wikipedia : a BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.
