The Delhi-NCR Java User Group in partnership with Women Who Code - Delhi organized two amazing sessions and speakers to the fellow users.
✓ Session 1: Sail smoothly in the Cloud - An introduction to Istio
The first generation of microservices was primarily shaped by Netflix OSS and leveraged by numerous Spring Cloud annotations all throughout your business logic. The next generation of microservices will leverage sidecars and a service mesh. In this session, Kamesh gave a taste of Envoy and Istio, two open source projects that will change the way one writes Cloud Native, Java Applications on Kubernetes.
This session also explored a few interesting concepts of Microservice Architecture like Distributed Tracing, Circuit Breakers, Request routing, Traffic shaping, network fault-injection, A/B testing, dark launches and much more.
Duration: 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM

✓ Session 2: Four-Ts for Multiplying Developer Productivity
Increasing developer productivity in software has consistently eluded managers and engineering leaders.
The history of software application development is dotted with attempts to achieve higher productivity like the advent of Iterative/Incremental, Agile, Scrum, Lean, Kanban, Extreme programming, TDD and variants of these. While these being effective in their own ways, they were only a minor increment over the previous methodologies.
What needed is a multi-pronged approach of Tools-Technologies-Techniques-and-Training to supplement a mindset to transform software engineering to multiply productivity while approaching a zero-defect goal.
This session was for stakeholders of software engineering functions in technology organizations and deep dived into the leveraging of these 4 levers of Tools-Technologies-Techniques-and-Training in their respective organizations.
Duration: 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM
