Want to write Node.JS applications and want someone to show you the ropes? In this workshop we will go through a quick paced introduction to node.JS, and will introduce the basic principles of writing evented IO applications. For the more advanced developers it will be interactive on the depth of certain subjects.
Grace Murray Hopper's famous motto, "It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission", has many useful applications -- in Python, in concurrency, in networking, as well of course as in real life. However, it's not universally valid. This talk explores both useful and damaging applications of this principle.
Do you have Siri envy? Are you sick of those smarmy iOS developers touting the benefits of their platform? Well you shouldn’t be as most iOS developers will never be able to hook into the private Siri API. Instead why don’t you learn more about the android.speech package and enable Speech Recognition and Text to Speech functionality in your Android apps today. This presentation will give a brief overview of the basics and best practices of Speech Recognition. Then we will quickly put together an application using Speech Recognition for input and TTS for output that can answer almost any question you put to it.

As applications become more distributed, virtual and elastic, many organizations are losing their grip on application performance and scalability. This session will use customer case studies to look at the biggest performance bottlenecks of the past year, as well as best practices around finding and troubleshooting them.
This session explores the concept of the network as a source of truth for distributed applications and offers a deep-dive into higher-level problems that often manifest early at level 3. Tying network and application behavior together offers a powerful cocktail for finding and fixing problems in distributed applications quickly while also ensuring timely responses to clients spread across the net.
