The most interesting lectures at the Warsaw Informatics days

The most interesting lectures at the Warsaw Informatics days

Warsaw informatics Days 2017 just around the corner. They start on March 28. There will be a lot of lectures, workshops, panels and events (as well as pizza). Today I will choose the ones that I think are the most interesting. I immediately say without beating: I am a backend, and the list is subjective. What is interesting to me may be completely indifferent to you dear programmer. In addition, I realize that I wrote a couple of lectures that are at the same time-I list what drew my attention.

28 March:

#ITcoreBanking – learn how to harness the huge scale from a JAVA analyst and developer
12: 10 – 13: 10, Auditorium 328
Well … the organizers gave us a description here (or at least I don’t see it on the official website), but I guess the lecture will be about the infrastructure, architecture and patterns that support the creation of the banking system. These systems are so cool that they pose very big challenges to developers and architects.

Machine Learning in R – introduction
12: 10 – 13: 10, Room 314, Adrianna Napiórkowska, Michalina Rozmarynowska, Olga Kujawska
At the same time as the previous lecture, a machine learning workshop will be held in R. This is one of the topics I would like to lean on this year. Especially since this branch of computer science is developing very rapidly. Unfortunately-basic knowledge of R is required.

Blockchain-the future of data sharing and online contracting
14:00 – 15: 00, Aula 328, Krzysztof Jurkowski
Blockchain is one of the most fashionable words nowadays. Something that until recently did not exist in the public consciousness, is now being implemented on a large scale (for example, in Microsoft Azure). Just look at the following chart of interest in the slogan “blockchain”, to make it clear that it’s time to get acquainted with the topic.

JavaScript on the server side-is not it?
16: 30 – 17: 30, Aula 329, Piotr Radosz
Good question. From the brief introduction to the lecture, I would bet that the author will answer “yes”. However, I am more interested in what questions, problems and answers he will present in order to come to this or that conclusion.

Cryptoparty: Internet of Shit-see how easy it is to hack
16: 30 – 17: 30, Aula 103, Marcin Karpezo, Paweł Chojnacki
Security issues in the context of the internet of things. There are two things that concern me in IoT-the abuse of privacy and the lack of security. The authors of this speech are likely to reinforce my concerns.

Design Sprint as a universal problem solver
16: 30 – 17: 30, Main Auditorium 107 / 227, Jakub Kołakowski
Methodology for finding new solutions dedicated to startups. However, it seems that it can also be used in mature teams-especially for grinding new paths, experimenting and general development.

29 March:

Security-oriented architecture
09: 30 – 10: 30, Aula 102, Marcin Dąbkiewicz
Perhaps for an ordinary backend user, problems like choosing datacenter can be tedious, but Mr. Marcin promises that “we will end up going deep into the security aspects at the code level – imperative and declarative”. And that could be as interesting as it gets.

Business Intelligence-class IT solutions to help fight fraud
10: 50 – 11: 50, Aula 329, Edyta Zdziarska
It sounds terribly serious and boring, but it is about detecting money laundering and other types of scams. It is always worthwhile to find out what the basic schemes of financial fraud look like in the world of online banking, payment gateways and mobile terminals.

Bugs, bugs, bugs… We’re looking for vulnerability!
10: 50 – 11: 50, Main Auditorium 107 / 227, Kamil Frankowicz
A lecture about the fact that bugs are everywhere-even where we do not expect them. For example, in biblical libraries, security-related products. The speaker will show some examples of vulnerabilities found in such code.

Schools: MVC, MVP, MVVM. But how are they different? What are their strengths and strengths?
12: 10-13: 10, Aula 102, Marcin Moskala
In the early days of web dev, writing logic in a view was a fashionable school, especially in PHP. Those days are behind us and we have MVC, MVP, MVVM. The author of the presentation will discuss these patterns and present their advantages and disadvantages. This is a lecture from the “advanced path”, so I expect a deeper analysis of these issues.

The way of the architect-in the thicket of systems
14:00 – 15: 00, Aula 103, Jarosław Pałka
A story about architecture and architects from a man who ate bread from many ovens. A lecture based on his own experience, an attempt to find meaning and harmony in the thicket of seemingly contradictory ideas. Presenting a look, a perspective, and not one, specific technology is for me the salt of the IT conference.

How to win with casino – TDD Live Coding
15: 20 – 16: 20, Aula 102, Grzegorz Kemski
It’s always the same with TDD. It’s a great idea, but it rarely works. The basic problem is that at the beginning you need to know exactly what is being done, and this is not always possible in our profession. Nevertheless-it is always worth seeing live how it looks, how it spins into the whole development, then you can try it yourself. I particularly recommend it to those who have heard about the concept but have not yet tried to implement it.

It is worth reviewing the agenda yourself, because there are many more events. There will also be speeches about frontend, game coding, trends in IT, data science, system administration, mobile programming and project management. There’s a lot of it, something nice for everyone.
