Description

Agenda:

6:30 PM: Arrival, registration, networking and raffle sign up

7:00 PM: Intro to Zopa meetup - Innovation of Engineering from Ronen Benchetrit – CTO

7:30 PM: Monitoring - The search for the silver bullet - Peter Meckiffe – Java Developer

A deep dive into how we at Zopa have attempted to solve the age old problem of monitoring. From SQL based triggers, to logging and metrics; Peter will go over the myriad solutions we've attempted, and the lessons we've learned in the search for our monitoring silver bullet.

8:00 PM: Hannes Stockner – Is Java still alive - Tech Lead

Go, JavaScript, Scala, Kotlin, ... claim to be the programming languages for building simple and reliable microservices.

But what about Java? Is Java still stuck in the world of layers and dependency injection frameworks?

I'll show how we at Zopa try to think in a more declarative way and how we can achieve a more concise and expressive design of our software with Java.

8:30 PM: Food and drinks provided
