OPEN TALK: Robots as a Platform
In the next 10+ years, we will live in a world where robots are embedded into our daily lives as our friends, teammates, and even as part of our families. Robots will perform helpful tasks, ensure our safety, and interact with us in friendly ways only currently known to science fiction. To get there, we need a programmable robot to "democratize" robots-- move them out of the world of "roboticist" and into a world where software developers can invent thousands of useful skills for everyday life. In this session, Chris Meyer, Head of Developer Experience at Misty Robotics, will explore how the future of robotics begins with a developer platform and what it will take to get to there. He will share some topics that Misty’s community of developers are currently exploring in-depth, including personality and autonomous AI.

OPEN TALK: My Python Machine Learning App Went from 2 Fps to 70 Fps on the Same Platform How Did We Do That?
Python is the most popular programming language in the world. According to the IEEE, Python is the key language used across multiple disciplines from machine learning, embedded vision to science, education and increasingly embedded applications at the edge. 

However due to the intense computation required by these applications, it can be difficult for developers of these applications to achieve the desired performance targets. The traditional way to address this challenge is to increase the processing capacity, which is a double edged sword as it increases power demands which negatively impacts many edge based applications. 

There is however, another way to increase performance using Python while still achieving power targets. This is to make use of the Xilinx PYNQ framework, PYNQ enables Python developers to access the parallel performance offered by programmable logic without the need to be a programmable logic developer. 

This session will outline how you can use Python in combination with the PYNQ frame work to accelerate your application, explaining the PYNQ Python APIs and Packages which enable interaction with the programmable logic and the wider PYNQ community.

KEYNOTE: Meetup -- The Four Components of High Performing Teams
Do you have a great team & a great mission but don't understand why the pace of delivery is so slow? Architecture & tech stack is only one part of the story.
I believe high performing teams need four things to be effective:
Mastery - The skills & knowledge needed to do a great job, and a clear path to get to the next level.
Autonomy - The space to figure out their own solution to a problem & how they want to work
Purpose - A clear sense of direction, and the knowledge of how what they’re working on fits into the big picture & helps their team succeed.
Safety - A team that is afraid won’t take risks or experiment, a team that is afraid of finger-pointing won’t learn from mistakes.
In this talk I’ll explain why those four things are key to teams being successful and give examples of how I’ve turned teams around by fixing the lack of one or more of them. Attendees will leave with practical examples of how to diagnose & change their teams.

OPEN TALK: Digital Transformation of the NYC School System
History of Products in the Largest School System in the World We have a lot of legacy applications maintaining data for the past 40-50 years. Over the period we moved a lot of manually processes to automated processes creating more burdens and data volume to our legacy system, keep in mind we have to maintain data for many year at one time. Performance and fast deployment were becoming key factors. Staring from 2012 we took a step back and re-creating our architecture and products. My team supports all Financial and HR transaction in the agency. Modernizing Financial Products In 2012 we started evaluating different techniques and methodologies. As we were Microsoft shop in 2012 we trying to user C#,Asp.net for web end, MSMQ were introduced to stream data between different components. SQL server was our main database. This did not help significantly and the bottle neck remains with data retrieval and data processing. In 2014 - We did another round of POC but this time we used node.js with express and Angular, Redis as enterprise message bus and mongoDB as backend data store. To our surprise the performance were greatly improved. Our financial transaction performance were improved by 300% In 2015-18 - We took the POC and started converting into main stream product contains HR and Financial data for the agency. Maintenance becomes easy as previously we are maintain hundreds of tables in SQL where-as all those were converted into handful of collections. Policy changes comes to us on a rapid pace and it’s easy to add more data in the mongoDB without compromising any data layer. Scalability was awesome; room and experimental freedom was key for many architecture. 2018-19 - We started introducing micro services, with streaming in Kafka and connecting Kafka and mongoDB to bring data from all other systems to mongoDB and make this as single source of truth. Also, we are doing POC with spark and mongoDB so that all analytics and data processing can be done from one platform which we can’t achieve if we stick to our old database. Performance We improved 300% improvement in single transaction. We do millions of transaction per day. Data Growth Not to worry about archiving as the mongoDB is now able to handle huge data load for many years Development Productivity Due to introduction of modern technologies our development productivity increase more than 100%

OPEN TALK: Break Up Your Services Using the Reconciliation Pattern
The most important thing I’ve learned as a professional developer is how to write easy-to-test code, and code is easy to test when you break up complex pieces into smaller units. Now what happens if we break up complicated services the same way we break up complicated blocks of code? Let’s take what makes code easy to unit test and apply it to service design.

Whether you want to accelerate time to market, reduce bugs, or make it easier to add features and iterate -- with the Reconciliation Pattern (used by Kubernetes and React) I’ll show you how you can break up complex workloads into smaller easy to test pieces at the services layer & walk you through a real-world example of how we’ve successfully deployed this pattern for services at WP Engine.

OPEN TALK: Why Designers & Developers Need a Common Language
We hear it all the time; Management has a list of requirements for a new product line. The design team is tasked with designing; the dev team is tasked with building, and after reading 1,000 grueling feature requirements everyone reluctantly signs off on a release date. Then the real fun begins. The design team gets creative. The dev team gets technical. Product requirements are incorrect (or missed), Ego’s collide, and the whole team stresses to meet rapidly approaching deadlines. Where did the communication break down? Why can’t team members all speak the same language? We’re here to tell you that they can, and it starts with process. During this presentation, we’ll show you how to train your team to work more effectively together and how to establish a “common language” to overcome cross-disciplinary obstacles. This talk will highlight case studies, examples, and procedures the audience can use to better their lives and their product development lifecycle.

OPEN TALK: When Your Best Developers Leave, Does Their Knowledge About Your Code Leave with Them?
Given that employee turnover is highest in tech companies among all industries, chances are your best developers will leave and someone new will have to take over your codebase within the next 18 months. Where is the knowledge your development team has created and shared stored today? If you are like most companies, the answer is not encouraging. Developers report spending as much as 75% of their time trying to understand existing code, while fewer than 20% learn about their code from internal tools and documentation. Peter Pezaris, CEO of CodeStream, will share insights, techniques and solutions aimed at solving the knowledge gap for development teams over time.

OPEN TALK: Reclaiming Javascript: Building Scalable Web Components with React, Redux, GraphQL, Webpack and Docker
This is perhaps the most exciting time to be a Javascript developer. New npm packages are being released almost everyday; likewise, new frameworks, libraries and websites are being launched to help developers plug into the ecosystem. 

In this osmosis of ideas, technologists and developers are building new open source projects and pushing the frontiers of Javascript. Indeed, this new climate offers unprecedented opportunities to grow and excel as a Javascript engineer. 

However, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and lost in this sea of information - developers may find it difficult to choose optimal libraries to build scalable systems that can offer the best possible user experience. 

Menelaos Kotsollaris is well aware of these challenges; as a software engineer at Trulioo, the world’s leading identity verification company, he authored EmbedID, an open source npm package, that enables organizations to verify the identity of individuals around the world, using only a snippet of code. 

This will be a live coding presentation with a Q&A at the end. It will cover:

- How to configure Webpack to extract custom packages that can be utilized by other developers using npm commands
- How to test these components
- How to separate UI from state using Redux-Thunk
- Showcase GraphQL integration with AWS
- Showcase Hashicorp vault for API Key storage
- How to utilize css-in-js technologies to apply styling into components
- How and when to re-factor codebase

KEYNOTE: Foursquare -- Why You Need a Phone’s-Eye-View of the World
In the near future, a digital twin of the world will exist via new technologies, and Foursquare will be there to help developers power it with our phone’s eye view of millions of places. It’s the magic of Pilgrim—our proprietary tech with industry-leading precision and stop detection—that makes all of this possible. The engineers who understand how to use it will have a leg up bridging the gap between location data and understanding of the real world. In its 10 years, Foursquare has always been thinking about the future of location-based and contextual-aware services, and working to invent the pieces of this future that didn’t yet exist. In his first Developer Week session, Foursquare SVP of Engineering Matt Kamen will raise the curtains behind how Foursquare solved the most complex problems inherent in location technology -- like understanding where a phone is in a multi-level, multi-purpose building (ie. shopping malls), as one example. Today, Pilgrim SDK helps developers understand how mobile phones see the world—quietly, efficiently, no action required. Foursquare has evolved from a search and discovery explorer app into something much bigger: the first independent location technology platform. Kamen will unpack the lessons learned along the way, via the creation and commercialization of Pilgrim and our belief that it can help developers create the next generation of contextually-aware services. Kamen’s talk will include: an inside look into how we built our proprietary Snap-to-Place machine learning technology that helps accurately “snap” visits to identifiable venues; our approach to privacy by design; our methodology to separate good data from bad; and a look into the new building blocks Foursquare is inventing to help developers create the future.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Re-Training ML Models without Data Auditing Is like Skydiving without Parachutes
Re-training deployed ML models is required for adapting to changing user patterns. But real-world data pipelines for re-training data are messy — from unexpected source changes/null values during ingestion to referential integrity problems across databases. The end result is is a mix of low and high quality data that is detrimental to model accuracy leading to unexpected bias as well as significant deviation errors. Additionally, debugging of such issues becomes a ping-pong blame game between ML and Data Engineering teams. This talk describes how we address the issue with our framework called ML Contracts Escrow. A contract defines how model training needs to be handled depending on the quality of data. There are two building blocks of the framework: a) Automatically profiling the data pipeline tracking operational properties, data quality, and configuration change tracking across all components of the pipeline including the data sources; b) Enforcing the contract that either schedules or alerts or defers the model training. The Data Engineering team is responsible for the profiling of the pipeline. The ML team focusses on the other half of the contact that specifies how different data profiling scenarios need to be handled. The framework supports a range of contract actions such as handling anomaly in job profiling to trigger a data circuit breaker or canceling re-training or change online training to offline manually triggered policy, etc. The talk covers details of the framework in the context of handling real-world data pipeline issues.

OPEN TALK: Low-Code Development Tools: Game Changing, or Game Over?
As developers, we take the risk of adopting new tools and frameworks because we’re tired of wasting time doing boring, choreful, low-value tasks with code. We want to get to the good stuff - the interesting work where we’re pushing our code into the future to solve problems that matter.

We’re rightfully skeptical of “no-code solutions” that claim to “solve” the problems of code debt and boilerplate productivity, but force us to surrender our code or compromise on design - which is not gonna happen.

There’s a new breed of low-code tools that let us rapidly build out legit apps that scale and work beautifully, but let us reach for code when we need to build beyond what comes in the box.

The pitch: we’re Skuid, this is what we do, and we want to show you that this is real. ln 20 minutes we will:
  • Launch a free-forever developer site
  • Setup read/write data connections to REST and SQL backends
  • Assemble a componentized UI surfacing that data with two-way bindings
  • Interact with app from Chrome console using Skuid’s JS API
  • Integrate with source control and continuous integration using Skuid CLI
  • Extend with code using a custom component from Skuid Labs

Forcing developers to compromise is history; the age of harmonious declarative and extensible development has begun. Come and see.

OEPN TALK: Sustaining Product Innovation: Turning “Aha Moments” into Products
Some of the greatest product innovations began with the question: “You know what would be cool? If we could just...” 

In a disruptive landscape, where change is rapid, and inevitably upends the status quo, product, engineering and R&D teams are always bristling with new ideas. 

Sometimes good ideas are born from sudden flashes of insight or discovery; if they seem particularly promising, developers and engineers are quick to apply lean startup principles to quickly prototype and validate them. 

But what happens next? Do we keep building on them? Do we rework them? Do we discard them so that they join the growing pile of other aborted ideas? 

These are hard questions; and, to answer them, one must consider a slew of factors: Opportunity costs, resource allocation, technical considerations, buy-ins from senior management, among other serious considerations that stand in the way. 

Join Trulioo’s Conor Delahunty and Marat Asadurian, as they call upon their own challenges and experiences in building something entirely new while working within the constraints of existing product roadmaps. This talk will cover: 

- Balancing ideas with expectations around delivering actual code and features 
- Wanting to do a lot, but being unable to execute on pace 
- Sustainable Prototyping: Throw-away vs build-on-top
- Ensuring a continuous feedback loop
- Acting on new ideas without burdening the rest of your team with extra work
- Turning problems and obstacles into new learnings

FEATURED TALK: Finding Mission-driven Work in Tech
If you want to do work that is mission driven, how do you find an organization that utilizes your skill set while also making a positive social impact? We will review a framework for finding work with deep impact that drives and fulfills on a daily basis. Early career software engineers will come away with actionable steps to help them in their search for social impact driven tech jobs. AUDIENCE Recent graduates, early career, and mid-career software engineers searching for social impact driven tech jobs. This topic may also be relevant for those more advanced in their careers, but who are seeking to find more purpose within their work INTRODUCTION The stereotype of a software engineer is that of a unidimensional nerd who lives in their parents‚ basement and has no social skills. The truth is that software engineering is actually one of the most versatile professions. Software engineers have many skills ‚Äì project management, building mobile apps, web products to name a few. It is applicable in a range of industries like healthcare, education, pharma, ecommerce, automobiles, agriculture, finance. Not all skills are so transferable and it's truly a privilege. This struck me recently when I was at the 2018 Grace Hopper Conference where I met and interviewed so many incredible women in tech. Many fresh graduates there echoed a common theme about wanting to use technology for social good. This post is for those of you who want to use your software engineering skills for social impact. If you‚ interested in doing something that is mission driven, or using your skills to do good and have positive social impact, where do you go from there? How do you find an organization that utilizes your unique and powerful skill set, while also making a positive social impact? I understand that there are many factors that go into choosing a job: location, salary, team, size of the organization and others. But a decade ago, during the height of the financial crisis, I made a decision to find meaningful work with a social impact driven organization. But I was clueless about how to go about it. Luckily, my decisions though unconventional, led me down the right path. I got a master‚ degree in Public Policy with a focus on harnessing technology for social good. Over the years I created, consulted for, interned, and worked with many organizations across the globe who are driven by a desire to create social impact. I have distilled this experience to create the following simple framework to help recent graduates and early career software engineers in their search for social impact driven tech jobs.What is the mission of the organization and does it align with your own values? This seems like a simple question, but it requires a bit of introspection. Your values don‚ have to only be your moral values, but they can also be your hobbies and interests. I have a keen interest in policy and politics, but also love shopping for unique artisanal products and it‚ a combination of all these that led me to my current job at Etsy. What is the mission of the organization? Do they fulfill their mission? Many organizations claim that they have a social mission because it sounds cool. You need to investigate this claim a little to make sure that the organization is not just paying lip service to a social mission. Check if they are practicing what they are preaching. Find out what how they define impact and how they measure it. A lot of this information is publicly available, you just need patience to unearth it. You can find it in their blogs, annual reports and most importantly by talking to their employees, which leads me to my next point.What is the organizational culture like? This is the part that requires the most work. It is crucial to understand organizational culture and whether the organization‚ commitment to social change reflects in how they treat their employees. Finding this out is hard work since this information is not in the public domain. Even though it‚ time consuming, invest time in studying the internal workings of the organization. Speak to your professional network about the organization and try to talk to at least a few of their employees. Before I joined Etsy, I went to their code as craft event and met an employee who was doing a job similar to what I was looking for. Talking to them was really helpful in understanding how Etsy worked. Don‚ hesitate to ask questions about organizational culture during your interview process. What ability will you have to make impact and change at the organization? Your job satisfaction will depend as much on your role within the organizational structure as much as the work the organization does as a whole. Of course, this is more important if you are applying for a senior position, but it‚ useful to consider this even at entry-level positions. One of my jobs was at an incredible mission driven organization, but its bureaucracy made it difficult to bring about internal change. I like nimble organizations that are open to new ideas and change. While looking for a job it‚ important to remind oneself that no job is a 100% match. It‚ similar to a romantic relationship. My husband is not a 100% match for me. We have wildly differing tastes in music, sports and most importantly in food. But our value systems are similar and that is what really matters. Like an ideal partner, an ideal employer should give you the space to grow as an individual. It‚ also important to remember that social change takes time, dedication and commitment. If you have the commitment and patience for such work, invest time and patience in finding an organization that demonstrates similar commitment, not just on the surface but even in its internal processes. If you cannot find such an organization, maybe it‚ time to start one of your own. OUTCOMES/CONCLUSION By the end of this session, participants will have: A better understanding of themselves, more specifically what drives them from a purpose/mission perspective, A framework to follow when researching potential job and career growth opportunities, Questions to ask themselves and their potential employers when going through the hiring process

OPEN TALK: Trying to Understand Someone Else’s Code Is a Drag. An Approach to Radically Improve the Process
Research indicates that developers working on large codebases spend as much as 75% of their time understanding existing code, instead of solving real problems. That is both a hit on productivity as well as a source of dissatisfaction on the job. Lack of institutional knowledge about the company’s codebase is a main contributor to this situation, in which 80% of developers report that they do not use existing company documentation in their work. In this presentation you will learn how to address this knowledge gap, and improve productivity and job satisfaction for developers.

Reactive is one of the buzzwords in the programming world.  So what does reactive really mean, and why should we as systems architects and developers care?  This talk gives an introduction to reactive systems and programming. It starts by going over the basic tenets of reactive systems, and explains the differences between reactive programming on the coding level, and reactive systems design on the architecture level.  It will then compare reactive programming with the traditional imperative programming paradigm, and discusses about how reactive programming is structured around the asynchronous data streams, events, messages, and the Observer design pattern. It will highlight the benefits of reactive systems as well as a few of the challenges that these systems face.  A few popular Java and Javascript reactive frameworks and toolkits will also be mentioned.

Previously, the 33Across platform helped publishers make money from their ad space by connecting with a variety of supply side platforms (SSPs). The problem? These third-party SSPs weren’t driving enough revenue. So, 33Across needed a way to connect to demand sources directly using their own SSP to increase margins, improve user experience for client audiences, and cut the costs of paying middle men SSPs.
