Talks on Wurreka:

You've been to a restaurant before, right? Have you noticed how everything is structured? Everyone has a job and there is a chain of command. You can’t just walk into the kitchen and tell the cook how you want your steak done. Kubernetes is actually very similar to this. You will deploy some pods that do specific things and set the rules of communications that dictate how they all talk to each other. By expanding on the idea of a restaurant, the speaker will slowly introduce some of the basic concepts behind modern devops in a fun and easy to understand way. The attendees will come out of this talk with a whole new perspective on what kubernetes does and how to apply this in their software development practices.

The Web evolves quickly. We are far away from the days of Marquees and Blink. But learning the latest features of the latest ECMAScript implementation or the newest PHP framework isn’t everything. New Web APIs are constantly added to the browser. Did you know that your browser can process audio feeds, that it can connect to Bluetooth devices, or that it can send you notifications? Vendors are extending the capabilities of browsers more and more, especially for mobile devices. In this talk, attendees will learn some of the latest features available in their browsers right now and some that will be available in the very near future.
