Tracks at GOTO Aarhus 2012
At GOTO Aarhus 2012 we are proud to offer 23 different tracks focusing on the most important topics in the world of software development covering both Front End, Back End, Architecture and Project & Process. Featured tracks are:

JavaScript is changing. It is built into high-performance servers, it is a much used translation target language, and it even powers a lot of the next generation of online games. In this track, we'll explore the new frontiers and look at where and why JavaScript is succeeding.

We are tackling more complexity every year, handling new challenges in how we think and work, and the available tools are being constantly improved. But much of what is being done today take their lessons from older languages that have since faded from public view. This track will examine historical languages that can provide useful lessons to the programmers of today, while also looking at some newer examples of programming languages developers should know about.

Apps of NoSQL
Over the past few years the NoSQL movement has grown significantly, allowing early adopters a much greater degree of freedom and more tradeoff alternatives when choosing database and persistence approaches for their applications. A number of companies have experienced success with various NoSQL approaches, achieving application capabilities, capacities, scale, and performance that would have been more difficult or even impossible using traditional approaches. The speakers in this track will explain the good, the bad, and the ugly of the current state of designing, building, and deploying NoSQL applications.

Continuous Delivery
"Continuous Delivery" offers financial and technical benefits. In many ways, it extends agile development principles to production and operations. Like agile development, Continuous Delivery causes a team to change how other activities are done. It needs some different approaches to architecture, design, and even requirements gathering. In this track, we will examine how Continuous Delivery affects these other parts of business analysis, software architecture, design, and construction.
