Presentation: The agile alibi

Track: Agile Tuesday / Time: Tuesday 11:45 - 12:30 / Location: Don Giovanni 1

Agility is unstoppable on its way into modern software development teams and corporate ITs in general. But because of agility being much more of an approach and a way of thinking than a fixed procedure, it can get and in many places gets misused as justification of chaotic processes. This talk satirically screens this grievence.

Presentation: Theoretical aspects of distributed systems - playfully illustrated

Track: Architecture Wednesday / Time: Wednesday 15:30 - 16:15 / Location: Don Giovanni 1

If you want to know about the principles and pitfalls of building distributed systems, you can either make your way through a whole pile of pretty prosaic theoretical books or you can just come into this talk and understand some of them real fast by watching a little playfull demostration. It's your choice.
