Bootiful Testing

Spring User Group

Tue Dec 12 2017 23:30:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)

How would you feel if you knew that any pat of the code was at most a few minutes away from being shippable and delivered into production? How would you feel if you knew that any part of the code is a few ctrl+z’s away from being shippable and delivered into production? Emboldened and confident? Test driven development (TDD) gives you that. TDD allows you to proceed with confidence that you’re building the right thing. It provides you with imminent-horizons that you can meet and measure. TDD gives developers the confidence to go faster, secure in the knowledge that what they break they will fix and be able to improve. In this talk, join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) as he looks at how to test Spring applications and services. We’ll look at how to test basic components, mocks, how to take advantage of test slices, and how to test web applications. We’ll also look at how to ensure that API producers and API consumers work well together using consumer driven contract testing (CDCT) without sacrificing the testing pyramid for end-to-end integration tests.

Machine Learning Exposed: The Fundamentals

Spring User Group

Tue Jan 09 2018 23:30:00 GMT+0000 (UTC)

In the age of quantum computing, computer chip implants and artificial intelligence, it’s easy to feel left behind. For example, the term "machine learning" is increasingly bandied about in corporate settings and cocktail parties, but what is it, really?

In this session, James Weaver will give a gentle introduction to machine learning topics such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and deep learning. He’ll also give you an overview of what you can achieve with machine learning, as well as an intuition on the maths behind it.

The presenter is very aware that some material on machine learning can be maths-intensive, and off-putting if you are not confident with your calculus. Conversely, some material doesn’t go into enough detail so you don’t get a feel for how things actually work. This session will start right at the beginning with the basics, and build up in an approachable way to some of the most interesting techniques so you can get the most out of your machine learning adventure.


Speaker:

James Weaver (@JavaFXpert) is a Java developer, author, and speaker with a passion for helping Java to be increasingly leveraged in rich-client and and cloud-native applications.  James has written books including Inside Java, Beginning J2EE, the Pro JavaFX series, and Java with Raspberry Pi.  As an Advocate and Principal Technologist, James speaks internationally at software technology conferences about Java and Cloud Native development.
