PRO WORKSHOP: Building Realtime, Scalable Applications with GraphQL, Events and Serverless
The true power of GraphQL lies not just in its syntax but the fact that it makes it possible to reason about applications in ways we have never thought of before. The realtime bits of the GraphQL spec is one such horizons-widening abstraction when we use it as a tool to think about architecting an asynchronous, event-driven backend. Architecting the frontend of applications to consume a fundamentally async backend is still a challenge. GraphQL subscriptions and live-queries offer an opportunity to design a “reactive” contract between the backend and the frontend. In this model, an app makes a GraphQL mutation and then runs a GraphQL subscription to get updates as they happen. The business logic in serverless functions gets triggered automatically after the mutation and app gets success/error updates as and when they happen. With serverless functions, we get an auto-scalable, resilient backend which is perfect for processing asynchronous actions and stateless workloads. Such tasks include sending emails/push notifications, ETL, long running business logic etc. With no servers to provision and zero ops-tasks, it is very easy for a developer to write and deploy complex logic as functions in their favourite programming language.

PRO TALK: Go - Rust - Scala - Kotlin, What Should I Learn Next?
I have been coding in Java & Javascript for many years now and I want to learn something new. If I had to pick 1 Systems Programming and 1 Applications Programming language, which should/would that be. In this talk, I will compare go, rust, scala, kotlin and show how easy/difficult it is to write the first `Hello World` in these languages. We will look at the pros and cons of these 4 languages and will try to pick winners.

PRO TALK: Robots as a Developer 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, Misty Robotics is developing a first-of-its-kind programmable robot to "democratize" robots-- move them out of the world of "roboticist" and into the world of "Javascript and Python," so developers can invent thousands of applicable 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.

PRO TALK: Wisey: A Computer Language for Low Power Limited Memory Devices
While working as a tech lead on the Facebook Android newsfeed team I have learned a lot about what problems arise when using computer languages such as C++ and Java on mobile devices. Thus when I left Facebook in 2016 I decided to develop a new computer language specifically tailored to devices with little CPU power and limited memory. I will present this language and show why it is worth using it on mobile devices and for Internet of Things applications.
