PRO WORKSHOP: How HTTP/2 Works and How Developers Can Leverage It
Recently, the HTTP protocol underwent a major revision after more than a decade, and the improved version—known officially as HTTP/2—promises to change a lot of things for app developers. HTTP/2 improvements like server push, file streaming and TCP connection optimizations will change the way we use the Internet. Although the underlying networking libraries for mobile devices will continue to handle the protocol changes automatically, it's good for developers to understand the intricacies of HTTP/2 so they can take full advantage of the new feature set. In this talk, the speaker will go through some of the notable new features of HTTP/2, how app developers can adapt to (and fully leverage) the changes and what improvements can HTTP/2 bring to your mobile app.

PRO TALK: Gradle: One Technology to Build Them All
Gradle is a build tool well known for its flexibility and extensibility, and because it makes it so easy to build applications based on any language. In this talk, we will demonstrate how Gradle helps - with a bit of code - to efficiently build a project that mixes multiple languages. This will be an opportunity to deep dive into some of the best functionalities out there to make a project build faster, simpler and more maintainable. This content is based on our experience migrating our rather complex open-source platform from Maven to Gradle.

PRO TALK: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Programming & Developer Productivity
Artificial Intelligence is creeping into our everyday lives and beginning to take over industries. AI can drive cars, planes, write your emails for you, play Go and even write songs. But can AI code? If not, what about using AI to build better software products? How can developers leverage AI to increase their productivity and enhance the programming experience?

We'll use this session to (a) survey the latest academic research on using AI for program analysis, (b) discuss how developer tools are starting to integrate AI, and (c) contemplate when AI could be capable of writing code autonomously.

Attendees will walk away with a grasp of how AI can improve developer productivity and job satisfaction, plus an understanding of challenges that lie ahead before any software is written entirely by AI.

Will cover:
- academic research on the topic
- Existing developer tools
- Vision for the near Future

PRO TALK: Visualizing Canary Rollouts with Istio and Helm
Istio is one of the most important things to happen to continuous delivery/deployment since Kubernetes. In this talk, you'll learn how to leverage Helm and Istio to create reliable automated deployment. To help us visualize the rollout we've built an interactive, open-source app and will ask audiences to help decide if a rollout continues or not. The secret sauce uses a little-known feature of Helm to create arrays of Kubernetes stacks and Codefresh to manage custom health-checks and keeping the rollouts synchronized. You don't want to miss this very visual and interactive talk.
