A Look at the Future of Software Development

English session - Intermediate

In this talk, we will introduce a novel design pattern called "micro-mind-services," inspired by neural networks, which promises to revolutionize how we build applications, particularly in conjunction with AI programming assistants.

Join me to discover this potentially groundbreaking design pattern and explore how it can transform software development in the age of AI programming assistants.

Theory to Practice: Building Reliable Event-Driven Services

English session - Beginner

Are you looking to build robust and efficient event-driven services? In this talk, you will learn the key concepts and strategies for achieving this, including handling at-least-once message delivery, idempotent command handling, and the laws of event-driven physics. Learn how to use the laws of event-driven physics and build event-driven services that simultaneously handle large volumes of events, network failures, and multiple events.
