Why It’s Worth Going

  • Talk in person

  • Feel the atmosphere of the offline

    To have a change of scenery, to distract and have a good time. To gain fresh impressions and new acquaintances.
    *And for some, to visit Petersburg in the summer.

    Two Years in the Life of a Kotlin Deep Learning Library: From Prototype to Release 4

    Language -RU

    Alexey will tell how in the dungeons of JetBrains the Kotlin-based deep learning library - KotlinDL - was forged. This talk is not about Deep Learning, as such, but about the uneasy path of growing JVM library for Data Science ecosystem from scratch and about overcoming difficulties with C++ and Python ecosystems. 

    This is not a tutorial or an advertisement for the framework, but rather a chronicle of an experiment that got out of its creator's control. In every sense.

  • Room 3

    Partner’s talk

    How do we do online conferences?

    Language -RU

    We'll take a look behind the scenes and tell you how the JRG team makes conferences happen. You will learn how a speaker's request is turned into a conference report. What data are collected in the player and how the statistics are built. What systems are involved in conference production and on what technologies.

  • Room 1

    Talk

    What's in my POM for you?

    Language -RU

    In the talk we will review and analyze the non-obvious points in the capabilities provided by Maven in terms of: defining dependencies, configuring plugins and working with the assembly lifecycle.

    Consider the typical problems you might encounter and how to solve them. Consider the nuances of working in a closed corporate environment, and talk about developing your own plugins and archetypes to support the development process; when you might need it and where to start.

    We will talk about a tool that we use every day and know not too well to say with confidence what and how you can do with it.

    Language -RU

    Разговор в главной студии с теми, кто не только помнит JPoint образца «офлайн» и «до пандемии», но и выступал на нем с докладом. Чаще всего не с одним. Вспоминаем, обсуждаем темы, которые были актуальны тогда, соотносим с тем, что происходит сейчас.

    Reactive: understand and accept

    Language -RU

    Reactive is cool! Tatiana will talk about the middle layer of mobile, where there are 300 microservices and one third of them are on Project Reactor. At the techtalk she will break down the basics of Reactive and show how the pros of the library can outweigh the cons. She'll also talk about overhead and "illogical" behavior in reactive programming. And we'll break down the tests so we avoid screwing around in the prod.

    The JPoint Anthology: A Conversation with Nikita Lipsky

    Language -RU

    A conversation in the main studio with those who not only remember JPoint from "offline" and "before the pandemic," but also spoke at it. More often than not, more than one. We recall, discuss topics that were relevant then, relate them to what's happening now.

    Talk

    Mocks vs Testcontainers

    Language -RU

    Do we even need mocks when we have Testcontainers? If a mock doesn't work the same way as a "real" system, what is its use? Can flakiness be avoided in integration tests? Is it true that Testcontainers will solve all integration test problems and is it time to write off the H2 database?

    A talk for developers creating integration tests for programs working with databases, caches, streaming and batch systems.
