< The music from your favourite Sherlock Holmes TV-show started playing in your head >
— Sherlock, nothing’s working again! Why?
— Elementary, my dear friend! Firstly, you’re trying to run Spring 5 on Java 7. Secondly, after a couple of years of using Groovy you’ve stopped respecting semicolons. And finally, your laptop’s battery is dead.
Yes, that’s gonna be an unusual talk. Here Holmes and Watson will solve a couple of riddles you’ve met, meet and will face in your everyday development. There won’t be any bytecode or GC guts, but we’ll show you the instruments, libraries and frameworks which puzzle ordinary developers in their daily routine and cause stagnation, missed deadlines and prolonged depression. As a matter of practice, in this talk, Sherlock and Watson will save you from facepalms and pitfalls someone had already fallen into.
