We are building a nice lineup of events and opportunites to meet, and we are very excited to announce that Exoscale will participate in the following two great conferences this fall: GOTO Berlin and Golab.

GOTOBerlin 2018

GOTO Berlin takes place the week from October 29th to November 2nd. The first two days are dedicated to workshops, the rest of the week to regular talks. This year, themes revolve around people, privacy and of course programming.

Whatever one’s background, there’s bound to be something to catch your interest. Our team’s choice so far includes the following:

Exoscale’s Nicolas Frankel, who recently joined the team, will present a talk on securing the JVM.

Securing the JVM for a non-trivial application is complex and time-consuming but mandatory: the risks of not securing it could be disastrous. We will show some of the nasty things one could do in an unsecured JVM and how to secure it.

GoLab 2018

GoLab will be held in Italy, in sunny Florence, on October 22nd and 23rd. As its names implies, the Go language sits at the core of the conference, with tracks covering the entire spectrum of the language, from Embedded Systems down to Web Development and Dev Experience.

Here are a couple of talks worth watching:

  • Computer Vision Using Go And OpenCV 3
  • Goroutines: the dark side of the runtime
  • Applying serverless architecture pattern to distributed data processing

Our own Yoan Blanc will have a talk “Go tricks from the trenches”. Without revealing too much, this lecture is about some powerful features of Go, which are used in the implementation of the egoscale library, including closures and reflection.

We will have a booth at both events, and our team will be available to answer your questions. Don’t miss them, and if you happen to be there as well, be sure to pass by and say hello!
