Introduction to the Less Framework

The Introduction to LeSS – Large Scale Scrum framework, provides a peek into the Large Scale Scrum framework used by many global enterprises and companies. LeSS is packed with proven advice and practices for achieving value fast on large and complex projects. It provides a start-to-finish approach for large initiatives across the entire project spectrum and lifecycle.

This course is aimed at Scrum masters, Agile coaches, managers and team members who are involved in large agile project and development initiatives.

Node.js Workshop

JavaScript is the most used programming language on the planet today, listing 300K+ code-libraries and over 1 billion packages installed per week. You are invited to find out why your team should join this never-ending list of companies using Node.js in production

This 1 day seminar will give you an overview of Node.js fundamentals used to build scalable, user-facing, lightweight, real-time, full stack web-applications with Node and the Express framework. Node.js is a software system designed for writing highly scalable Internet applications, notably web servers. Programs are written in JavaScript, using event-driven, asynchronous I/O to minimize overhead and maximize scalability. Unlike most JavaScript programs, it is not executed in a web browser, but is instead a server-side JavaScript application.

Scale-able Web and Cloud Design Patterns

In order to design the right system to meet the web and cloud era, you need to use the right design patterns. In this workshop we’ll discuss and present some best practices: how to avoid single point of failure; how to design your data stores for growth; how to scale your web and application layer based on actual load and avoid downtime during upgrades. We will cover best practices for static content delivery as well as offloading content from your data stores.

The workshop will include theoretical background as well as code samples that can be used in your real life systems. We will cover design patterns for public clouds such as AWS and Azure as well private clouds such as OpenStack.
Some of the topics can be found in one of my latest posts: Scale Out Patterns for OpenStack (and other Cloud) based Systems

Hadoop Fundamentals workshop

In the past few years, Hadoop has become a standard, a basis and a model for the new age of database systems. By leveraging the power of distributed computing, modern programming models and a rich toolset that sits on top of it, Hadoop is one of the most used and fast growing technologies in the world today.

In this seminar, we will go over the basic concepts of Hadoop and distributed databases, learn how to write Hadoop jobs using the Map-Reduce model, talk about the various tools that sit on top of Hadoop and make our life easier. Just like any technology, Hadoop can have performance issues too like data skew and massive data movement. We will end the day with ways to overcome those performance issues that commonly occur in Hadoop.
