For this edition of GOTO Nights, our friends at Container Solutions have generously donated their awesome office right by Amsterdam Centraal Station for the evening. Joining you there will be one of their star speakers, Cyle Riggs, who will demonstrate a working serverless platform in just 100 lines of code. If that’s not all, CEO of implicit-explicit and co-founder of Software Circus, Mark Coleman, will present a practical solution to the data-management pain felt by many software development teams.

Talk Abstract: Live Coding – A Serverless Platform in 100 lines
I will build and demonstrate a working serverless platform, without using any existing serverless framework, live on stage. In implementing FaaS I will demonstrate the core components, features, and challenges of architecting and using various serverless platforms.
Mark is the CEO at Implicit-Explicit (http://implicit-explicit.com/), co-founder of the Software Circus (http://softwarecircus.io/) and Docker Randstad (https://www.meetup.com/Docker-Randstad/). He has more than 10 years of experience in Software Development, Configuration Management and IT Operations and has helped some of Europe’s largest companies to change the way they create and deliver software to their users.
Talk Abstract: Bringing data into the circle of control – Data management is killing your velocity!
Data management issues cause tremendous pain throughout the software development life cycle, and the increased adoption of cloud native computing practices is exacerbating the problem as applications change faster and employ multiple databases behind their microservices. Version control and software testing allow you to control your code, immutable infrastructure allows you to tame your infrastructure, but data is largely still managed using a set of flaky and disparate tools and practices. In this talk we’ll highlight three areas where data is causing software teams to grind to a halt and will explain why this is happening. Finally, we’ll introduce dotmesh an open source tool that we’ve developed which we think starts to address these issues.
