What can you expect from DecompileD 2018?

DecompileD is the conference for true movers and shakers of the tech scene: engineers and developers will gain first-hand insights into new technologies, trends and best practices in the fields of mobile, cloud and machine learning. Start-up founders, product owners and decision-makers will hear more than just buzzwords at DecompileD and can better understand current technological challenges and the state-of-the-art thanks to direct case studies.

How it works: in workshops, talks and sessions you will deepen your knowledge, benefit from the lessons learnt by others and have the chance to further develop yourself at DecompileD. In the meet-up area – a place where different meet-up groups introduce themselves – and at the after-show party with a poker event there will be the opportunity for ample networking and in-depth discussions.

The DecompileD Conference represents a new hub for exchange between true tech movers and shakers – be there!

Migrating the New York Times Games Platform to AppEngine
Darren McCleary, Software Engineer @ New York Times

In late 2016 a small team of engineers set out to completely rewrite the core of the NYTimes Crossword in Go and migrate it to GCP. In mid-2017, we achieved 100% traffic cutover with zero downtime for our 300K paying subscribers. We’ve cut our costs in half despite doubling our traffic in that time.

Multi-tenancy in SQL-on-Hadoop Clusters using Docker
Julian Eberius, Big Data Architect @ Vodafone

Stressed out because you need to run multiple installations of your Hadoop-based analytics solution, and operating one cluster is already a headache? I will present how made our product multi-tenancy-aware, and how we streamlined our operations process using Docker and declarative deployments.
