XDEV at the Kansas City Developer Conference 2024

America is calling: from June 26 to 28, the Kansas City Developer Conference (KCDC) will once again take place in Kansas City, Missouri. Our CEO Richard Fichtner will be attending as a speaker and representing XDEV with two sessions: one solo and one with co-speaker Micah Silverman.

We are proud to be part of this great and well-organized conference that covers all aspects of software development and agile project management, bringing together a diverse mix of developers, UI/UX designers and project managers from the US and around the world. KCDC will be held in the heart of the city, at the Kansas City Convention Center.

You can listen to our Richard talking about those two topics:

Java Reborn: Write Kindergarten-Code and get high-performance apps
  • Date: Thursday, 27 June 2024
  • Time: 10:00 – 11:00 am (CDT)
  • Speaker: Richard Fichtner
  • Details:

    28 years after its first release Java is reborn to adapt itself to a changed world. The evolution of Java is totally different than Richard imagined.
    Join him and discover how features like VirtualThreads allow us to write code like in Java 101 and get high-performance apps at the same time. Unlearn reactive programming and object-relational mapping to come back to the beautiful beginning of Java. Use standard data structures like List and Map to model your data. Find joy again in debugging and reading stacktraces. Get rid of the fear that you might block a Thread.
    You can use the techniques shown in this talk today, to improve developer productivity and make your project's code easy to write, understand, troubleshoot and maintain.


Apache Maven survival guide “Bring it on! -Mode” #no-external-tools #only-standard-plugins 
  • Date: Thursday, 27 June 2024
  • Time: 2:30 – 3:30 pm (CDT)
  • Speaker: Richard Fichtner & Micah Silverman (Director DevSecOps Acceleration at Snyk)
  • Details:
    In many projects, Apache Maven is used and does some stuff - who knows what? In this session, we will pack the best practices from over 10 years of projects into a pom.xml. And you will know what it does and why it's there. Using practical examples, we will look at how to: solve problems in the build, make the build reproducible, find security issues in the code, find security issues in the build, make the legal department happy, make the build faster, reduce the cost of the build and emit less CO2.
    We can do all of this without commercial or additional products - only with Maven standard plugins.
