Talk #1

Java Road to cloud-native by  Jacek Dubikowski Senior Software Engineer at Virtuslab


Java is not typically associated with being cloud-native. JVM's cold start and memory foodprint try to prove it is not. However, the language creators and library providers have been working on changing the way people see Java. I would love to show you the efforts made and how engineers implement various ideas to amend the perception of the good old Java. So, let's buckle up and drive the road together. Once we are done, the last thing will be to answer whether Java is genuinely cloud-native. Unfortunately, I will leave the answer to every one of you.


Senior Software Engineer at Virtuslab with 6+ years of experience in Java and Kotlin. Interested in many IT-related topics, not only Java and JVM, which is his main focus. Loving talking with other passionate people about software-related stuff. Playing games, especially on Nintendo Switch, playing squash and reading historical books. Having a willingness to learn Rust and Haskell.

Talk #2

Grafana Dashboards with Jsonnet and mixins


A lot of dashboards exists for download and installation into Grafana. But what if you need to customize more than just the dashboard data-source? What if we want to treat dashboards as code? The talk is going to introduce Jsonnet and the concept of Grafana mixins for reusable and customizable Grafana dashboards as code.
