Apiumhub sponsors JBCNConf 2019

Well, as we started to speak about sponsors, let us remind you that Apiumhub is a Galaxy Basic sponsor of JBCNConf 2019. What does that mean? We will have a stand there and we prepared some presents and surprises for you!

We can’t wait to meet you there, please, pass by our stand and just say HI 🙂

 

Alvaro García – Tech Lead & Principal Engineer at Apiumhub gives a talk about Best practices in a modern (microservices) environment

After having seen “the latest fad” for decades, we realize that there is no silver bullet. In this talk, we revisit the basics, influenced by Extreme Programming Practices, Principles, and Values. This is a talk to reflect on why we do the things that we do, to bring a purpose to our practices, and to review what has been working over the last 20 years, even if this is not so well-known yet.

We really hope you will love this event!


Btw, if you are interested in attending other software event in Barcelona, we recommend you: Global Software Architecture Summit, which will take place in Alimara Hotel 10th of October.

See you there?
