Wednesday 4th December – What’s new in Infinispan 6.0

• querying in client/server mode
• better integration with the persistent storage
• multi-master cross-site replication
• support for heterogeneous clusters
Participants will take home a better understanding of Infinispan capabilities and the use cases in which it can be put at work. Ideally the attendees should have a basic knowledge of the in-memory data grids.

Wednesday 4th December – What’s new in Dart language?
Now that Dart version 1.0 is out, the language has stabilized, it’s a great time to get building real applications in Dart. Dart’s mission is to solve two key problems facing web developers and app users – that of structure and performance in complex web application.
Dart 1.0 has a rich ecosystem of tools, packages and tutorials and you’ll see how you can get up and running with this familiar, easy to learn language.
When coupled with Web Components, a new way of building web applications by treating everything as an element you can use Google’s Polymer web component project to build modular, fast Dart applications that run in all modern browsers.
Join Chris Bucket at Campus London to discover how you can make the most of Dart and its tools.

Monday 9th December – Evening Code and Coffee / Craft Beer
Similar to our morning Code and Coffee sessions, there is no strict format, only an opportunity to meet with like minded craftsmen, and discuss or collaborate on whatever you would like to.
Unlike our morning Code and Coffee sessions, you don’t have to get out of bed at some ungodly hour to be here. Just rock on down after work to find other night owls.
We’ll be meeting in “Look mum no hands!”, a laptop friendly cafe/bar that’s open until 10pm, and sells great coffee, good beers, and some tasty food if you make it before 8:30. They also repair bikes and hang them from the ceiling like chandeliers, because why not?
