Join the first Productboard Backend Meetup in Brno!

About this event

Join us for our in-person meetup at Impact Hub Brno! We’re excited to host our first Backend Meetup in Brno!

We have put together an insightful program:

Talk 1: Lessons learned by querying Elastic Search Service in the async world

Speaker: Pavel Spáčil, Software Engineer at Productboard

Description: A few months ago, we released a new feature in Productboard called Notes Automation, which allows automatic processing of notes based on given rules.

In this talk, I will walk you through the implementation process, showcase the pitfalls we’ve fallen into in the world of asynchronous processing, and show you how to determine if automation actually works as it should.

Talk 2: Scaling distributed workflow using Prefect

Speaker: Lukáš Polák, Technical Lead at Ataccama

Description: In Ataccama, we looked for a way to deploy, manage, schedule, and scale python-based workloads – data processing jobs or automated extraction of business intelligence. We are thrilled to share our experience with Prefect and Dask with you. This setup allowed us to seamlessly scale our workflows in the Kubernetes environment. In this talk, we compare Prefect with other popular frameworks (ease of use, unit tests, observability, …), how we approach workload management, and demonstrate the dev-to-production path.

Lightning Talk 3: Context receivers

Speaker: Martin Tošovský, Backend Engineer at SentinelOne
