Backend Meetup

During the pandemic, we moved into new offices, which have already been named Best Startup Office of the Year. We’re excited to show you our new event space (in person) as we host our second Backend meetup of 2021!

The talks will be live-streamed, and the recordings will be available online afterward — so if you can’t attend in person, you can tune in or catch up later.

We’ve put together an awesome program for you:

Talk 1: Project Loom – the future of JVM parallelism

Speaker: Lukáš Křečan, Software Engineer at Productboard

Description: If you really need to scale your application or have long running requests on JVM, you either have to use reactive programming or coroutines. It solves the scalability problem but you have to pay quite a substantial price for it. Reactive code is much harder to debug and reason about. Oracle prepares Project Loom that will let you have your cake and eat it. We will walk through different parallelisation paradigms and will show that Project Loom is a real game-changer.

Talk 2: TBA


6pm — Doors open

6:30pm — Talk 1: Project Loom – the future of JVM parallelism – Lukáš Křečan

7pm — Talk 2: TBA

7:30pm — Backend quiz

7:40-10pm — Networking

Doors open at 6pm, and we’ll be kicking the meetup off promptly at 6:30pm, so don’t be — too late!

In addition to great talks and people, you can also look forward to tasty food, lemonade, prosecco and beer on tap from Dva Kohouti. You can also win some cool Productboard swag in our Backend quiz!

We are really looking forward to seeing you. 🙌

We look forward to meeting so many great people together. However, safety is a priority! To attend, you’ll need a negative Covid test that’s no older than three days. If you have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days, then you don’t need one. And if you can prove that you’ve had Covid in the last 180 days, that works, too.
