ready2order TechConf

ready2order is giving a small peak into the way we work and where we are moving. 

Our TechConf is set on the evenings of 16th and 17th of November and will be including six talks by experts in their field from ready2order and our amazing partners.

To kick it off we will hear a talk by Nikolina Belic from VegaIT about validating product ideas before implementing them. This will be followed by Alex Katlein with a general talk about microservices and then a talk by Mathias Lasser who will take us into the world of printers and reverse engineering.

The second day of talks will start with a presentation by Rachèl Heimbach from OpenValue Utrecht about implementing GraphQL. Our technical co-founder Christopher Fuchs is going to continue and our evenings rounded off by Sebastian Konieczek from OpenValue Düsseldorf who will tell us about testing and how to do it right.

1# Nikolina Belic: How to validate the feasibility and viability of product ideas before spending time and money making them.

When you are in an unknown environment facing many assumptions, spending time and money making a product or solving a problem before validating your assumptions sounds immature. That’s where hypothesis validation comes into place. To put it simply, a hypothesis is an assumption that can be proven wrong. Utilize the hypothesis validation approach to validate your assumptions and continuously learn before you move to development.

#2 Alex Katlein: Microservices and Technology

Microservices are all the rage in this day and age. We hear about Netflix and Google implementing thousands of microservices and delivering their products effectively. But what are microsevices, and which technologies enable us to write them to provide a useful, performant, and scalable product? What pitfalls and challenges do we face when trying to implement a microservice architecture? This talk will not go into much depth, rather it will give an overview about the principles of microservices, and introduce some feasible technologies that lend themselves to implementing such services.

4# Rachèl Heimbach: Going full stack with GraphQL

REST is a great convention on paper, but is it good enough for today's variety of clients like web, mobile, IoT etc? Is there a better alternative? GraphQL's query language can drastically change the way you think about data models and state-management. Besides solving REST's over-fetching and need for many HTTP calls, GraphQL can power your complete client/backend stack by introducing a single source of truth data model. This allows GraphQL based tooling like Apollo to take over your client's state-management and allows you to focus on what actually matters: building a great user experience.

6#  Sebastian Konieczek: Am I Testing the Right Way?

What can or should be considered the right size of a unit with regard to what is tested in isolation? Two unit-testing approaches explained! Pick any topic around testing and there will be at least two very contrary approaches that seem to be at odds. One of the many points of discussion around unit testing and in particular TDD, are the questions around what good boundaries for tests are. So the question is: Should you unit test each method on your classes or should you only unit test the public interfaces of a given feature or component?

Specifically: What can or should be considered the right size of a unit with regard to what is to be tested in isolation. This talk is a spin off of the article that was previously published on Foojay.io.
